Adult onset allergies and MS

Anybody ever heard of any kind of connection between the two?  Just thinking back to when I started having allergies in my late 20's and wonder if there is any connection to my current symptoms.

Thanks!

I'm afraid I don't know the answer to this but I am giving it a bump as I know that I have become allergic or shall we say 'reactive' :-) to so many thing in the last couple of years and yes it has coincided with a worsening of my MS sx.

I've had the same thing happen as PatHC.  They say the pollen in Maine is only moderate this year, but tell that to my sinuses.  Charley

I have had allergies until I was about 50, and I worked outside with plants and pollen and have lived my life with animals.

I was diagnosed with MS this February.

Interesting that there might be a connection.

Hi,
I don't know if you speaking of seasonal allergies, But I have had an auto immune

allergy since the age of 18 (now 61).  I was supposed to out grow it  HA

Its a phyiscal allergy due to heat, stress, exercise, emotion or exersion

I usually break out with small bumps or hives    ( zyrtec helps ) I don't know    if is connected to ms or not.               Linda

I am speaking of seasonal allergies.  Can you describe what you experience with your auto immune allergy - I haven't heard of that before.

The medical term is cholinergic urtacaria.  It is a physical auto immune allergy,


Not a whole lot of people have it  It is caused by heat, sometimes cold.,exertion

emotions or exercise,  It presents as bumps on skin or hives and itches like crazy

anti-histmines are the drug used to calm it down/ hope this helps     Linda
