post skin prick
I had my first visit with the allergist yesterday. The initial scratch test didn't show anything, so he did the injection-under-the-skin. Based on all my symptoms, he told me that he didn't think there'd be a reaction while I was in the office and told me to keep an eye on the injection sites for 24-48 hours.
There is nothing odd about my injection sites today, but I feel like **** ! All my symptoms have come back and it's so DEPRESSING, since I'd finally kicked all this after getting rid of peanuts and soy from my diet.
I don't want to call the doctor's office because you never get to speak with the doctor and I'm not eager to speak with the nurse who did my injections. She thought I had something else wrong with me, not allergies, because "you don't have the runny nose or throat problems." Okay, I'm sure the two doctors who specialize in allergies are wrong, then! Grrr!
So, I'll call them only if I must. In the meantime, can someone tell me if these symptoms are just because of all the stuff that was injected in me? I'm feeling so discouraged!
Off to the pharmacy, to get my prescription filled. . .
