Ok so I have been taking this tablet from the past three months, to control an allergy that apparently popped out of nowhere. The nose is not quite happy with me since then, and the tablets do help keep him in check, until I stop taking them…even for a day.
So as I trudged down to the doctor earlier today, seeking another round of tablets – not my favorite thing in the world, I hate taking tabs – anyways, I wondered what may be causing this to happen. Nothing material changed in these four months – I stay at the same place, eat the same stuff, and generally no material changes that could trigger this.
The doctor too ran out of ideas – she sent me to the ENT (again) and he performed a customary check and confirmed that nothing was out of order. Hmmm…do you have headaches? No. Fever – nope…Check the back of your cupboards, he then said. There may be growth of mould there. Ahem.
Change your house, he then blurted out. Ah..who ever knew an allergy could go this far!
So as it stands, I am on a new round of medication for the allergy, with a rider that if this does not work in 20 days, I would have to take an allergen test (not covered by insurance of course), which would determine the spectrum of air and food-related things that I have to stay away from. Nice.
And of course, a detailed examination of the crime scene is in order. Something potentially lurks behind the cupboards. We shall know soon!
I guess I better start my jal neti and double-down on my pranayama – health is wealth after all. Amazon, here I come!
