I'm 26 and my doc said my body is going through many changes still, because I think i'm getting allergies. Wat other changes is she talking about?

Can you provide more detail regarding what symptoms you are having that you think are due to allergies?

Congestion and shortness of breath can be manifestations of allergies and asthma. Fatigue can result from sleep disturbance from these symptoms. If you have uncontrolled congestion you can try over the counter cetirizine to see if it helps. Reducing irritants like tobacco smoke and perfumes/candles/air fresheners are also good first steps. Seeing an allergist for testing can be more definitive.

In brief: Not sure

After age 22 or so, growth and development are finished, so there are not many changes for about another 20 years.
Perhaps things showed up on blood tests, such as hormonal imbalances. Allergy testing can also be done on blood samples, such as checking for allergies to pollen, dust mites, animals, foods, etc... Were other results, such as infection or inflammation signs, appearing on blood tests?
