I am have bad reactions to perfume, which makes it difficult for me to go indoors. I get pain started at the right side of my neck and it goes down to the right chest area. Sometimes it goes down my whole right side and my right leg gets stiff.

I have gone to MD's, Pulmonary specialist, Chiropractor, Acuppunturist, and have had hair analysis. I do acupressure daily, had mercury fillings taken out, and try to eat right. I take Taurine, Air Power, Chromium, and Acidophidus Still can only go to church for 20 minutes.

Anybody got any suggestions? Mind you I don't have insurance. For I work for Hertz-Rent-a-Car and they are to broke to give people in my dept. any insurance.

  • Sounds more like you have chemical sensitivities to some petroleum product. Also many perfumes use essential oils (which are extremely potent) for their scents. Here's a site that's at least interesting to read from: http://www.users.globalnet.co.uk/~aair/perfume_corr.htm
