    Hi,

    I had a question about your allergies - did your CFS have any effect on them? The reason I ask is because my immunologist tested me with skin and blood tests; the blood tests show high IgE (antibodies often seen with allergies)and allergy to mold/dust mites. However, I have no history of allergic symptoms (sneezing, runny nose, sinus issues,etc.). There is some theory that the TH2 immune response for some CFS people gets in overdrive and drives up IgE and signs of allergy. So I'm not sure if what I have are true allergies or part of weird changes in blood with CFS. Thanks for you help.

    Isn't that interesting? I don't have usual allergic symptoms but am considering buying covers for my bed/pillows, getting a dehumidifier, and getting rid of dust around my bedroom. I wonder if the allergies (kicked off by the CFS) perpetuate CFS by putting the immune system on further alert.
