    I wonder if negative symptoms such as tiredness in the transition season connects to higher level of histamine or other body's response to it in this season. How do you deal with histamine levels? I try to avoid from nutrition which increase the histamine level.
    Does histamine has a connection to detox process? Does the immune system powerful reaction on this season means there're more toxins which remain in the bloodstream?

    Yes, it is observations like this that eventually made me tentatively conclude that ME/CFS is nothing but a mast cell activation disorder.

    Higher pollen counts, I would say. This happens in both the winter/spring and summer/fall transitions.

    OMG I was just gona post on the subject. I FIGURE IT OUT. :balloons: 100% Sure, I have had 3 relapses and everytime they happen in the fall season :eek: . I just remember everytime I got sick I went home so I can look back and they all coincide with the fall allergies which is when I react the worse!!!

    So I started to be more diligent w the nose spray (AH1) and see if I can do better this season and avoid relapse.:thumbsup:

    I am curious, what nose spray are you using?

    By the way have you see this yet: The four ME/CFS tests almost no one has ever done.

    I my experience nose spray is not enough in the fall and spring. Maybe look at other options too?

    Change in season cause to allergies to many people with unsolved conditions in the body. Allergy release histamine and it can cause muscles contraction (when the muscle shrinks) and blood vessels expansion . If at least a part of the cfs story is actually a kind of strong allergy to toxins,which are also located inside the cells,tissues so the body has stronger reactions to this in times of seasons change.

    Nice to know spray will not be enough. I will try Allegra instead / also?. How much Histamine do i need? I don't like benadryl because it dries me out.

    Of course we all respond differently, but during allergy season I need a nasal spray, an antihistamine such as Allegra (I sometimes even need to double the dose), plus nasal irrigation with saline with an electric, pulsing neti-pot type machine.
