Allergist time!... UPDATE!

Well I am off to the allergist. I just pray that 1) I'm not in too much discomfort because after the allergist I'm out the rest of the night.. smart.. I know! :) and 2) that the figure out what the heck is wrong with me. I have had to be off ALL medicine for the past 5 days and my body is not happy and i have been having hives every day. This morning they are all over my hands and it hurts so bad. Jeremiah has to like constantly watch me because sometimes I start itching and don't even realize it. When the average person has an itch.. YOU ITCH IT... haha but my "normal itch" usually turns into HUGE hives the second I touch them so yah. Allergist... please let this horrible skin test reveal something. I'll update when I know what's going on. Thanks for the prayers... hopefully it's not an allergy to like bread or something. :) maybe chocolate haha and I'll use that as a weight loss excuse! :)

off I go...!


UPDATE

SO I WENT TO THE ALLERGIST AND DID THE AWFUL TEST THEY GIVE YOU.. THE DOCTOR SAID IT MIGHT BE HARD TO TELL BECAUSE I HAVE REALLY SENSITIVE SKIN. THEY DID THE TEST AND THE LADY PRICKED ME WITH A BUNCH OF STUFF AND TOLD ME I HAD TO SIT THERE FOR 15 MINUTES AND NOT TOUCH IT AT ALL...

IT WAS SO HORRIBLE. MY ARMS WERE ON FIRE AND I COULD SEE HIVES FLARING UP.... JEREMIAH WAS SWEET AND PLAYED A LITTLE GAME WITH ME TO HELP ME NOT THINK ABOUT IT.

THEY NURSES CAME BACK IN AND WERE LIKE "WOW WELL LOOKS LIKE YOU ARE ALLERGIC TO SOME THINGS" SO THEY WROTE DOWN ALL THE MEASUREMENTS OF THE HIVES AND TOLD ME THAT I WAS ALLERGIC TO OLIVE TREES, MESQUITE TREES, AND GRASSES FOR CERTAIN.

THE DOCTOR CAME BACK IN AND TOLD ME THAT HE IS DEFINITELY GOING TO GIVE ME ALLERGY MEDICINE. HE ALSO SAID THAT HE THINKS I AM ALLERGIC TO MYSELF.. HAHA! I WENT AND GOT BLOOD TEST AFTER BECAUSE HE SAID HE THINKS MY BODY IS PRODUCING A PROTEIN THAT I AM ACTUALLY ALLERGIC TOO. HOW FUNNY TO SAY THAT IM ALLERGIC TO MYSELF.

SO GOT THE BLOOD TEST DONE (I HATE NEEDLES) AND GOT 3 WEEKS WORK OF SAMPLES OF THE ALLERGY MEDICINE AND THE MEDICINE IS GREAT!! HAVENT HAD ANY HIVES (AND I HAD A LOT GOING INTO THE DOCTOR'S OFFICE) AND I'M VERY HAPPY THAT IT WASN'T ALL IN MY HEAD HAHA.

SO IT'S ALL OVER. I HAVE A FOLLOW UP APPOINTMENT SO HOPEFULLY THE MEDICINE WILL CONTINUE TO WORK :)
