    Seek professional help.

    And so you continue to say you administered these shots yourself?

    Something is not adding up once again! Malpractice, proper shot administration? You did it four times for a total of at least 6 months to a year to determine its effectiveness? Meaning you wasted 4 x 9 months on average or 3 years? Very strange indeed.

    Hmmmm, this might be an example of posts gone wild!
    Anyone got anything to say about antihistamines?!

    I use Clarytine. I have no allergies but have food intolerances and my allergist has recommended that i take them if i am going to break my diet and eat foods high in histamine.

    I will ask him if when i see him in two weeks about if taking them long term causes an increase in histamine receptors.

    A wee bit wacky,

    Will you take both H1 and H2?

    I take Reactine and Zantac. Zantac helps alot for things that occur with my gut (including flushing).

    Just a bit.

    The allergist only suggested H1 and i didn't ask about H2's. So i'll try to remember to ask him about that too. I have tried H2's as well (zantac) and i'm not sure if taking them with H1 helped more than H1 alone. I might give them another burl, just for fun!

    Didn't they find recently that H2 don't just effect the gut but skin things as well..is that the effect you've noticed Twickle Purple?

    It is. The gut is such a mysterious thing! I really believe a lot of our skins issues are gut issues too.

    Remember that flushing article? That was a real eye opener for me. For me it tied my facial pain to my flushing.

    I have learned to really 'listen' to my gut. At the beginnings of a 'tug' (stomach tenseness) I know to take a Zantac. It's weird that it affects "mood" too. I'll have a tummy tug and a sudden vague anxiety. I know to take a zantac, and it works really quick. The transient anxiety triggers a flush too. There is no basis for anxiety in the mental state I'm in, it's allergy. I use the no name brand now, Zantac is just too expensive.

    Before breakfast I take a reactine and green benadryl, with breakfast I take a zantac. Then I take it at night again with my Neurontin. When my skin really acts up I resort to the hydroxyzine. I don't have to take it as much as I did during the summer. But nothings kills the itch better for me, and that means less steroid.

    I really do think the combination works better for me than either alone.
