I am on daily high levels of antihistamine (45mg levociterizine) and montelukast. When i go into anaphylactic shock I have injectable clorphenamine and adreniline to bring me round and try and stop the attacks. this happens on average 3 times a week. With no known trigger.. it can happen anytime, day or night? If i had a nut allergy i would stay away from nuts.. It has been diagnosed as auto immune, and the anaphylactic clinic and gp say there is nothing else that could help?
Yes, It was done in 2011. Nothing has helped. Consultant says it is auto immune and if it was going to reverse it would have done so. I was extremely healthy until the birth of my son 6 years ago. I had pleurisy while preganant and my son was premature. These attacks started after that, with extreme joint paint in wrists then knees, urticaria, nausea, rashes all over my face, fainting, neck and face pain. All completely out of the blue, a different thing every day? And just progressed from there.
No.. My GP just said there was absolutely nothing else they could do? They had exhausted every avenue? And the surgery nurse asked if a referral to the local hospice would help? To talk with like minded people? I left the surgery in shock.. I am also attending the chronic pain team who have started the Fentynal patches. He did not give me anymore answers and said he was sorry?
This is what my diet consists of when i can eat and swallow. Unfortunately because of my oeseophageal spasms i am unable to eat frequently although i do try to puree healthy soups etc. I am based in Glasgow and cannot seem to find a functional medicine doctor in or within a 50 mile radius? Are you aware of any as I would like to proceed with this option. Anything to help
I already did. The nearest practioner to me is in London, 600 miles away. Which in my medical condition is not the easiest place to go. To clarify then, as my GP has said there is nothing he can do, my only option is to try and get to this practioner while being a single parent, having average 3 anaphylactic attacks per week amongst my other illness,s?? And there is no guarantee that they would be able to help anyway? As a single parent, the financial and health implications make that journey very difficult, nevermind any return visits needed. So in effect I have not learned anything new regarding my illness or its consequences. Thank you.
As stated in my previous answers, my GP has already stated there is NOTHING else that he or the Anaphylactic clinic can do. ALL tests have been ran. If he thought referring me to another allergy consultant would help would he not have done so? They are all based in the same place at the western infimary in Glasgow where I have attended for the past 4 years. They do not refer anywhere else and I have tried every private allergy specialist within a 40 mile radius. After a lot of money and still no answers, afetr 4 years I think its safe to say that i will have to live with this. Thank you.
