Re: I am experimenting with do-it-yourself Allergy/Asthma immunizations! Instead of shots, I'm placing allergen(s) under my tongue! Wish me luck!
(Date of experiment: 12-14-2009, 12:00 PM)
Did another SLIT treatment @ 10:45am and one @ 12 noon.
When I did my first one, at 7:30am, I experienced an immediate dizziness, light-headedness, nausea, heart jumping around in my chest, "labored" breathing and slight chest pains.
What's particularly interesting is that, the treatment @ 10:45am and 12 noon has caused absolutely no immediate reaction; and the one @ 10:45 never caused a reaction?! How come? I would think that, with each treatment, my breathing problems, and other symptoms, would get worse?
I am still a little groggy, but not feeling too bad, with slight "labored" breathing, slight chest tightness, slight pressure in chest, whatever one would want to call it.
I feel like Gary Cooper in High Noon waiting for Frank Miller to arrive on the noon day train, but in my case, the train is coming in tonight, and instead of Frank Miller, it's going to be Asthma! Oh how I dread the night coming. I hope that it is not a bad one. I am keeping my fingers crossed, but, being a realist, I am also keeping the coffee pot ready for a long nights breathing discomfort.
It will be worth it if this do-it-yourself SLIT experiment works and lets me live a more normal life outside of this stupid, extremely restrictive environment that I am trapped in.
Wish me luck!
