I will share what I learn once I have done the allergy consultation. I'm allergic to everything and that brings it's own challenges. I take no regular prescription medications and couldn't tolerate any of the breast cancer follow up drugs either. There are some pain meds I cannot take as well and I'm even allergic to……….the sun………yes, the sun. My hope is that the research into allergies and managing them will advance soon as my grown daughter shares my propensity for allergies.
The antibiotics I am using and very scary to me. I am tolerating this one now (Zyvox) but it is said to be at the top of the 'food chain' and kills MRSA and everything else (right now it's killing my stomach, sigh) but I'm managing that with probiotics as best I can. My fear and that of my doctors is that I will develop a resistance to even these antibiotics and I will have no options. I got the worst possible thing I could I guess. I tough out simple infections (or have) that require antibiotics all my life and try to get my immune system to work on it but my body certainly couldn't handle this one. I'm considering buying a large bubble and living in it – ha ha!!
