Hello, I'm new here. I'm 18, and I've been diagnosed with absence seizures, ADHD, anxiety, PTSD, tourettes syndrome, and asthma. I have a seizure about every other day and the anxiety, ADHD, and PTSD make my daily life a struggle. PTSD I have from abuse from relationships and family. My tourettes is only mild, mostly tics, but sometimes I shout random words. I've been diagnosed with all these for most of my life. Any advice?
I moved in to a new house in July and since then I’ve had horrible lung issues. My asthma got much worse and I’ve been needing my emergency and steroid inhalers more. We know there is a serious mold issue in the main bathroom and planning a remodel to help in late November. Any advice on what to do for my symptoms? Is it worth bringing up to my allergist? I’ve had terrible sore throats that never go away, but I had my tonsils out this summer and assumed it was just lingering side effects. 🤷🏻♀️
Good Morning, question for my Allergy / Asthma friends. I do my best to stay indoors because the heat bothers my POTS and irritates MCAS symptoms. I’m having a terrible asthma flair right now, so I’m trying to avoid any irritation (allergic to every plant). Any advice on how to enjoy the outdoors safely or with less symptoms? I don’t usually miss being outdoors because it bothers me so much, but we just bought a house and I would love to enjoy my cute, new porch more with my fiance!
My anxiety and depression has been so extremely bad. And with Covid19 going on it’s only making it worse. I’m worried about my mom who has cancer and my husband who has liver problems I’m also worried about me because I have asthma. I’m just really scared. We have been staying home and only leaving to get essentials when we have to.
does anyone else with POTS deal with severe coughing and an asthma-type reaction after any strenuous physical activity? I had to run after my dog (another story) and have had this wheezing breathing feeling, consistent cough, and a rattling in my chest ever since. not sure if this is normal and wanted to see if anyone else on here has dealt with it? thanks! 💙
hello all. I’m new to this app and have really been struggling. I have asthma, allergies, eczema, IBS, interstitial cystitis, and endometriosis. my current symptoms are completely affecting my quality of life and I have bouts of depression because I feel so terrible all the time. I feel like I’m a total mess. I feel like my personality is changing from a bubbly, happy, outgoing person to a fatigued, emotional, withdrawn person. I just want to be happy again.
