    Just wondering if we all have put the same type of allergens into our bodies over the years with shots.Like we all had probably had the same kind of vaccines as kids

    I have allergies, and several years ago I took shots. Even after I quit the shots my allergies never came back as bad. I can't remember how long I took them, but it was over a year.

    I wow, I was just going to post the same message

    I took shots as a teen, and then again in my 30's

    My allergies are SEVERE right now and allergists keep wanting me to get the shots

    I don't know what to do - I am afraid it will make me feel worse!

    I get a shot in each arm becuase I had so much mold allergies that they could not fit them all in shot!

    I just got my allergies tested again on monday, and doc said that I went from a severe allergies to baby ones! I do feel much better now with my sinuses.

    However, there is a buiding in my school district where they had to bring in Mold specialist to clear the stuff out and they did not get rid of all of it.

    Every time I go in the bulding I get a head sinus pain after and hour.

    My shots are working well though!

    or I should say acouple decades ago.I got injections fior a yr.(could not afford it after that).The injections were just for housedust,mold,ragweed,etc. It did help immensely for yrs.But nto forever.
    I was allergic to cat/dog but the dr. refsude to treat me for my pets.He told me to get rid of them.I told him to go to hell.These allergies are hardly noticeable at all though.

    szid I would never get to maintenance. I finally quit. I was tired of being a pin cushion and haveing reactions every week. I stayed sick alot too.

    Now that I cant work any more, I dont get sick often. I guess its because I stay in the house and am not around alot of allergions.

    I have severe allergies but yet I have never sought treatment. We were hit by hurricane Rita and since then, my allergies are so bad I am ready to see an allergist. I guess I am just always thinking nothing is going to help me so I never go. Della
