Hi all,
I am in Southern Oregon and things are starting to bloom (love how it looks hate how it makes me feel).  I ran out of my Singulair and missed last night and will miss tonight since my doc's office decided that my requiered prior auth could go to the bottom of the pile of things to do and it SHOULD be handled tomorrow even though I called it in a week ago...that being said I have been having lots of PND more recently and it is getting thicker.  My chest is tightening up however on both the left and right tonsil I have small whiteish patches...well the right side is 2 white ones (smaller than the head of a pin) and the ones on the other side are more of a brownish yellow even smaller than the ones on the other side. 
Ialso have been having aches and pains all over as if I did a hard workout after not doing anything but sitting on my butt all day it hurts to lay down feels like my muscles are bruised.  That has been going on for a week after using my meds for my Crohn's disease.  Some ay what I have been suffering muscle wise might be fibro I see my doc on the 2nd for my Crohns so I will bring that up.
Any ideas to keep my asthma and allergies calm while I am without my singulair (I take it at night for asthma use to also be on cortizone type inhalers too but havent been in a while)

Is there any way to call up the doc or the office manager and explain that you need this med ASAP? I know in my doctor's office, if any prescription that has to deal with breathing, is expedited no matter what the cause is. But as for the PND, you can try gargling warm salt water frequently and use a saline nose spray. Take an otc allergy med such as Clariten or Zyrtec.
