| | Allergic to everything!
Hi, i am a 28 year old woman and i have become allergic to nearly everything, i dont know what is going on! i get chronic hives usually i will get like one or 2 here and there, i get neck swelling , itchy throat sometimes. and pain in stomach sometimes. so started back a couple years ago i went to the doctor complaining of fatigue, tireness and numbness i thought i had MS but they kept brushing everything off as anxiety. i do have anxiety but my symptoms are more severe then that lol . so i was taking a blood pressure medication a while back and i got really agitated/anxiety feeling, i flushed from my chest up.. burning on fire.. no hives. but hearrate was 160bpm. i was admitted to the psych ward. so i thought that would help me and they would put me on some medication and i would be fine cause i really believed it was all anxiety related cause i took the doctors advice. they switched my meds and i started taking some psych meds.. not too long after i was back in psych wards with weird symptoms, crawling sensations, agitation, burning face rashes. my face for the last 4 years will flush bright red and burn and i get urticaria rashes under my chin. when i was in the psych ward i was so scared cause i new in my heart i didnt belong there and i had a panic attack on top of that, they looked at me and said omg you are breaking out in hives, i had hives on my chest and face and i went to sleep and that was that. then i still had the crawling sensation and ended up having really fowl smelling urine, it was a really bad toxic smell! i told the nurse she said prob a uti and gave me some antibiotics,. the pill was too big to take so i chewed it up and ate it and that is when i noticed my throat was started to have a closing sensation. i told the nurse and she said "its anxiety" i said i dont think so and she said well did you take anything new, i said no besides the antibiotic and i had some orange juice and rice krispies she said well if you ate it before you will be fine., i then went to sleep and thank god woke up!. i still took the meds but started getting hives on my wrists and i kept taking the celexa they gave me but i would itch like crazy and get hives. i was obviously reacting to it. so that a couple years ago ..oh and i do have a brain lesion but they said its most likely from migranes. i also have a small thyroid nodule 1.2 cm which they said its most likely nothing. so i stopped taking the celexa and i still have the itching here and there but not as bad. so i was still getting burning face rashes then i went to an allergist. i also want to say i always have abnormal ekgs, but they said not to worry.. ok so i went to an allergist cause of that along with everytime i would eat the side of my neck would swell, if i pressed on it i would hear a clicking noise it was pretty scary. so i went to the allergist she tested me for
eggs -neg /wheat- small pos/ milk - neg/ corn-pos /soy - neg/ tomato - pos
orange -pos /strawberry -pos /guar gum /talc -pos/ almonds -neg /chocolate-neg that was all done with skin testing, so i wanted a second opionion and decided to go to a doctor who was one of the best allergists from where i am , well he has won an award or something, this man was very nice but when he tested my arm, i clearly was reactiing to so many things and he didnt measure any hives he just glanced and said you arent allergic to anything but corn and bananas. i told him i never reacted to bananas but i have a kiwi allergy so he said he will order blood work cause he said i have chronic hives! so we tested for wheat was positive corn was negative
and grains very small pos 1 point over
so he said he did not think the neck swelling was due to allergy, he told me to avoid wheat and see what happens well i did and a lot of the swelling went away but i have avoided it now for 2 months and its still happening but not all the time. so he did blood work on me for a lot of things and everything was negative, my white blood count has always been slightly high. but everything eles was neg. so its been a year and i just made an appt with a great allergic up the ways but its worth it, everything i been eating i been reacting to, i was eating eggs, and some meat here and there i react now to it, i dont know what to do i am so scared. i also had more allergy tests for a blood test and i tested postive to so many things, all fruit, veggies, and others. i was taking zyrtec and then woke up with tons of hives so i stopped taking it, then i took a tiny drop of benadryl after eating and i had horrible stomach pain, i went to the emergency room last night they said they think ulcer, they hooked me up to an iv and gave me prilosec , when i went home i woke up looking like a monster covered in huge hives! i never has them that bad, so i went back to the hospital , they said they never seen anyone like me before react to so many things and to see an immunologist, i was given prednisone, cleared hives right up but im still itchy. my recent blood work was this, ill tell you all the adnormal results
osmolality (calculated) 270
blood urine -trace
prothrombin time 13.5
bacteria moderate (urine)
epithelial cells 8-12 moderate (urine)
could any autoimmune disorders cause any of this??
