I posted the following in the Rare Diseases Forum. It disturbs me deeply that I am unable to handle anything in pill form that I swallow. So much that I'm not even going to consider the Swine Flu vaccine. I'll just stay locked in my house all winter and only come out for food. What should I tell my doctor. He keeps prescribing me stuff like nothings wrong....
Here's what's going on: Ever since I stopped taking Advair, I've become hypersensitive to any and all drugs!! Everything from Prilosec to Tagament. From vitamins to digestive enzymes. From Albuterol Sulfate (in nebulizer) to Singulair. Everything that I ingest in pill form or inhale (chemically) results in a SEVERE allergic reaction or SEVERE adverse reactions!! I've learned to combat the GERD by controlling my diet and eating more raw foods seems to do the trick. BUT my asthma really concerns me. When I last braved a nebulizer treatment with Albuterol, about an hour later I felt as if I were going to suffocate. I've ordered a Himalayan salt pipe for this and I PRAY TO GOD that I don't have any adverse reactions to it. I PRAY TO GOD that it works.
With all this being said: Can anyone tell me if this condition has a name? What could I be suffering from? Is it simply an after effect from being on Salmeterol for 3 years (Advair)? Will it disappear after a time or will I have to learn to live with this for the rest of my life?
