am i being paranoid ?!

Question: Am i being paranoid ?
I have seen 3 doctors and all of them say I have anxiety and allergies, which contributes to my breahting problems. Well I just took some bendryl and I guess I was worried it'd mess up my breathing. I feel weird. :P anxiety sucks, but do you think bendryl will hurt me?? or am i just being paranoid??


Benadryl is supposed to open up your airways and let you breathe better. Just relax and don't worry so much.

It could be anxiety or allergies.

My throat periodically swells when I come in contact with pollen, mold, or dust mites. Several times I woke up in the middle of the night and couldn't breathe. I had an allergy shot the previous day. The allergist told me I had anxiety issues.

However, I decided to get a second opinion from another allergist. She told me the allergy shots were causing the start of anaphylaxis. I now carry an epi-pen and an inhaler with me.

An occasional benadryl won't hurt anything. Before I had the epi-pen and inhaler, I was taking two benadryl every hour if my throat suddenly swelled. I was pretty doped up. However, you can't take that much benadryl long-term. You need to be able to function!

What you need is TRUST. And then again the world is a ball of LIES
