I went to an allergist and found myself allergic to what the whole world is allergic to trees, grass, and molds. He put me on Allegra which made me sleep for two days. He didn't answer my questions about ringing ears which were driving me cracy. I told him that I was overly sensitive to weather changes and that seemed to be my biggest problem. Then I went to a family phsician who gave me a celeaston shot. It helped the ringing in my ears some, but my blood pressure on top was 174 and my face is blood red. Can anybody out there help me. My guess is I have vasomotor Rhitinitis, but I'm sure no Dr.

  • I think you have non allergic rhinitis, which is caused by weather changeand no medications or allergy shots help. You just have to ride it out. If you get inflammed sinuses from it,I would ask your doctor for prednisone, It has always helped me. I had skin testing and none of my allergies have increased, all I can think of is the dust mites are out from weather change when it gets warmer in your room and believe me, they can lower your immune system and cause miserable allergy and sinus symptoms , believe me I know Ive suffered through it. Good Luck
