I swear.. I feel like Im going to croak. Ive also really gotten mad at Drs lately... and let my temper fly.

I started with this in spring this time. I am allergic to nothing at all.. never was. No allergies as in I can sniff goldenrod and Im alwasy picked to clean brush because I have no allergy to poison ivy. I could eat it in a survival situation and have a feast.
Anyway, I started to get sick a few yrs ago when we moved here to Illinois.. found that as I got older I developed an allergy to mold. Okay, Southern Il is moldy, I took OTC stuff and was fine.

This yr Im in hell.. severe headaches, lymph nodes swollen and painful, a constant low grade fever that spikes up, snot galore in my head btu NONE that comes out of my nose, nosebleeds, sore throat, general freaking misery. I blew out a blod clot from a deeper sinus the other day that resembled some sort of living creature.. all it needed was a heart beat. I have had back to back eye infections every few mos due to whatever fungus this is crawling up my tear ducts.

so I try all of the OTC and herbal stuff.. no joy. I go to an ENT.. he sticks the thing up my nose into my sinuses and .. get this.. tells me to use a neti pot. I almost strangled him. Id BEEN using one just as I told him and even with silver and other concoctions. I flipped my lid, hollered, and walked out. Still got a bill though. Found a specialist and got MRIs and etc. This guy said my skull was "misaligned" and was retaining mucus in my sinuses and he wanted to : BREAK my freaking skull and realign it. My hair must have stood on end and waved around a bit because he said he could of course clean out my sinuses as a less invasive procedure. No damn way! I go to a 3rd guy and had a balloon ablation done.. WOW.. that cleaned dme out and I was feeling fantastic.. for a whole 3 weeks. Then back to hell. Ive tried z-packs and antibiotics as a last resort for obvious reasons and now that my lymph nodes are involved. NO WORKIE STILL SICKIE.

SO WTF is going on? What sinus God have I pissed off? I seriously think that I am not built to live in this part of the country. Nasty part of the country with dirty air. I took a mold kit for grins and put one in my bedroom and one on my porch. The one on my porch grew stuff I still havent gotten a result back from the place I sent it off to. You can buy em at home depot and send them to a lab.

So.. oregano oil, silver, every OTC and herbal.. accupuncture.. reg meds and balloon ablation... Im still SICK AS A DOG. Aliens HAVE landed and colonized my freaking sinuses. This fever is kicking my ass. Even the lymph nodes in my collar bone are swollen and sore. WTF?!

Anyone else sick? They say misery loves company.
Im actually hoping someone has gotten a proper diagnosis and I can at least suggest it to the new Dr Im going to in 2 weeks.. if I live that long.

You may have answered your own question in your post.......Mold is something that will really destroy people's immune systems.....Mold is very deadly if it gets out of hand......Might want to get it checked out, like in your house I mean, basement or anywhere moist......

I have been perfectly healthy in PA.....Even though we have fracking going on all over the place!! Actually so is everyone else around me, go figure........

Wow@ allergies. I've never ever had allergys until it started around 6-yrs....each year it gets worse...this year was the worst. I was told that as adults we can all of a sudden have allergy problems.

My nose keeps dripping...and I notice people around me will start sniffing to...
I've noticed this year that it's a little hard to breath sometimes...

At the beginning of this year they came out w/ a report saying that people with allergies were going to have a crappy year.

Sometimes I wonder if the " Spraying " is causing this....

A guy on YouTube made a vid on a substance he was able to collect after Chemtrailing....he too wasn't feeling well.


Also...there was an ATS post similar...
I'll try to find that and the YouTube vid
Have errands to run soon...out in the hot hot hot sun!!!

I think you may be right.. mold out of control allergy.. nasty part of the country. Funny thing is I grew up in New Orleans.. mold capital of the universe and was never sick.

Id been reading just today of the havok a mold allergy can cause your immune system and secondary infections ( eyes).. but I have NOT heard how to combat this in any real way since its completely environmental. I spent big bank to have my house completely mold treated a few months ago. The sprays and foging and inspections. I had no real mold in the house.. but had the follow up done anyway. Doesnt do much when its the darned air in this city that is killing me.

any suggestions??

On the medicines I take thing.. Im older, but the only med i take is a blood pressure pill and baby asprin. I have a hereditary thing where my blood is very very thick but have so far not HAD to take the RX thinners. I never took the garbage they want to give everyone over the age of 40 so far.

I was perfectly healthy everywhere elsse we have lived as well.. just this area seems to be flat out killing me. Its the middle of the midwest.. so I dont get it. Its the actual AIR here I think. I cant move due to buying a godawful expensive historic home and trying to settle here. The husband already said he can get a transfer anywhere.. but the housing market is crap. If that ever picks up.. I can move to a place my body likes. Until then Id like SOME way to be able to live here other than living in a bubble.

I have been healthy my whole life and I am 23. This past year something flip flopped. I have been getting sick once or twice a month. I am not allergic to anything and have been completely stuffed up this whole past year. I have not been able to smell and I get headaches and a bad cough on and off. I have never been on any medication my whole life so it is not a side effect of anything. I have been researching chemtrails on ATS and it seems plausible that the planes could be dumping something on us. Who really knows what the government has been releasing on Americans all over the country. Very strange happenings.

Maybe if you didn't put so much stuff up your nose it wouldn't be so stopped up!

All kidding aside, I feel your pain somewhat. I live in So Ill as well and my allergies have been terrible this year. I'm afraid it has lot to do with the drought and how loose all the soil has been. It's very dry and dusty which is not conducive to healthy sinuses.

I wouldn't waste time on more antibiotics. You most likely do have mold in your sinuses which accounts for something like 90% of sinus infections.

Have you tried anything like Flonase for the inflammation?

Contrails are condensation. They don't affect allergies. However, a severe drought like we're having will affect allergies. People don't always realize that you may not have had allergies a year ago or even yesterday but you can always contract them. It's just how it is for everyone.

I don't know where you live but this extreme drought we are having in the US is most likely the cause. Not water vapor.

Im thinking youre right.. and Im going to get ahold of a naturopath next week and maybe THEY can stick something up my nose to kill mold.

Seriously, if I find ANYTHING that helps this I will post it here asap because I figure Im not the only one getting ready to just crawl over to the corner and die this year due to this funky whatever it is.
I never thought chemtrails as the other poster mentioned, but I sure had considered the drought and the weird problems in the ecosystem here due to it. Been to a lake recently? I have.. and its FULL of mucusy algae. Everything is off around here.

Now Im wondering what winter will hold.. ugh. Thats the only time in the last 2 yrs Ive felt really good is in winter around here.

I feel very sorry for you...mould is extremely bad for any mucus membranes particularly the sinuses. When I lived in England we lived in a 90 yr old house that didn't have central you can imagine in winter we would have mould and i was backwards and forwards like yourself to dr's.

As soon as we moved to a drier house my sinuses improved dramatically. We went on holiday down south to one of those lil fishing villages and the apartment we were in had mould in the corners...soon as I got there I had to see a dr and get immediately this only confirmed that mould was the culprit.

We then moved out to Lincolnshire for 8 yrs where I had no problems at all and now live in a micro desert in yes i think its your surroundings in fact i'd bet ten bucks it is.

For all that you have been through a couple of things really helped relieve the back pressure and pain in my sinuses...One was to steam facially (you can use towel over your head and bowl) or you can buy a fancy face steamer...also saline wash...i hope you get some relief i really do..

Moving is a costly business naturally and if you can do that I would consider for misalignment of your skull that diagnosis sounds totally off the wall to me...def get a second opinion on that...some people have deviated septums which i have on my left side (thanks to a boyfriend punching me in my nose) but all that does is get a bit sore at times and doesn't drain can tell if you have deviated septum by lokking upwards in mirror and shining light up your nose or get someone to look for you...

Good luck and am thinking of you because i know what its like to be in constant pain and have constant headaches and its something people don't realise what its like x

If misery loves company, then we should start a club! The past week I've been in and out of ER's and prompt cares, and urget cares.

throats been closing up
Lymph nodes so swollen on the left side of my neck that its screwed with me vascularly
Ear gone deaf on the left side

I've gotten steroid shots for the throat so I can keep breathing
Massive antibiotics, orally and IM
And narcotic cocktails because of my neck and throat!

I've gotten immuno-issues since a wee visit to a sandy place a while back, and simple infections now raise sweet holy hell with me.

I suffer from epsteinn barr virus, so I feel you on the glandular fever.

I take massive doses of vitamin C, zinc, and stomach flora vitamins due to the pressure on my organs.

No real suggestions either (I was going to rant a bit, but then decided it wasn't worth it)

I do feel you on the Doctors.... Bone marrow biopsy and a cat scan, only to find out I have some rare form of mono.
Their suggestion is "Sleep a lot." --- Which is a pretty screwed up suggestion to someone who can barely get out of bed.

--- to the OP specifically: due to your sinuses being so out of whack, you could also be suffering from sleep apnea (sp)?--- this can lower your red blood cell count. Might want to look into this.

Good luck.... Maybe the second doctor, considering cracking open your skull to realign it --- maybe this might help as a final solution? I'd make sure it was a damn good doctor first though!
(And I would consider moving to a new place before that. Pretty last resort surgery in my opinion)

I have been for a few years now with Ulcerative Colitis and body aches. Might be the house I am in or allergies so I feel for you!

Cool avatar pic btw!

Maybe you are trying too much to "cure" yourself..

OTC meds, neti pots, silver, cleaning out sinuses, z-packs and other antibiotics, etc.

Your body is probably in shock.

What blood pressure med are you taking, and, how long have you been taking it?

Symptoms sound like my daughter a few years back. Every time she spent a weekend at my ex's house, she came home sick. after a couple of years of this it turns out it was in fact mold.

posted on Aug, 10 2012 @ 02:16 PM
Interesting! I would have to say no. Never get sick but maybe once every 10/15 yrs. I can even walk around them, touch, breath, etc.. Did have a problem with my club feet though, 45yrs old never had a problem and bang! One day they swelled up, ER and money and still no REAL answeres!

A year has gone by, swell but not so bad. Just reminds me on a book I read and DIS-EASE is the cause. Alot of it has to do with the WHY, most cases are in the mind that is not at EASE so it creates the DIS. Like for example, went to see the doc about a pain in my leg shooting down. Funny, laught and said it was the nerve long ago cut or touched during the herina surgery. Don't feel it anymore and was nothing able to fix it anyway. Maybe you did not want to move in the first place so its self created!

Just another IDEA to concider and ponder before spending LOTS of money! Your body WILL tell you somethings really wrong!

Nope haven't been sick for ages.. I meditate though so I am in a higher vibration... Sickness is a low vibration thing.
