Hi all, I was diagnosed about a month ago with severe allergies to essentially all environmental allergies. My doctor suggested immunology treatment and my first week of shots went well. However, I went into anaphylactic shock after my second set of shots. I got a sinus infection shortly after that (a common occurrence for me) and I was too ill for two weeks to get another shot. My doctor says that I have to feel 100% healthy in order to get further shots, because of the severity of my reaction earlier. However, I never feel very healthy, presumably bc I am constantly exposed to things that I am very allergic to. So my question is this - are some people just too generally ill to get the immunology treatment? I'm feeling very discouraged bc they were unable to give me shots the last three times I went. TIA for any advice.
