Did you have skin prick testing?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

No but i have other problems. Terrible headaches , nerve damage from radiation but i have never ha d hayfever or any other allergies

Expert:  DrRussMD replied 3 years ago.
So you have not had allergy testing.
It can not be done by a blood test.
It has to be done with the skin scratch test.
Have you ever seen an immunologist?/allergist?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

No

Expert:  DrRussMD replied 3 years ago.
OK
Just because you don't have hay fever, or don't have allergies that you can identify, does not mean you don't have chronic allergies.
The scratch tests covers all sorts of things in the environment that you might not suspect, which could be causing problems.

See an allergist immunologist.

Another possibility is chronic sinus infection. This can be low grade but cause all sorts of problems. People can stay sick for years because no doctor orders a sinus CT scan, which takes about 5 minutes to do and can show if something needs to be drained to make you well.

Any doctor can order this scan.
