My daughter has had health issues since 2006. I have taken her to every specialist in the area with no diagnosis. Her major systoms are metallic taste,ringing in ears,headaches,CHRONIC HIVES-since Nov 2006- I mean EVERY day only Zytrec controls it but has soon as I try to take her off of Zytrec the hives are back.She has other systoms but these are the main ones. She is 15 years old. I feel so helpless! Any suggestions?

  • Did they screen for heavy metal poisoning? I've heard of cases where there are heavy metals within buildings and they seed from a source creating a layer of gas that is essentially toxic. This would be the case if symptoms started shortly after you started spending time in a new house, office, or had some sort of work done on your house/office and the symptoms followed shortly after.It definitely sounds like some kind of toxicity. It could even be some kind of food intolerance: Gluten allergy, Metabolic disorder, etc.Try contacting a specialist on toxins, and try to convert your terms to medical speak as much as possible. It tends to jar peoples memory that haven't seen something like this in a while:"Migraine Tinnitus urticaria"

  • She definitely needs to be screened for heavy metal poisoning,including copper.

  • Does she use any OTC meds?If so,stop them since they can cause hives.Next,has she had any hearing loss or vertigo?Has she had an audiogram?
