About Me: Female, 27, Calgary, AB, member since Jan 2009
Love animals and science.
Proof that: 1) allergy shots cure asthma
[More] (postive lung function tests in the beginning) 2) asthma meds poision your system (worsening shortness of breath, wheezing where 14 days of prednisone was not helping) 3) food allergies can cause the same symptoms as asthma to the point of confusing a senior respiralogist and a gastroenterologist!!
Severe wheat allergy (not gluten though, another protein since I'm fine with barley and kamut) and mild dairy allergy caused 90% of my symptoms.
Crazy health path I've been on, but it looks like we have the right reason for the symptoms, now to get them to go away!!!
