Hello Dr Thomas... I didn't ask my doctor for a name and I'm not due to see her again until the end of next month and that's why I asked on here. I will run it past her to see what she would call it but I wanted to hear what someone on here says because I suspect my doctor thinks it's purely psychological. I don't think it is because I tried going without the antihistamines quite optimistically and within five or ten minutes of being outside I felt terrible. With the antihistamines and antidepressants together I feel fine inside or outside and with most foods and materials.
While writing this I've just quickly googled chemical hypersensitivity syndrome and found 'Multiple Chemical Sensitivity' or MCS on Wikipedia straight away. All of the triggers mentioned affect me such as scented products, pesticides, plastics, synthetic fibres, fumes etcetera and I'm wondering if this is what you mean?? It's a recognised condition by the looks, could you have a look at it on Wikipedia for me please and tell me what you think?? It doesn't mention my particular symptoms but it's not exhaustive and it does mention psychiatric and neurological conditions and mentions anxiety and depression. If you could take a look at it please I'd really appreciate it, it fits the bill!
Well thank you. I'm in the UK but I've just been reading a UK Functional Medicine website and I've booked an appointment to see a GP in a couple of weeks time at my own GP's. My treatment works that I have now but I had to fight for it and right now I still don't think my doctors fully appreciate it. The more I read up on MCS the more it makes sense I'm 99.9% sure of this now. I should be 100% sure everything fits.
This is the reason I needed to know what it is because I've been rubbished by them so many times and it's been awkward for me to even bring this problem up with my doctors because I know what they think. MCS fits my condition down to a 'T' and it might not make any sense to you but knowing that this condition has been recognised as real including the neurological and psychiatrical symptoms means a hell of a lot to me. It's making a massive difference already knowing this though like I say you might not get that. To cut it short this has been going on for far too long!
Thanks a lot
