    Hives

    I have a ten year old that is suffering from chronic hives.  We have been to a specialist and they have performed gratuitous blood tests and charged us astronomically for them, but they have yet to come up with anything that could be a trigger.  They are medicating him beyond my liking with Ranitidine and Omeprazole.  They have told us to keep him on these indefinitely but I have a hard time medicating him every day without knowing the effects they can cause after long term use.  I also don’t like....

    What could be causing these symptoms?

    Every single time I stay at my in-laws within a couple hours I get a migraine and if we stay the night I always get sick. I develop a wet productive cough, chest congestion sore throat, sinus pressure, stuffy runny nose and trouble breathing / wheezing. I have a history of asthma but whenever I stay there it flares up for both my 2 year old son and I. I'm worried is mold. I don't visibly see mold in their house but I am concerned because this literally happens every time we stay there. I'm....

    itching from salt

    years ago, I started getting very itchy after having anything with salt in it.Right on top of my arms. So I avoided salt. Let's go back to when I was about 11 yrs old, I had inner ear wax and had tubes put in to drain the wax out. Recently, I went to Brasil, and on the way back to US, I had some salty food on the airplane. I could not hear when we landed, or for one month after landing. went to my ear doctor, he saw nothing wrong. I then started my regular no salt diet, and it slowly came back....

    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....

    noncontagious rash and trouble breathing

    My fiance came home from work (pest control) a couple weeks ago with a rash forming (red bumpy rash, like mass amounts of bug bites or pimples, swollen). We figured it was an allergic reaction considering what he comes in contact with on a daily (bugs, chemicals, etc). It gradually got worse, even with applications of cortizone, benedryl, and even tried aloe vera gel. The rash itches on a torturous level. Not contagious because it would have spread to me by now. A few days ago, his breathing started....

    Can a person be allergic to Salt?

    I really think I am. I've asked doctors but they kinda dismiss it. When I put myself on a special diet with no salt EVERYTHING changed. I've also read that a lack of salt can trigger an allergy-type reaction. Has anybody heard ANYTHING like this?
