Hi. I was diagnosed AERD April 27, 2020.
I started having symptoms of severe skin reactions on my face in about 2018 that the dermatologist couldn’t determine cause or find a treatment.
Had had frequent rhinitis/sinus problems over the years and seemed easily susceptible to colds. Then in the fall of 2018 started with a cold, then respiratory flu, then bronchitis, and ridiculous amounts of coughing and never getting better from all the antibiotics and brief relief from prednisone while in it, but symptoms return after course. In May of 2019 they diagnose me with severe asthma at 56. ( never had before and doesn’t run in family) after months of treatment on daily inhalers and not much better went to Mayo and for another opinion and AERD was identified. I had put the ibuprofen connection together after noticing symptoms worse upon taking them. Took them for years for fibromyalgia. I also have an auto immune disease called Alopecia Areata. My question is do most people feel like crap all the time like I do? Even off aspirin. My symptoms are…
-skin rashes – constant headaches-chronic rhinitis/sinusitis-moderate asthma-total body aches and soreness- newly developed tinnitus- loss of smell and taste- weird taste in breath ( not metal)- fatigue – confusion and loss of words. Thank you for open forum of sharing info!
