Can this really be allergies?

Starting in February I started feeling awful. I was nauseous in the morning and shaky. Sometimes my legs and arms felt like pins and needles. I had a lose of appetite and was losing weight. I had seen an ENT and she thought it was reflux. I saw a GI and he did a scope and said everything was clear and my biopsies all came back normal. This was going on for months on and off. I went to my allergist and they did environmental tests. Found out I had allergies to most trees, grass, and weeds. They gave me nasal spray and suggested the nedi-pot (which I was already using). A friend recommended zrytec and that seemed to help.

I stopped taking it two days ago. I don't like being on medication for too long. Well, two days later I started feeling some symptoms. My ears started to clog when I inhaled. I began feeling nauseous. I took another zrytec. Things then got worse. The nausea took over and I began to actually throw up which never happened prior. I would sweat and freeze, but no fever. My legs and arms were tingling and I felt weak. I couldn't walk very long with out needing to lay down. I ended up going to the ER. They did blood work and everything came back normal. They gave me fluids and nausea medication which didn't seem to work.

I feel lost and that this is going to be ongoing. Can this be allergies? Can this be something else? I don't know what to do anymore. Please give me some suggestions.

It does sound allergy related with the symptoms as well as when they began to occur post stopping the allergy relief medication.  Ugh, I hate to say this but it appears to be an ongoing health reality for you.  However, depending on where you live, you may find some seasons in which it is less.   Hope so!

I appreciate your response. I am in Arizona where people used to move to to get away from allergies.

Yesterday, I had an headache that lasted all day. It was worse if I got up from bed and moved around.

The thing is I don't have a runny nose or any sneezing. I don't have the typical allergy symptoms.
