Hi everyone. I am new here. This is a great board. I have some questions I am hoping you can help me with.
Lots of things going on. I have very bad sinusitus Had a ct scan which showed bone spurs, deviated spetum and moderate sinusitus. I cannot breath at all through my nose. Over the last 6 months it has become unbearable. There is basically no air going through. I also have alot of pressure over my eyes... especially near my eyelids. My left eyelids seems to swell all the time lately. We adopted a kitten about 6 weeks ago. We had a cat and dog which we lost last year. I have had animals all my life and never had an allergy. Since getting this kitty my eye swells all the time. I have been having breathing problems.. which they are telling me are from acid relfux. However, I did have the breathing problems before the kitty. THe eye issue is since the kitten. I dont know what to do. I went for allergy testing. I had the scratch test done and the bloodwork. Neither showed anything. Now my allergist is saying to do a more concentrated scratch test. Does this make a difference?? I dont know where to turn. I never had given up an animal. ANd my two little girls are overjoyed with the kitten. I cant imagine taking it away from them after they lost both pets last year. I know this is a long message. I am just trying to get some advice on where to go next. Can sinusitus be causing all my problems? Can i be allergic to the cat even though test dont show it. Also will it get better as the cat gets older. A silly question but someone told me kitty hair is worse. We ANY advice you can provide wil be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance
