hello everyone,hope you are all ok.
i have been through **** and back,in my last post i posted about the probs i have been having since christmas,well to be honest with you things arnt still much better.
i had an appointment last friday to see my doc and missed it as i had such a bad night i overslept,the receptionist phoned me to say that the doc wants to see me in relation to what has been going on since christmas.(as i havnt seen my reg doc for a while)
i explined i havnt been well and overslept,she made me an appointment for the 25th of this month,to see my own doc they cant get me in before as they have been unindated with patients,so she made me an appointment to see another doc,which i did this monday.
well what i thought as being constant colds has turned out to be chronic rhinitis,she look in my ears,nasal passage and said it is all inflamed,so put me on a nasal steroid,antibiotics,different antihistamine.
she had a look at the last bloodtests i had done and said oh yes it is high im not sure what test she meant,i assumed it must be somethinh to do with histamines,iga test i think,i was never informed that this test was high,which annoyed me a little as they know i have skin issues,i am sure this could off been prevented with how ill i have been.
well the flu-like sx has done me in,this time in the 18yrs of being ill it had beat me i just couldnt take no more,well to add to it all i started all the new meds on monday,early this morning i wake up scratching all over with welts everywhere the sneezing so severe, i am have a allergic reaction to the antibs so rung the out doc at 5:30 this am told me to take piriton if it didnt settle or got worse to go straight to casualty.
after all this it did start to subside,mythe doc who prescribed it for me phone me about midday this morning,i am in tears now explaining i cant take no more,so she tried to reassure me that the meds i am on will do it with a different antib which she prescribed.
she said my immune system is so over active it is causing allergies,sinus,basically making me very ill.
well i am not happy with this as i have been like thiis for six years which has got progressively chronic now,i seen a dermy many years ago who basically threw me out told me it was my pets well i knew this wasnt the case in which a prick test proved it,just said take antihistamines for 2yrs youll be fine that was 6yrs ago,i cant come of them as i welt all over for no reason.
when i back to see my g.p. i will ask to be refered to a immuneologist,as i know this runs much deeper than skin probs.
other people i know with the same illness as me does not suffer with their skin and allergies like i do.
do any of you think this is relevent to proving perhaps that it is autoimmune probs,i do worry as my dad has been neglected with the same surgery now he is in a right mess.
any suggestion would be greatly recieved.
many thanx jo8
