NMcP, the research nurses in my GI's office tell me that's pretty common in people with IBD. I have what my allergist referred to as "non-IGE mediated responses," which basically means it looks like an allergy, it feels like an allergy, but it doesn't react to allergy tests and isn't responsive to desensitization treatments.
The mold is so high here that I had to see my primary today about
my returned chronic horrible cough. Now I'm on Singulair along with the Zyrtec, plus a good cough syrup. Maybe I'll be able to breathe tomorrow; I was working my way right back into wheezing and asthma.
