Discussions that mention allegra

Allergies board


DH has been sick off an on since Nov. His symptoms include:
- headaches right behind the nose
- swollen lymph nodes
- difficulty concentrating
- fatigue

He's been to the Dr. a number of times. They did an allergy test and found that he is allergic to a number of things. Other bloodwork came back normal. CT scan came back normal.

So, the doctors think it is allergies causing him to feel bad. Yet, he never has a runny nose and doesn't feel congested. No itchy throat or eyes. He's tried Allegra and that didn't help, either.

Can allergies cause these symptoms without the congestion?

That's hilarious... I *just* posted at the same time saying I didn't have congestion, only fatigue and feeling like a zombie. I used to think I was depressed, but now I think the "down/fatigued" feelings happen when pollens and molds are high in my area. Most websites and allergy symptoms don't mention fatigue as the main symptom, so that's why I didn't suspect allergies for a long time.

When I have taken medications like Allegra, Clairitn, they don't seem to help.
