I suffer with PATM and it is ruining my life.I cannot be social other without drinking around them so people will not sneeze,sniffle and rub their eyes.I cannot have a relationship as I cannot be close to anyone or they will react.I have turned into a loner.Going into confined spaces with people has turned into a phobia.On planes people all sneeze around me.I am in the tropics right now so I stay outside as much as I can and make sure I do not stand,sit etc where the wind will carry this airborn whatever I have to people's noses.
Things I have noticed:
1. I sweat alot from stress & menopause (in cold or warm climates)
2. due to sweating I smell (shower 2-3 times a day)
3. thirsty but really thirsty at night
4. people do not sneeze,sniffle when I drink alcohol
5. my nose gets itchy all the time
6. sometimes after drinking alcohol I am itchy,crawly all over
6. I sneeze and blow my nose every day
7. I do have a fruit smoothie with yogurt every day (is yogurt bad for our problem?)
I know it is directly associated ith my sweat which gives off whatever toxins etc as I just got back from my power walk.I stopped to talk to a couple and the wind was blowingt behind me into the couple where the woman started to violently sneeze and sneeze.I just can't stand this,what can we do????
Sweat seems like a likely release mechanism but I'm not 100% sure about it because I release this irritant gas regardless of whether I'm sweating or not. It's a tough condition to solve. I can't find any mention of it in the medical literature.
I feel we need a medical laboratory to really make some progress on solving this condition.
You might try avoiding dairy and see if it helps. I've given up sugar and diary, though I can't say it's solved my problem but giving up sugar has definitely helped with my IBS.
