Only Seasonal and Mold Allergies
I have a constantly runny nose and itchy eyes. I feel like ripping my eyes from my face. I feel like my eardrums will pop leaving me deaf. Sleep is difficult. I'm tired.
In the finished area the wall paneling and carpet must be removed before he can work on it. The ceiling has to be tested too. I'm not sure about the furniture.
Luckily we have flood insurance so a good part of the expense will be paid for but not all of it.
For my allergies :
~I bought an air purifier for my bedroom. Then I returned it when it did not help.
~I tried several antihistamines (Claritin, Allegra, Zyrtec) all helped but only a little.
~I tried Sudaphed decongestant. It seemed to help at first. But then it made me feel much worse.
Finally I saw a doctor. His prescription:
-anti-inflammatory steroid nasal spray
-keep taking zyrtec anthisamine.
-and eye drops which are not covered by my health insurance $160! I did not buy them.
--Instead I bought over the counter eye drops. They were by prescription only a few years ago.
---I also bought a better filter for my heating/cooling system.
The first night I slept well.
The second night I woke up with a severe "hangover".
Hopefully tonight will be better (without the Sudaphed decongestant tablets)
Oh well, it could be worse.
