So I seem to have now developed a pretty strong case of chemical and fragrance sensitivities. The smell of cologne turns me lightheaded and dizzy and even the smell of my husband's laundry can make me feel ill. Last time I went to Vienna and stayed with my stepsister, I had an 8 hour long panic attack, which I was trying to sleep off, only to discover it was triggered by fabric softener. Once we rewashed the sheets, I was fine.
I know a few people on the PPK have these, and I was wondering what you do to manage them? I've mentioned it to my pulmonologist and my GP and both have been really unhelpful.... http://www.webmd.com/allergies/features ... ult?page=2
I take Claritin and it still doesn't make it go away, which is frustrating. The antihistamine works on my seasonal allergies, but apparently not this one. I also have oral allergy syndrome, so apparently I'm just a mass of walking allergies rejecting the universe.
