Hi, I'm hoping someone here can offer some suggestions.
Several years ago I was diagnosed with a severe allergy to mold. I had the allergy tests & the welts appeared on my back when the needle was still about 2 inches from my skin. The doctor told me that a shot of penicillin would likely kill me. I started taking the allergy shots & things improved. My symptoms at the time were : headaches , constant fatigue , fuzzy brain ;dry & burning mouth & throat, muscle weakness. I found out that it was the building that I was working in that had caused the problem. So I left that job & gave up my medical plan. So no more allergy shots.
Then I took a job in the southern US & moved into a new apartment. I knew there was something wrong with the apartment shortly after moving in. I soon became a totally different person. I was cranky all the time , I'd fight with anybody & all I wanted to do was sleep. And I had this constant noise in my head. It was the local radio station host that I listened to , constantly stating his radio station call numbers over & over. I'm sure you are all now deciding that I am insane. I assure you that I am not. I was not , in the least bit , surprised to find out that the apartment I had rented had recieved extensive damage from a hurricane a few years earlier.
Fast forward several years. I was at work at a different job & started to feel really weird. Thought I was having a stroke.. The left side of my face,my left arm & my left leg would get all tingly & go numb. When I went outside everything would get better...if it was a nice sunny day. I found out that my employer had brought in numerous items that had been left out in the rain for years, thus bringing in the mold.
I don't work there anymore but my problems seem to be accompany me & they change constantly.
My most recent problems seem to occur when I take my dog for a walk in the rain or take her to a park after a rain. Things are ok in the park until I get to the wooded areas where the trees stay wet. Then all of a sudden, I get a big lump in my throat ( I have problems swallowing but not breathing ); I get a tightness & pain under my left rib cage & my left leg goes numb. Plus I have problems with bladder control,This all occurs on the left side of my body. It goes away once I leave the park. Bizarre !!
I have been living on Benadryl for months & I know it's doing damage to my system. So I'm looking for other suggestions.
Oh , btw , I did have a seizure a few months back. Original diagnosis was MS but it was later decided that was a wrong diagnosis. But if they were wrong once ??? Can a seizure be caused by an allergic reaction to something ??
Any help ?? Sorry for the looooonnnnnggggg post ! : )
