do you have allergies? have you ever been to an allergist?

if so did you find that it was at all helpful? tell me about your experiences. i have had allergies all my life it seems (i am now 29) and i finally broke down and saw an allergist last week to get to the bottom of all my sneezing, and coughing and itching and food reactions.

  • I went when I was in my 20's. The batch they had were bad and wanted me to come back and re-test. After 40 in the back and 12 on my arms. There was no way I was going back to do it. I know I have seasonal allergies. I just take the over the counter stuff.

  • I had the test done and it didn't really help me. I was told by my ear nose and throat dr that I have chronic sinus infections, then my reg dr said I have allgeries. The test showed I was allergic to dust, animal dander, and some kind of tree, I think an ash.. Anyway, I'm still sneezing, stuffy, and overall feeling like crap all the time.. I don't take anything, because I have taken everything, and none of it works.
