Allergic Rhinitis (Hay Fever) affects about 30 million people in America and has increased in prevalence over the last 25 years. Allergy medications have dominated the shelves in many pharmacies as a result of the increasing brands of antihistamines, nasal sprays and decongestants. Despite the plethora of remedies, both over the counter (OTC) and by prescription, many people continue to suffer from chronic nasal congestion and post-nasal drainage.
Twenty five years ago intranasal steroids (INS) were ushered into the market as a novel approach to treating allergic rhinitis. Nasalid (flunisolide) led the way. Vancenase (Beclomethasone) and Nasacort (Triamcinolone) nasal sprays soon followed. These sprays offered a class of topically active steroids that, unlike previous nasal steroid sprays, had minimal systemic impact.

This isn't going to be a terribly informative post today. Rather I'm going to whine and moan for a bit. If you have any chronic health condition like IBD, IBS, or any other, then I'm sure you'll get where I'm coming from and forgive my lapse in keeping a stiff upper lip just now.
So, here it goes. . .
If you're a regular reader of mine then you know I have colitis and IBS and have had to be gluten-free for the past year and a half and I was treated six years ago with radiosurgery for an Acoustic Neuroma (AN) - a benign brain tumor. Typical symptoms of an AN are hearing loss because this tumor tends to grow on the hearing nerve. Well, since I seem to be anything but typical, my tumor is on my balance nerve and the only symptom I have ever had with it is vertigo - think anything from a woozy-board-a-ship feeling to bed spins that don't stop for hours or days or week. Even though the treatment has stopped the tumor's growth I can still get bouts of wooziness or dizziness.
