i was in the same boat as you. i finally went to the mayo clinic who did dna testing and found that i am cyp450 deficient. cyp450 are the genomes in the liver, small intestine and kidneys that are responsible for metabolizing medication. i am deficient in all. this means that my liver does not metabolize medication so in essence, i over dose on very minute amounts of medication. so what the drs were mistaking as allergic reactions were actually over dose symptoms. you might want to discuss this with your drs. i went for 12 years getting progressively worse. i ended up not being able to take any pain meds whatsoever and no antibiotics, antihistamines, antihypertensives, etc. now, i have to take these things in very very minute amounts and they work ok. basically, if a normal person would take 500mg of say amoxicillin, i would take 25 mg and get the same affect from it. so my body only needs a very small amount to do the same that a large amount in a normal person would do. very rare but you might check it out.
I am also facing surgery and am worried about pain meds as I am allergic to most everything!! The dr. told me that they would have a Pain Dr. (specialist) see me before the operation and they would be able to give me something....
The only thing I can take is morphine...I don't break out in a rash, or itch, but it makes me feel terrible....It is quite hard to be allergic to everything!!
What a mighty God we serve! :)
