Melissa B's Story

I have a severe allergy to pine with anayphalatic reactions 4-5 times a year that require hospitalizations of 5-7 days. I have been on steriods for 4 years without a break.

Over the past 2 years I have developed skin, bone, and muscle problems; HTN, chest pain, rib fractures, edema; increase in cholesterol; increase in blood sugar; psychiatric problems including depression, anxiety, and hallucinations; sleep disorders.
