From this study (6 days ago):
I am allergic to dust and dust mites severly
From this study (1 month ago):
sweat profusly from head neck and face all the time
From this study (1 month ago):
I have had hospitalization (2012)due to a mold allergy. I am on disability bc of this. I moved to Florida bc the cold weather of Michigan was not helping my asthma condition. (I have had asthma for 25 years. Severe allergies since childhood.) Recently my sweating and asthma has gotten worse and I use a full inhaler and full prescription of albuterol for breathing machine in less than a months time. The sweating and asthma attack seem to coincide with each other and occur a few times every hour of the day. When I went through menopause (10 yrs ago) I went through sweats every 15 minutes and that lasted for about 10 yrs, starting at age 40. Blood pressure low, cholesterol high, weight 132, height 5'2. I walk for exercise but have to have my inhaler with me. Smells, wind and changes in environment seem to exasperate my problems. I am miserable.
