I never had allergies as a child. About 3 years ago I developed really bad outdoor seasonal allergies. I took Zyrtec and then switched to Allegra 180. This past September I developed a case of hay fever and got a cortisone shot. I was tested for outdoor allergies and came back positive to every type of pollen, grass and tree. I also had a food rast test, which came back positive for all grains, apples, soy, etc. I did a many food challenge diets and still found myself with GI issues. I had an upper endoscopy, colonoscopy, barium swallow, and everything has come back normal. I have suffered about 9 episodes of anaphylaxis and nothing seems to help. They happen on vacation, in the dorm, and at home. I usually find myself nauseous, then vomit, break out in hives usually on my face neck and chest, my throat begins to close and I faint. I have used my Epi-Pen about 5 times. I have been on prednisone for two months and still had reactions when tapering. I tested negative for lupus and lymphoma. My diagnoses have gone from oral allergy syndrome, to soy allergy, gluten allergy, exercised induces gluten allergy and now I’m at a latex allergy (I don’t believe it though). Please help, any suggestions are welcome!Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
