Ugh, Allergies...Hoping that's it though! =]

Went to the ENT Dr. last night. He seems convinced that my breathing issues are because of seasonal allergies. I'm hoping he's right. 
I was given a steroid nasal inhaler to use every morning, Singulaire for at night, and was told to take Claritin 24hour (w/o the decongestant) every morning as well. I am to follow up in 7-10 days and also get an audio hearing test done. 

On the up side, my blood pressure is down =) and I haven't felt as "crazy" as I have been. I'm still forgetful, but hopfully that will improve with the allergy management.

Here's to feeling fully like myself again soon!!! *clink*   ;]

Looking forward to some more answers.

Yay, I was able to get an appointment with an Ear Nose & Throat Dr. for this evening. I hope to get some answers about not being able to breathe correctly, my ears feeling clogged although they are perfectly clean, my throat feeling thick and my head feeling like it wants to explode at times. Hoping it's just seasonal allergies, but who knows... I'll update as soon as I know something. :)

Update - Great News!! =}

So, I am done taking Methimezole. My Dr. thinks I'm IN REMISSION!!!! :) YAY!!! I go for blood work in a month to see how I'm doing without ANY medication!!! I'm so relieved to not have to worry about making sure to take!

I have been having some issues with breathing though. My throat has been feeling tick and swollen, my ears have been either ringing or muffled and my seasonal allergies have been really bad this year. So, my Dr. referred me to an ENT Dr., I'm looking forward to being able to get an appointment. Hopefully I'll be able to get a handle on things soon. =}
