Thanks for the advice. After my testing, my doctor and I agreed that shots didn't seem to be indicated. Now I for one am of a different mind. Unfortunately, I've got a 6-week trip coming up, and my allergist doesn't like to start the shot treatment when it's going to be interrupted, so I know I'll have to wait to begin it.
I hope he can suggest something that makes me feel "safe" while I'm travelling. The Decadron shot seems to have helped a lot. I just went into the moldy part of out restroom at work and got a little snuffly and ear-stuffy, but nothing else bad is happening. I need to tell the doc about
that place, so he can put pressure on my employers to clean it up. No one else needs to get sick!
PS - Whoa! I spoke too soon. about 10 minutes after checking out that moldy room, I started getting the throat tightening. I've taken a Benadryl and am doing well. Will definitely report this to the doc and to my employer ASAP.
