how old are you
any medical problems or medications
37, systemic CRPS
fentanyl, oxycodone, also diazapam at night
did you see an allergist?
do agree this is all because of an allergy?
Well, it is possible
and I would ask to see an allergist
but with the racing heart and etc, I would ask to be tested for thyroid disease
and an EKG and holter monitor (extended EKG) to see what is going on
How or rather what allergy could cause tinnitus, racing heart, shortness of breath, pain, sore throat and blocked nose/sinuses etc
allergy can cause sore throat and tinnitus by blocking the eustachian tubes which connect from ear to mouth
I did ask to be referred but told it could be environmental
but with the racing heart, I think that you need to be tested for thyroid disaes
however as I am in a different country than before, find it hard to believe it is.
I think that you need to see an allergist and get the EKG and thyroid test
what about having to blow my nose all the time, I cannot breathe through it and produce more secretions than I ever have even with a cold.
that can be from allergies
can you clarify what the allergy could be as it can't be environmental.
food, pet, clothing ANYTHING
it is getting worse, esp the shortness of breath and wheezing.
you need to see an allergist
Why would an allergy appear suddenly?
you may need to take daily medication
you said you have had this for months
as well, their severity builds up over the years
the tinnitus and sore throat, tight chest, sinus etc all 1 year ago
You need to see an allergist.
you may be allergic to something that you are not aware of
they can cause all of these symptoms
that is my first hunch
but you should also be checked for thyroid disease and get an EKG
So not being able to breath/get enough oxygen is not serious. The pain in my upper back also from allergy?
in the meantime, you can buy over the counter zyrtec
I am not saying it isn't serious
I am trying to direct you to the appropriate specialist
they may need to give you certain medications
wheezing can be from asthma or allergies as well
Yes but I need to be reffered to see a specialist by my doctor
racing heart from allergy too?
As I said before, you should get your thyroid tested and an EKG
I do not think that is related
the doctor says it is likely to be dust mites but i do not understand how that can cause so much pain and such a raw burning throat
pain in upper back btw
the dizzyness also from allergy?
I feel like I am telling you the same thing over and over again
I would like detail, allergy could be anything and I have just paid again to see the dr to be told again that despite being in an entirely different country it is environmental. I do not have the means to see anyone else after talking to you so unless you can give advice it is not useful.
You said it is not serious so I do not need to go to hospital correct? Seeing an allergist is not an option. Can you help me reduce the symptoms?
You can take over the counter zyrtec
that will help for allergies
if that does not make you feel better then you need to go to the hospital
and get an EKG and a chest xray
I can't see an answer for the upper back pain?
for back pain you can take motrin (ibuprofen) or tylenol
can allergy cause pain in the lungs?
if it is very irritating and causing spasms of the airpassages then yes
I have CRPS I don't think those meds will have any effect.
there is no cough at all.
so no irritation like that.
if you need a stronger medication, then you need to go to the hospital so they can give you
but that is the best you can do without seeing a physician
just very sharp pain in upper back.
I am on the top dose of the strongest opioid there is.
ok, then you should go to the hospital and get a chest xray
Just seen one, today. That's my money for the month.
chest x-ray, how is that related to allergy?
Cannot work due to disability/CRPS so very expensive to see doctors/specialists. The only case it is possible is emergency.
then go to emergency
Can you clarify about the x-ray?
xray will look for infection
or collapsed lung
What shall I say you - the doctor - have said to emergency? Because if you feel you are repeating yourself, this is my 5th attempt at resolving what are pretty scary symptoms.
If you cannot get a chest xray and you cannot afford it unless you go to the emergency, then you need to go to emergency
OK but doctors do not like being told what to do, I wanted to know what symptoms I should say to A&E as do not want to have all that additional pain from getting to hospital only to return without an x-ray.
If you accept my answer I will tellyou
what do you mean accept?
give positive feedback
because I have been working with you for over 30 minutes
otherwise I am going to opt out
pressed it is it not showing?
sorry 1st time pressed happy faace
Oh ok it's saying it will close the chat,
correct and then I will answer that final questin
I can write something after
