Having autoimmune RA, fibro, I also have severe allergy reactions to Everything, even myself, for no reason it seems. I know with autoimmune our bodies are on hyper sensitive & fight mode always. But this fkn facial pressure & pain has been all day so far. Oh jeez what can i do to relieve it a little? Tried shower, meds, nose spray, neti pot, closing windows & hubby is cleaning air cleaners & house now. So tired of this stupid allergy b.s. crap. Can't function took forever to write this omg wanna shoot face off! This on top of everything else 😠

Can you heat up some water, preferably with some eucalyptus, and put a towel over your head and inhaled the steam? I have also put Vicks on a wet washcloth and microwaved it (not too hot) and put it over my nose and sinuses (be careful not to get in your eyes). I hope you find relief soon!

Oooh good ideas I'll try them Thanks!
Did sit in bathroom with steam going, helped very temporarily, but was nice to breathe clear for a min.

I started Xolair about 4 months ago and it's made a HUGE difference with allergies.

Ready to start relieving your pain?
