Non-Allergic Rhinitis

By Blogger November 10, 2013 - 8:45pm

I never had seasonal allergies until about ten years ago when I was sneezing constantly and rubbing my eyes more than usual. I thought cats were the culprit, as I was more exposed to them with my then boyfriend, now husband. After the full needle allergy test and not a slight allergy to cats I was told I had non-allergic rhinitis. So, do I have allergies? Do I not? This so confusing. So, what am I allergic too? Apparently, I have allergies but not the the typical things tested for. Have you even been diagnosed with this? Is this a real diagnosis?

Hi again Susan. Nice to see you here on this new group. I am now taking daily allergy medication which helps stave off my sneezing. Thankfully I don't experience side effects from the treatment. When I am not taking them, in case I forget, I can tell instantly that my allergies are going to a bear because the unexplained sneezing with no mucous continues. Once I take the meds then I am fine. Just didn't want to have to rely on medications so much as I take others for my IBS. What would be a good idea is for me to visit an allergist again since I haven't been in years and see if the result is the same. Thanks.

Hi vbegun

This is interesting!  And thanks for starting this Group!

I never had allergies until about 40 and now at times I end up sneezing due to our new cat or even when the grass is cut. Allergies can pop up at anytime - sometimes they are even induced by viruses.

It doesn't sound like you are allergic to dander but there other tests you can do. What were you told might be the possibilities?
