Hello! I have a wide range of symptoms and after seeing various drs I am at my wits end. I have had symptoms for year now but most recent ones are, sinus pressure, ear fullness, popping and sometimes slight pain, post nasal drip, weakness and achiness in forearms and calves with burning sensation sometimes. Ent did sinus scan and found nothing, GP thinks it's stress and anxiety. I've read this can all be allergy related. Any advice for me??
I haven't done allergy testing yet because I was feeling out my other drs. and seeing if they thought it was neuro or not. I am a self-admitted hypochondriac! My gp doesn't think it's allergies, she thinks it's all in my head!
Hi Peyjad. I hate to hear that the doctors are all thinking it's in your head! Sorry to hear that. Sounds to me you really do have some symptoms and they just don't have any answers for you. From your symptoms, they really do sound like they are allergy-related. Yeah, so I would do some allergy testing if I were you. It wouldn't surprise me if they found some sensitivity there. My food allergies were causing my anxiety/panic symptoms and they are now gone. See how it can all be related? The anxiety was the symptom or warning I was eating what I wasn't supposed to. So hopefully this can give you a better idea of what's up. Good luck and let us know how it all goes for you!
Thanks for the advice! I definately am going to go get testing. I'm still waiting for some blood tests but that's all. I wake up feeling fine usually than as the morning goes on I get this intense pressure in my nose (w/o any drainage???) and constant ear popping. Benadryl makes me so sleepy, what other antihistamines are good? Zyrtec, claritin? I did take my kid's Zyrtec but only for 2 days, does it take awhile to start working? I appreciate all your advice and will keep you updated on what I found out!
