I am a 69 year old woman who was very healthy and energetic until 2 1/2 yrs ago. I started getting recurring viruses, chronic sinusitis, pneumonia, bronchitis and other illnesses with flu like symptoms that left me exhausted for weeks and then I would get a new virus and start over. My IgE levels were very high 23,000 at times.I was tested both by skin test and blood tests for allergy, but non showed up. I was treated for a fungus in my sinus for 1 and 1/2 years on sporanox and nasal rinses with pulimacort and CT scan shows it has cleared. I have not been really sick for 6 months, but my problem now is FATIGUE. My IgE is still high 23,000. I have a skin rash primarily on my hand that is very itchy that comes and goes periodically. Thank goodness I don't have any other symptoms, but the FATIGUE is preventing me from living my life to the fulliest.
