I also had to ask my doctor because I also notice when i'm feeling bad with my throat and stuff, I get real sore around my underarm. My doctor advised me that you also have lymph nodes there and all over your body. I know what you're going through and it's quite painful and very discomforting.
thanks i appreciate The response. it's really a shame that they have no way of preventing allergies from getting this bad in the first place. when i was much younger and my allergies were bad i would just sneeze a lot and have a runny nose. now,i dont sneeze but am always congested and am experiencing pain, which only started about a yr ago. ive gotten to the point where my Allergist told me i cant use zyrtec or any antihistimines b/c they will just clog and dry me up more. ive had Sinus surgery too, but it wasnt as beneficial as they said it would be. they just keep wanting to push more surgeries. why couldnt they just Get it right the first time?
i know stress really makes allergies and sinusitis worse. i Was put on an anti-anxiety med for a short time, and my allergies disappeared completely. but they wanted to keep up-ing my doseage and i said forget it.
is this Season a bad time for your allergies?
