well, i passed my allergy test and i am officially allergy free. so what causes my constant congestion and ickiness? dust, dryness, the environment. none of which i can get rid of. the allergist suggested that i move to hawaii. hmpf. as positive as this is, i really did want an answer to my congestion, but i suppose not having a problem is good news. and it means that sinus rinses are the way forward.
he also checked my lungs for asthma and i scored 100% on all three measures that they test for. he said that that rarely happens, which is music to a type a personality's ears. all that running, never smoking a cigarette in my life, and not being overweight are sure paying off!
