    Swollen lip for DAYS

    Ok so two weeks ago I had a root canal redone on one of my front teeth. After a few days I started having some pain. I went back to the dentist and he prescribed Amoxicillin for the infection that I now had. After a week the pain was horrendous. They prescribed me Tylenol with Codeine 325mg & Ibuprofen 800mg. After I began taking the pain meds (day one of pain meds & day two of Amoxicillin) I noticed that I was getting a skin rash and it was very itchy. Also, my upper lip began to swell.....

    Allergy shots s not painful

    Actually I hate needles but these are just small enough to prick a little allergen in skin under back. Believe me, you'll be much more alarmed when you start itching from everything you're potentially allergic too & pain from needles is basically non-existent!

    Allergy to some alcohol but not all?

    My friend has a severe allergic reaction to SOME alcoholic beverages. When he drinks Bailey's Irish Cream, Heineken beer, and Ballatore sparkling wine, he gets a stuffy nose and his throat begins to close, making it harder to breathe. He also gets red in the face--but he gets that from all alcohol. I know he isn't allergic to all alcohol because he can drink red wine, Angel's Envy bourbon, Johnny Walker Blue scotch, and Stella Artois beer without having this reaction. If it helps anything....

    Fibromyalgia and NSAID allergy

    I was diagnosed last year with fibromyalgia. I am repeatedly told to take NSAIDs for the pain and inflammation. I get hives and an upset stomach from them so am unable to. I have tried tramadol but it gives me migraines. I am sensitive to aspirin as well. Acetametaphin does not really work either. I'd be better off eating sawdust at this point. Anti-depressants thus far have made me aggressive, given me gut rot or are just not hitting the mark. Alprazolam is at a minimal daily dosage and not....

    Inflammation Wheat / Gluten / Glyphosate

    I have a severe reaction to the intake of wheat/gluten/glyphosate any one or all for argument sake. Some research has provided me information about an inflammation that can occur in the brain leading up to the symptoms of Depression Anxiety Mood Etc. While I avoid the food and all is very well, there are times where I accidentally consume something with a trace amount of 'X' which triggers from what now I know to be a 3 to 5 day episode. While I believe this is attributed to an inflammation....

    Can mold cause swollen lymph nodes?

    So I moved into a dorm room in September, and my new roommate pointed out a bad leak in our cabinets. The leak was coming down from a higher floor all the way down to mine. This took weeks to fix. Because of the extra moisture in my cabinets, there was a lot of green and white fuzzy stuff growing in there. My roommate and I determined it was mold, even though housing denies it. It has been cleaned out but continues to grow back, and both of us have been getting very sick this whole semester. I personally....
