Hi all, I'm the new guy on the block, I'm curious if you all suffer the same things, and whatn you have found that helps...OK, I never had asthma or allergies until 2 years ago,I got a chest cold,,,,,and the asthma and allergies made themselves at home.......I went to the doc, and he said he didnt know what I'm allergic symptoms are.......ringing ears, sometimes  slight pain, feels like altitude change pressure, decrease in lung function and they ache sometimes, red watery eyes and they have a shooting pain sometimes, sneezing sometimes, slight headache..almost feels like I pulled a drunk and have a slight this soup of misery also sets my anxiey off sometimes........I never feel good anymore, always feel like I have a nasty cold, stuffy nose with clear discharge......this crap has really changed my life for the worse.......anyone else in my boat?

I have adult onset severe asthma, which I have had since 2001.  I am 56 years old.  I was also diagnosed with epilepsy last summer.  One thing in your post that jumps out at me is about your ears ringing and the anxiety level.  Not long after I started having the seizures, I was also diagnosed with tinnitus, not related to the seizures.  The ringing in my ears does cause frustration which causes anxiety.  When my ears are ringing while I am trying to concentrate on something while there is something else going on in the room, which could be music, people talking, etc., ths makes me want to scream.  I see an allergist for my asthma.  From what I read, most asthma patients do better who see an allergist.  You would see an ENT for tinnitus.  I hope I haven't confused you more.
