I have bad allergies and a high IgE level (1300). Will this wear my immune system out over time? Also can allergies cause body aches and fatigue?

In brief: Maybe

Allergy is from a skewed immune reaction to otherwise innocuous substances- usually a protein.
People with allergic asthma are more susceptible to respiratory infections for this reason. Allergy does not usually cause body aches although sleep disruption from your allergic conditions may cause body aches and fatigue. Uncontrolled asthma can cause fatigue. See an allergist.
