There may be other allergens or triggers to blame, so it's best to be evaluated in person by a doctor. ...Read more

Emotional/psychological health & wellness can certainly impact physical health & wellness. Either way this person could be fine, but if s/he is "forced" to retire, then it'd probably be helpful to be vigilant about his/her emotional health. ...Read more
