I seem to be "allergic" do the most inconvenient things! I have A LOT of medication allergies, and unfortunately, the ones I can't take I need often. For example, Versed, not an option, but I have chronic recurrent dislocations, and most smaller hospitals won't use much else for sedation and end up sending you to a bigger hospital and that is just a TON of no fun. I have had to have a lot of procedures done awake, and in pain because of some of my medication issues, and it just doesn't seem fair. (
A lot of the meds used for my other dx's i can't use either b/c of allergy or adverse reactions, and all I hear is "that is Atypical" and get no help.
I swear if its not black and white, doctors can't see the color grey.
Also, I seem to go through "flares" of reactions if that is possible. One month I may react to EVERYTHING, and then for a while I don't have as many problems, and then another flare and the cycle repeats.
I really wonder if hormones can contribute to "allergies".
I seem to have to be very carefull with Toothpaste. some, espeically the sensitive stuff, will give me mouth sores and turn my mouth a whitish color. I can't use most soaps or shaving creams either. Who knew hygene could cause so much disstress!
I'm sorry this post is so random and may make no sense, I just need to share. Pitty party is officially over :)
I really feel for you guys why suffer SOOO much more than I do, you're doing Great!
