Allergic Rhinitis (Nasal allergy, Sinus Problems)


Migraine Headaches, Sinus Problems, Fatigue





These problems had bothered me for many years.  I went to several allergists but they were only able to offer limited relief from the sinus problems.  One allergist told me that she would not test for food allergy because nothing could be done about it.  I went to a neurologist for the migraines.  He put me on several different drugs which only worked for a short period of time.  Then he had me try the Imitrex.  It made me vomit and made the headache worse.  When I first saw Dr. Shahid, he started treating me for Candida overgrowth and did allergy tests.  Within two months, the migraine headaches were gone.  I have not had another migraine in over two years.  With the treatment for allergies, my sinus problems are much better.  I am always able to breathe through my nose now.  I also have more energy than ever before.
