I can't believe I've found this page. I have been having the same problem for months now. Every morning when I take the train to work, people in my immediate vicinity start to sneeze, cough and rub their eyes. I am very clean, my clothes are clean and I practice good oral hygiene. At first I thought it was my perfume, so I stopped wearing perfume, but it didn't make a difference. I don't know what to do. Now it's happening at work. I am starting to get really depressed about this because I don't want to be around people. I feel like a walking allergen. I wish I were independently wealthy so I wouldn.t have to work. This is seriously affecting my self esteem and social life. I don't want to be around people. This is such a lonely condition. I haven't spoken to a doctor because I'm afraid of how crazy it sounds. May be we can help each other by listing vitals and see what we have in common.
I'm 39, Female, Black, born and raised in Brooklyn, NY. History of fibroids, had surgery to remove fibroids in 2009. Have scoliosis. Suffer from depression (it's getting worse thanks to this issue). Heavy sweater (I don't glow, I SWEAT). Over weight (but losing weight - lost 20 pounds so far). can't think of anything else right now. I hope we can find a diagnosis soon because I am at my wit's end.View Thread
Sorry I took so long to reply. I've just been feeling a little hopeless about the situation and have not been checking the site. Last dental work I had was years ago to have my wisdom teeth removed. I don't remember any severe abdominal pain, vomitting, diarrhea or sweating. I have become a heavy sweater with the last few years. Don't know if that's part of it. I aloso have IBS. The last time I lost a lot of weight was 12-13 years ago. But since then I've been gaining and trying to lose the same 20-25 pounds.
I noticed this problem I guess about 18 months ago. It seems to be worse around people who have allergies. I really think something is coming out of my pores leading to this reaction. I have become more of a recluse. I am trying to go out but the thought of it frightens me. It's gotten so bad that I was watching tv and a character rubbed his eyes and I immediattely felt anxiety. I had to remind my self it's tv. It used to be worse in the mornings and virtually none existent in the evening but no so anymore. Now it affects my family but I haven't told them anything becaus it seems nuts.View Thread
