I'm presently in the same boat and after all the tests the doctors said it was allergy.if I don't die then I'll believe them because I have a hard time believing it is as well. But this all started in march when this years fantastic 2012 allergy season started
Allergies can really make a person MISERABLE and this has been the worst season for me since 1985. My suggestion to you is to go buy a nasal rinse and do that twice a day, but make sure you use a solution that is good for the nose and not salt and water because salt and water can do damage to the membranes. I use a Niel bottle and Dr. Grossman-or something like that-packages. Dr. G. is an ear/nose and throat man and my allergist said it is fine to use his stuff, but I think the people who put out that Niel bottle also put out a rinse. This will help you get rid of a lot of those toxins in your body. It is no miracle, but certainly has helped me. Allergies can go into the ears and effect one's balance as well as mess up one's thinking and the list goes on and on. Good luck.
I have had allergies for 20 years and have had all of the symptoms of a flu. Including deformities. My eyes would swell shut and my cheekbones would disappear because of all the swelling in my face. I had tummy troubles just the same because of all the post nasal drip. You should also look into food intolerance's because after a several years of Ragweed allergy I developed an allergy to Sunflower. My stomach has NEVER been the same again. Good luck! Hope you feel better!
If your stomach has never been the same, try aloe vera juice. It had done wonders for people with touch stomachs. I don't take the juice, but know someone who does. I take a very strong aloe vera pill.

I just put a post out asking the same question. Last winter and this fall I have been miserable, I did not think that allergies could make me have nausea and diarrhea but the last 2 yrs I have had it non stop. I went to my GI and we did a colonoscopy twice, one last December and one in May. In December it came back so bad the thought it was UC / Colitis but when I did not feel better on the meds I got a second opinion. The second C-Scope came back clean, not scare tissue nothing. They now think it was a bad allergic outbreak from over exposure to mold. Crazy- I have terrible allergies and get 3 shots a week but I did not think that could cause this.
Apparently it can, especially on days where the pollen count is really high. Like today I am sick as a dog, miserable I just want to go home and crawl into bed.
Yeah my post nasal drip went away and since last week Wednesday it came back with a vengence so has my facial pain from swollen sinuses and tight throat, it's October for gods sake I mean *** !! I called my best friend and he's using his asthma pump bigtime and coughing up phlegm plus he is exhausted!! If all my ailments have been allergies , and they say next summer/spring/ fall is supposed to be the same .....I'm volunteering to live on the moon
