Montana Allergy & Asthma Specialists
Allergy Shots Testimonials
Since beginning desensitization shots, I am able to spend time outdoors in the spring and summer without constant watery eyes, runny nose, and the irritability that goes with it.
Since starting allergy shots almost one year ago, I have not experienced any itchy eyes, post nasal drip, or itchy throat this spring! I even washed my dog without my usual symptoms.
As a veterinarian with adult onset of severe allergies to cats and horses, I started receiving weekly allergy injections about 2 year ago. It has changed my life. I used to be absolutely miserable, taking over the counter antihsitamines all day long while working in the animal hospital. Now my allergies are well controlled. I get injections every 2-3 weeks and take oral medications that allow me to breathe easily both day and night. Montana Allergy & Asthma Specialists turned my life around and have kept me in business.
I have been taking allergy shots for grass, weeds, and cats since 2006 and venoms since April 2008. Before I started taking allergy shots, I had re-occurring sinus infections all year. Within 20 minutes of being in a home with cats, I would be congested, have itchy eyes and chest symptoms. Now I maybe have one sinus infection a year and can sleep 2-3 nights at my sister-in-law’s home with her two cats.
During the fall of 2008, I was stung on my right foot by a wasp and had to go the ER. I had diffuse itching and hives, and my foot swelled so bad that I couldn’t walk. That winter, I was tested for venoms and found out that I am allergic to all bees and wasps in the state of Montana. I immediately began taking allergy shots for venoms. As of the summer of 2010, I was stung by a wasp, and I only had an inch size local reaction. I was thrilled! Today I continue with the venom shots. That have worked for me, and the staff at Montana Allergy and Asthma Specialists is exceptional!
