SO STRANGE!!!!!! A YEAR AGO I HAD A TERRIBLE DUST MITE, DUST ALLERGIES, COULDN'T EVEN LAY DOWN ON THE BED THAT I WOULD START COUCHING, ITCHING, SNEEZING, NOSE RUNNING, NOSTRILS BEING BLOCKED, ETC, SHORT OF BREATH, THAT WAS EVERYDAY!!!!!! IT STARTED ON EARLY 2016, ALTHOUGH I HAD SOME ALLERGIES AS A CHILD, BUT ONLY GOT THEM AGAIN IN 2016 WHEN I WAS 20, I'M NOW 21!!!!!!
SO YEAH THEY DID EXAMS ON ME, BLOOD WORK SHOWED MY IGE WAS >2500 AND THAT I WAS HIGHLY ALLERGIC TO DUST MITES AND DUST, AND I HAD A NASAL ENDOSCOPY SHOW ENLARGED TURBINATES, ADENOIDS, DEVIATED SEPTUM AND PALE NASAL MUCOSA......
THEY PRESCRIBED ME A LOT OF MEDS, STEROIDS, CORTICOESTEROIDS, SPRAYS, ETC I DIDN'T TAKE ANY OF THEM, BESIDES FOR A FEW DAYS, BUT STOPPED BECAUSE OF THE SIDE EFFECT THAT SCARES ME THAT IS BUFFALO HUMP, MOON FACE AND WAIST WEIGHT GAIN, FIGURED OUT IT WOULD BE BETTER TO WAIT TO GET A SURGERY TO FIX MY SINUSES AND TAKE ALLERGIES SHOTS, DIDN'T DO ANY OF THEM YET, AND THIS YEAR 2017 MY ALLERGIES ARE GONE, I DID AND DO GET FEW SINUS PAIN HERE AND THERE BUT THAT'S IT, NO MORE NOSTRIL ITCHING, CHRONIC SNEEZING, COUGHS, SHORTNESS OF BREATH......
I WONDER WHY, I HAVEN'T DONE ANYTHING, MY BED HAS MORE DUST MITES THAN EVER......
I'M NOT COMPLAINING BUT, IT'S WEIRD......

TBH most doctors don't understand allergies at all. I had severe allergies as a child. Did immunotherapy [shots] after batteries of tests concluded I was allergic to nearly everything under the sun. Shots did not really help much. We moved from Connecticut to Houston and i still had bad allergies. I moved to L.A. for college and still had allergies though not as severe. As I aged, my body changed and many of my "allergies" disappeared entirely ~ including cats, pollens, etc However, suddenly I had become lethally allergic to string beans which I'd eaten my entire life. Would have extreme allergic reactions [giant swollen eyes, nose running like a river] until one time I went into anaphylactic shock and nearly died. It was only then I finally was able to conclude it was string beans ~ of all things~!!!It never occurred to me before since I'd eaten them all my life with no ill effects. So my body chemistry completely changed somehow. I moved from Cali to Texas ~ still no allergy problems except the dang beans. Then I decided to move to Florida. I now have the worst allergy problems I've ever had in my life. I am certain it's due to mold ~ but also may be in combination w/another type of pollen that I've never been exposed to. I don't know but I am frigging DYING w/the worst skin rash from head to toe. I look like the elephant man and have not had one good night's sleep in months since I itch 24/7. My life is utter hell. I have to move AGAIN but don't know where to go and have spent so much money moving in the past years I am going to end up in a shopping cart. All this is due to allergies. You are very lucky your allergy disappeared. Pray it stays gone.
