well, i was so excited for my allergist appointment today because i wanted to get IGE and IGG food allergy/sensitivity testing.
i told her about the IGG sensitivity forms i ordered online and she basically said there's no evidence to support any of that testing. the forms need to be signed by a doctor and the bloodwork ordered for me to get it. well, i couldn't get her to approve it. so....
i asked if she would at least do IGE allergy testing which is standard in allergy offices. she said since i didn't have shortness of breath or wheezing while eating certain foods that i wasn't allergic to anything.
obviously, i'm annoyed because i have hives everyday and obviously digestive problems. she told me it's chronic uticaria and dermatitis or some other D word.
for the people who have gotten these tests, where did you go? i've asked 3 GI doctors to approve them and all of them say food doesn't matter.
regardless, she gave me lots of meds to take- zyrtec, allegra, zantac, and doxepin. i'm super excited to try the doxepin since she said it's 700x more potent than benadryl. benadryl wears off so fast for me so hopefully this stuff will knock me out for a good 12 hours and not make me itch.
