Long, long ago I FINALLY got an accurate allergy test from the injections in my arm. I had probably 2 full 8.5x11 pages filled with things. I got my immunotherapy injections (3 shots a week) after that and had no problems. I recently got test again because I wanted to get back on it and they did the testing on my back. I told them I was sceptical because I'd had 3 other tests done on my back with ZERO results showing it was allergic to anything. So I get the test done and she tells me I had no reaction.
I told her I could rattle 10 things off off the top of my head that send me through the roof: Dog, dust, mold, goose down, cat, burmuda grass, etc...and she insisted the test was accurate. I respectfully told her she was completely wrong...the back tests never work on me for some reason. I'm currently having a massive issue with a dog I allowed my son to get...but she says the tests are negative.
I'm scheduled to go back for retesting next week...but I'm to the point that I insist they do the sub-Q shots (that correctly showed what I was allergic to before)...but if they're just doing the same procedure on my arm I know it will be a waste of time.
Of course my records from before had been shredded since it had been so long so I'm not sure what my next course of action should be. Their testing system does not work on me...but I have ridiculous allergies. Very frustrated at this point.View Thread
Very helpful Judy!...thank you for taking the time to respond. My allergy history is extensive and I like I said I can name a dozen things right off the top of my head. HOPEFULLY we can get this resolved this week!View Thread
It may have to do with your outside elements as well. Grass, yard, etc...that they will bring in to the house. I have issues with certain breeds more than others...and it's much worse now than at any time in my life.
I'd hope you're not letting them on the furniture or on your bed if there's an issue for you. You may just have to change how you "keep" your dogs and only allow them in a certain part of your house.View Thread
