Reading Dr Sacks response on alergies was another revelation. I am doing very well with my recovery. Well enough that I have planned to ski with my family in 4 weeks. In the past two days my night time nasal congestion has suddenly reappeared and one of my eyes has gotten red and teary in the morning. Neither of these are new issues. The congestion appeared 7-10 years ago and even after years of immuno-thereapy injections alergies it didnt improve and got to the point where not long before my back symptoms stared I almost has sinus surgery. Funny that i noticed at the height of my back symptoms i didnt have nasal congestion at night. the red eye was always diagnosed on conjunctivitis but sometimes would take months to go away then just disappear over night for no reason. At one point I was trying all kinds of different contacts to correct the tearing. Funny now I have lost most of my concerns about the back and leg symptoms and they are very on a clear path of diminishing to virtually nothing that these two issues poppped up. Sneaky TMS!
