Here is my story i will start with symptoms first:
neck pounding and sore throat (BAD)
WHOLE head throbbing and back of head
constant nose blowing
burning skin when something watches it
I was on allergy shots for three years for SEVERE tree, weed, dust, mold, grass allergies, being allergic to every type.
I have fibromyalgia and BEFORE I knew that, I stopped my allergy shots out of no where about SEVEN months ago just to see if the shots were causing all over body pain, headaches, and fatigue, it continues today so I know it is not the shots.
Since about 7 months ago I'd say I have been getting SICK, being on antibiotics every month for "sinus infections" my convenience care doctors diagnosed. They recommended an ENT specialist since I get them so often.
I went to my specialist a day after my last doctor appt. (they put me on antibiotics) and I was still very "sick" at the specialist appt. He took a look in my nose first and said "my god do you breathe at ALL through that thing? You have a badddd deviated septum.."
He found NO signs of infection in my ears, throat, nose, etc when other drs said it was bad in there. He also took my blood to check any viruses and checked my blood count, all was normal. So was my CT scan, clear sinuses.
He recommended allergy testing and I went and agreed to get a second opinion, I again tested positive for all the environmental kind bad as usual, cats is a new one and I have 2 indoor ones.
ALSO, peanuts and soy is a new allergy!!!!!!!!!
They are thinking because I stopped my shots out of no where that I am this bad because of it and I am getting worse.
I have been missing work because I just feel so incredibly sick, sometimes I fear I'll have to go to the hospital because I feel so weak I can't even open a juice bottle because I ache so bad.
I am getting over it today when yesterday I was so sick I couldn't even work a 4 hr shift I felt like I was going to faint from a fever and constant hot and cold chills.
My specialist said all the allergies positive tested were good news and he thinks the shots will make me feel better in a few months.. then he will give me surgery for my nose because right now he said it would do more harm than good.
Am I crazy, is HE crazy?? should I see someone else? He seems to know what he is talking about he just is confused to why I feel so bad every week and am constantly sick when he sees nothing wrong with me..
anyone else this bad.. ever?
I feel like I actually get worse at work, I feel okay sometimes then my throat starts hurting then I am effed. Customers also look at my grossed out and go "ohh do you have that thing going around...?" And i'm like no, I have allergies I think. I don't get anyone sick...
There's days like yesterday where I just wake up crying because I feel so sick and it's not fair I'm only 20 and I feel like my life is wasting away I just want to sleep most of the time. And my family and friends just don't understand and say I'm just dramatic and if a specialist told me I wasn't actually sick then I shouldn't feel sick
