Brandon's Allergy Test Results
Well, the results are in...he has Vasomotor Rhinits. Basically he is allergic to nothing and everything all at once. Here is basically what it is (I googled and found this plus some comes from a handout from the doctor):

Vasomotor rhinitis is also known as non-allergenic rhinitis, because it often has the same symptoms as allergies, but has different causes. vasomotor rhinitis is believed to be caused by oversensitive or excessive blood vessels in the nasal membrane. These blood vessels contract or dilate in order to regulate mucus flow and congestion. But in the vasomotor rhinitis sufferer, oversensitive or excessive blood vessels causes an overreaction to such stimuli as changes in weather, temperature, or barometric pressure, chemical irritants such as smoke, ozone, pollution, perfumes, and aerosol sprays, psychological stress and emotional shocks, certain types of medications, alcohol, and even spicy food. Thus, while a normal person's nose may run on a very cold day, a vasomotor rhinitis sufferer's nose may start running (or go completely dry) simply by walking into a slightly colder (or slightly warmer) room, or from eating food that is slightly warmer or cooler than room temperature. While a normal person may tolerate a certain degree of cigarette smoke, the vasomotor rhinitis sufferer may experience significant discomfort from the same level of smoke, etc.

He did so AWESOME with the 54 pricks on his back. He barely flinched. He is on a nasal spray daily, xyzal daily, inhaler 2x's a day, and he is getting yet another sinus infection so he is on an antibiotic-ugh! I am a medicine dispenser. Sorry to make this so long and the update is so late. We have been so busy today. I am going to go and put my feet up!!! Thanks for the positive thoughts today! J

Maggie is now 3 years old and reflux free (knock on wood). I still check in some to see how everybody is doing :) Hugs to all!
Oh boy! I was waiting for the update, but totally understand why it's "late", lol. As we always say, at least now you know what it is. His case is why all restaurants should be smoke-free and why our center says "no smelly perfumes". Hugs Jen!

Tracey, mom to Katie diagnosed with GERD at 3 week.
Ugh! That is horrible! Poor guy! Is there any way to "control" it so that he won't experience the symptoms all the time? 54 pricks on his back and he did great! Did he get ice cream? Thoughts and prayers are with you!~Tracey

maia m - GERD. Nissen Fundoplication w/hiatal hernia repair.
Mom to
Son (10) GERD(aspiration pneumonias, apnea, tracheomalacia), Food allergy, Asthma
Daughter (6) GERD, Heart Murmur, Food Allergy, Asthma, Mold allergy
My son has this as well - allergies that are not allergies! :) We have to avoid smoke, perfumes, etc. or he has allergic symptoms - but things like Claritin, etc do not help. Sigh. I also have to be careful w/ cleaning supplies. My son reacts to air fresheners, bleach, anything stinky. He also has asthma, so we avoid much of this stuff anyway --

From what I understand it can not be cured. He was put on xyzal and a nasal spray as well as his inhaler for asthma. This will hopefully "control" the symptoms and cut down on the problems. Esp. since he also has chronic sinusitis-everything goes into a sinus infection immed.

Jen I am not sure if this may be any help to you but Kaitlyn kept getting severe sinus infections back to back. They did sx on her at 4 yrs to clean her sinus out but they still continued. We found that diary was causing the sinus infections. Since we took diary out of her diet she has not had one in over 4 years. I just wanted to pass this info on to you. ~Carla
