It's been a while since I dropped by. Things have been a little hectic around here to say the least.
Went for 2 PFTs and an allergy skin prick test.
My breathing was at 97% with the first PFT and it was 117% on the second. YAY!
As far as the allergies go…well.. 10 trees, 3 weeds, 1 indoor mold and 1 outdoor mold. Not allergic to my dog, cats or the Timothy hay I feed my guinea pig. YAY!
I live in the mountains in Central PA and our house almost butts up against the woods. Close enough that we're having some trees around the house cut down. I know one is a beautiful huge Red Maple tree that shades the side of my house. That's one of the ones I tested positive to. The rest are mostly Hemlock. Our neighbor will help us identify the trees on our property thankfully.
If I would have known I had tree and weed pollen allergies I would have moved out to the desert instead. Already talked to quite a few people that moved out to or near Lake Havasu because of their breathing issues.
I start allergy shots next week. They'll teach me how to stick my self. Great! I don't like other people poking me much less poke myself.
I do have a quick question. My welts were measured at 3, 4 and 5. Anyone else with similar numbers and if so what are or were your symptoms?
