Did a total of six SLIT treatments (experiments) today. The last few treatments caused no increased symptoms. I don't know why, or what that means?
I just reread an article on SLIT where it states that the Medical Community, at this point, does not know how many treatments to do, or how much allegen to use, or how frequently to give the SLIT treatments, etc., etc., etc., but it has been determined definitely that SLIT immunotherapy is effective at lessening Allergy Sensitivity, and is safer to use than SCIT (shots). That is like music to my ears.
So far today, I am still experiencing some tightness in my chest and some slight "labored" breathing, slight but infrequent Chest Pains, and some dizziness and lightheadedness.
I had a confusing reaction to going outside into my grass-filled yard to take out the garbage. I suffered from increased breathing problems, which have since eased. I would have to guess that the 6 SLIT treatments today have temporarily sensitized me to whatever is outside, including, of course, Grass!
Now to make it through a long, lonely, uncomfortable night. I am really dreading the night, as I really expect more problems breathing and difficulty sleeping.
But...... if it works, then it is all good, and a little discomfort for one night will be a small price to pay for improved health over the long term.
If I don't post again until tomorrow morning, it will mean that I was able to get to sleep, otherwise I will be a very unhappy and uncomfortable SLIT experimenter.
Well.......Wish me luck..... lots of luck, I'll need it!
