Yeah, Red_34, I am on protonix for acid reflux. Haven't had any allergy tests performed. Haven't been to a doctor yet. I am trying some over the counter antihistamines. Took some Alavert D-12 today and it seemed to help some but also made me sleepy. Went and bought some more this afternoon and also some ear drops for ear aches and swimmer's ear type problems. And we just got back from a vacation at the gulf this past Saturday in which we did swim every day practically in the gulf. I think I was starting to have problems with sinus or allergies a few days before we went on our trip. I have a prescript
ion for vistaril, which is hydroxyzine. I don't notice much help out of that. I have post nasal drip, not much sneezing, nor itchy/watery eyes either. My eyes are always dry. Even have a prescript
ion nasal spray. Nasonex is one and I forgot what the other one is. The other one is a dark blue bottle with a orange pump applicator. I go through this about
4 or 5 times a year. It's miserable when I have this. Try always to buy something with something in it to relieve the sinus pressure. I had been posting regularly on the anxiety forum and on the U.C. forum. Those issues have totally gone away. Obviously the vacation did wonders for that as I had no issues at all from the time we left and have none now and we have been back from the beach since last Saturday. I just need to make sure I keep myself in check and under control. Still haven't made myself go to the doctor with this mess. Ears still ache, teeth ache, and now as of last night I had a low grade fever of 99.1! Temp now is 98.8 which is about
1.2 degrees above what my norm is. My normal body temperature every time it has been checked including in the doctor's office is around 97.6! So I figure when my temp is even at what is normal for most people at 98.6 that is fever in me. As I feel bad with it. Still using the prescript
ion nasal spray and the Loratadine 10mg and Pseudoephedrine Sulfate 240mg that is over the counter and I had to sign for it to get it.
