Are you allergic?
« on: March 26, 2017, 07:48:16 am »
Got any allergies? What things are you allergic to? How mild or severe do your allergies get? What symptoms do you get such as stuffy nose, itchy watery eyes, etc.? Right now, my allergies are just starting this Spring. I'm allergic to ragweed pollen.  x_x

Pollen.
Cats.
Foods.
.......or something else?

Have moderate allergies to just about everything that blooms it seems - grass, dogwoods, ragweed, oak pollen in particular. Just...yikes. I don't just have spring allergies, I have to take allergy meds all year. Thankfully, though, most of those are just typical hay-fever, itchy-eye, funny nose, stuffy, yadayada allergies.

Plus...cats (mild). And some drug allergies too (severe). And latex (mild). And papayas (severe). And...yeah.

I have a lot of allergies. haha

Yep. food, chemical and plant life.

Pork
Chocolate
Lot's of pollens and molds.
Poison ivy, oak and sumac. All year long. I've ended up getting shots and treated in December.
Ammonia
Also adversely effected by hot and spicy stuff. Just can't eat it.

I am allergic to grass, pollen (ragweed, several other plants), cat dander (severe), and rodent dander (mild to severe). I am intolerant to onions and garlic, especially raw forms of these foods. Some mild intolerance to milk, and peppers.

My reactions vary...usually just the annoying sneezing fits, itchy and watery eyes, and sinus congestion. Around cats, rodents and lavender I get hives in addition to hay fever. My food intolerances result in instant hiccups and my head usually ends up in the toilet after that.  :P  If hiccups don't happen...well...the toilet is my friend, let's just say.  x_x  :P

I have terrible allergies, but I don't know what I'm allergic to. Every local doctor I've been to, it's gone like this:


The nurse comes in and does routine nurse things that have nothing to do with allergies. Then the doctor comes in does routine doctor things that have nothing to do with allergies. (Blood pressure, stethoscope, etc.)


DOCTOR: So, what seems to be the problem?

ME: I have to blow my nose all the time.

The doctor scribbles out a random perscription.

DOCTOR: Take this for two weeks. The receptionist will make you another appointment so you can come back and tell me how it worked. Bye!

ME: Aren't you going to run any tests?

DOCTOR: Oh, there are so many allergens around here, there's no way we can tell what you're allergic to! Just take that prescription and we'll go from there!

Two weeks later.

DOCTOR: So, how did that medication work out?

ME: It didn't do anything.

DOCTOR: Oh.

Scribbles another random prescription.

DOCTOR: Here, try this one. Come back and see me in two weeks. Oh, by the way, you can't eat or drink any dairy with this one.

ME: So, you can't do that pin prick allergy test, like they show on TV?

DOCTOR: Nope! Come back in two weeks!


Then I tried an allergy specialist...


ME: I've been to all these doctors and all they do is write me random prescriptions. I didn't even try the last medication, because they never work. I don't want to leave here until I find out what I'm allergic to.

SPECIALIST: Sure.

The specialist runs a little plumber's snake with a light at the end up my nose.

SPECIALIST: Well, I have no idea what's causing your allergies!
 
Scribbles out a random perscription.

SPECIALIST: Take this for two weeks, then --

ME: Wait! Can't you run any tests?

SPECIALIST: Well, does fluid come out when you tip your head forward?

ME: Not really.

SPECIALIST: Well then, this probably isn't the problem, but you could get a CAT scan to see if your brain fluid is leaking. It costs $5,000. Meanwhile, take this medication for two weeks... and ("you've been a naughty patient" voice) make sure you actually take it this time.

I even tried holistic medicine. My girlfriend had a cousin who was into that. She tried to pull down my one hand while I held various foods in the other, to see if they made me "weak." I didn't even necessarily touch the food - for example, a closed jar of peanut butter. I guess she thought it was the food's "aura" that I was allergic to?


All I've actually found that helps is to make sure I get enough sleep.

as far as i know a mild cat and dog allergy (not the best one as my parents have a cat and my boyfriend a dog who stays at his parents), maybe a rubber allergy as it runs in the family, not sure tho, and possible hay-fever, every spring my hands decide to get itchy and covered in red bumps :P

I wish I could like this post!  That's an awesome answer!  :D


I do have pollen allergies, but just keep taking my daily vitamins and extra vitamin C to keep the immune system going and I don't need any drugs.

Hayfever, but not as bad as in my teens. I have a brother who was allegic to Crazy Foam. It was a bath item that came in an aerosol can and marketed to kids back in the mid-1960s.

Apparently the supposedly hayfever seems to be a mild sun allergie, my mom has the same and when the sun shines on my arms it slightly feels like burning and it starts to itch like crazy :3

I'm allergic to my own cat.. XD

But he's cute, so I don't mind having a runny nose or itchy eyes after playing with him.
Awoo
