Allergy Tests?

6 posts in this topic

hi,

 

just received my appointment for allergy tests on the 8th may.so now ive got to go through all the notes ive made over the months and try and make some sense of them. im really worried coz i just clam up when im in the docs, i do it every time even when i write notes down and take them with me.

is there something i should be asking for or saying? - other than the obvious "this is what happens when i eat such and such"

has anyone had allergy tests and been through the initial consultation? just dont want them to say i dont really need the tests done.

thanks

Hi johl,

 

I'm the same way, I have to have my printed notes when I see a doctor.

Some are annoyed but most don't mind and some compliment me.

 

I saw an allergist to see what foods were causing me my asthma.

She did the IgE skin scratch test.

 

My doctor also told me to ask her about my fibromyalgia as she's an immunologist but

she didn't know much.  She was snappy the whole time.

 

As for the testing for the Celiac, she said to do tTG and the (outdated) AGA tests.

I couldn't believe how out of date she was.

I expected a specialist to be up to date.

I learned of the DGP from reading on this site.

 

Good luck with the allergist appointment and don't be shy to bring your notes.

I went to an allergist as I was still having issues after going gluten free. she did skin tests and just started with the more likely offenders in her experience. turned out to be allergic to dairy and soy which I had suspected after doing some elimination testing on my own.

 

all in all it turned out to be just what I needed as it confirmed my feelings of what I was reacting to.

I'm seeing a gastroenterologist soon.

I've been preparing notes too but last night I dreamed I was having a consult with a gastroenterologist and I brought the wrong notes.
