I just began allergy shots on Tuesday, and have been developing laryngeal swelling many times a day since then. Been to the ER 5 times since Tuesday, and last night they reluctantly gave me a decadron (strong steroid shot). I've called my allergist, and we won't do any more shots; they're recommending drops instead.
Has anyone else ever had such a prolonged negative reaction to the shots?
Are drops truly safer for those who develop anaphylaxis or throat edema (swelling)?
I am getting a second opinion this coming Tuesday. I'd also appreciate any advice anyone has about flushing the allergens and associated antibodies from my body ASAP. I had started doing so VERY much better after being in another part of the country for 6 weeks. These issues only began with those accursed shots.
