My husband had what we thought was a severe allergice reaction to taking naproxyn in July. His nose started burning, his throat was tight and he could not swallow water-he could breathe ok-he was sweating badly and very weak. He stopped taking naproxyn right away. about two weeks later, same thing happened while driving to work, he went to the er, they checked his heart-no heart attack-said it was allergies and put him on zyrtec. the episodes started happening daily, starts with nose or throat burning, can happen when he blows his nose, happens when he is at work and gets into dust or musty areas. Also right side of face and lips now get numb when he has them. he has had a ct scan and xrays of sinuses, throat xrays, found nothing irregular. He does have a diviated septum (sp), which the ent did not think was related to this. We have charted all attacks for 3 weeks, went back to the ent, he said he had no idea, there was nothing about the attacks that pointed to a food allergy, said he couldn't help us and had no idea who to refer us to. we are waiting for allergy testing to be done next week by a different ent. As I was looking at symptoms online I found this website and thought I would give it a try to see if anyone had any ideas. thank you.
