I'm not sure where to start, One year ago this month I was experiencing server pain in my left knee, I thought I had hurt it at hunting camp, it hurt for about 2 weeks, then one day it just went away, The next day my toung swelled up, then my face, then on my leg, my palms would iche I would get ichey on my shins, some times I feel short of breath. this all occures at differnt times, Ive spent weeks keeping track of food and things im exposed, but can make and connections.
For a history , Ive had sinous problems all my life, Im a dairy farmer and get exposed to cloriene everyday. Have pets which require flee powder, get bumped,brused and cut often. But these exposures are nothing new.
Last summer 07 July I had sinous surgey, to clean out pollips, had a tooth pulled inAug 07, and was on antibitics for both. I have toenail fungus, have had some deep cuts that got infected. One on my shin that swelled up after about 4 days I went to the doctor and was IV'ed antibotics
I take Zertec everyday for a year, prednisone if I swell . Zantec when needed for acid reflux. Stress seems to increace the occurance.

  • Ouch! Sorry you have so many issues. You need to see an allergist as the swelling in your throat can be a matter of life and death!!!!!!! There are lots of things that can cause this, and an allergist can sort it out for you. You may have to carry an Epi-Pen, but trust me, that is not a big deal. PLEASE see a doctor ASAP! And thank you for being a farmer! --Proud cousin of some FFA folks.

Pollips, itching and stuff... you have a mercury toxicity!, do you have amalgams? you need to detoxify yourself, pills and "medicines" will always make things worse in the long run,
