Customer Question
Hi, I need help with...
Hi, I need help with allergic reactions. I believe I had what might be an anaphylactic reaction. It has manifested in mild symptoms in the recent past but recently has become worse. Not sure if it is indeed allergy related: tight throat in the front (where my Adam's apple would be), somewhat swollen on each sight. Feels like a vice on my throat. Cause: air pollution, I think. I'm in China and have someone hunting down Benadryl for me. I need to know if there are any other drugs that can help with this.

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
