So I go see an allergist this week. I had an allergy test done several, several years ago but my pcm felt an updated one was in order.
Previous results showed I was allergic to dust mites and roach feces. I went to the same doctor’s office as the previous appointment.
I expected him to do an updated test. I believe the old test results may have been archived because he didn’t mention my previous test results.
He asked what I had been dealing with and if I had rash, itching, etc.
I explained when I would hit something like dust I had an itch I couldn’t scratch.
Like an inner itch.
He asked me if I broke out in a rash, I told him, no just an inner itch that no matter what I did it didn’t resolve it.
I explained I took an allergy pill (daily) benadryl ( when I had that inner itch) and flonase.
His response after asking me AGAIN if I broke out in a rash, “Do I have mental health issues?” Then tries to say, Oh I believe you.
I was trying to keep my disapproval off my face, not sure how well that worked.
I was sent for a blood test as he said this was more accurate than the normal test they do.
I told my pcm and she asked if I wanted just to see someone else, I told her let’s wait til the blood results come back. I want to see what the results show.
