Unable to do things, due to recurrent allergic reactions such as severe nausea, fatigue, increased heart beat, difficulty thinking, throat swell.....?

Vocal cord dysfunction vs. Idiopathic environmental intolerance: Could be worthwhile considering vocal cord dysfunction (paradoxical vocal fold movement) as a contributing factor. This condition is often acutely exacerbated by strong scents/odors. More common in females and tends to affect patients with a history of high anxiety. Might be worthwhile getting PFTs and having a laryngoscope performed. Idiopathic environmental intolerance is another consideration but this is a diagnosis of exclusion. There are a number of filters and personal wearable devices that can help the patient deal with exposures in her environment. ...Read more
