Past year new doctor diagnosed me with rheumatic fever, high strep levels, hashimodos thyroid disease, Chronic sinusitis and was put on pic line. Am currently doing allergy shots weekly.
From this study (2 weeks ago):
was off Zyrtec for a few years. Used Loritidine two years ago and no antihistamine last year. I started using Aerius in April but it caused elevated blood pressure, so I d/c'd it and switched to Certrizine (Zyrtec). A week afterwards (a week ago) I started getting sudden hot red face, most worse in the late afternoon and early evening. I have been to the allergist and tried eliminating any suspect foods, with no improvement.
From this study (4 weeks ago):
Red, painful swelling of lower leg just above ankle
