    Hi Ssing,

    I get it and have been told it's due to allergies and my esthestian tubes being clogged and not draining as well as they should. Everyone is different. I would check it out with your primary just to be on the safe side.

    Take care,

    Faith

    Hi Ssing,

    I found generic Zyrtec at Walmart fairly cheaply and that has helped with the allergies lately.

    Do you ever lose hearing in one ear? Almost like your underwater? This happens all the time and my doc said he thought it was an ear dysfunction. I'm having fibrofog and can't remember what he called it.

    Anyway, I was just curious.

    Take care,

    Faith

    But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint. Isaiah 40:31
