Severe Allergies: I Cough Till I Throw Up From A Itchy,scratchy Throat. Eyes Tear, Nose Runs Too.

I believe i have environmental allergies as this only started when i moved to NC 3 yrs ago. My doctor has tried me on zyrtec, claritin D, and various nasal sprays but nothing has worked. He is sending me to a GI doctor and i told him that is not the problem. I had a upper GI which returned normal. I believe it is definitely allergies that i have developed since i have been here. What i want to know is should i be perscribed something like nasonex, seasonique, receive allergy shots or what should my doctor be doing. This last two months is the worse its ever been. I can no longer go out to eat because of it and i pretty much stay indoors near a toilet to throw up. I work at night and i am not really around anyone so i can run to the bathroom when i get that constant flareup. HELP ME SOMEBODY PLEASE.

Answer

Tasha... I would suggest you see an allergist. That is the most qualified kind of doctor to evaluate you for the possibility of allergies and/or asthma. The itchy throat, tearing eyes and runny nose are all definitely symptoms associated with allergies. But only a doctor can tell you for sure. If it is allergies, then an allergist is also the best person to develop a plan of treatment for you.

Good luck,
