Dust Mite Allergy Vaccines

I have allergic conjunctivitis and on its paper I'm checked to have allergic rhinitis and I have allergies to mites and one or two other things(but maybe it's 2 species of dust mites, I'm not sure) and I'm receiving allergy vaccines for them and I still tend to shake my legs more than most people though it became worse when I started the allergy vaccines. I've been having allergy shots for 10 months. I'm on a diet between strict paleo and Sarah Ballantyne's autoimmune protocol.

Nothing changed in my allergic conjunctivitis, I'm still using lotemax, refresh, patanol and restasis at the same dose that once a doctor told me was the maximum of a treatment for allergic conjunctivitis and if I miss a few of these, the total of which is 11 eye drops a day to each eye, or move around with naked eyes when it's sunny for even 1 day my eyes start to turn red at least partly.

From what I've read, allergy vaccines continue for 3-5 years and success rates for environmental allergies are 79% among 219 members of dailystrength.org but the allergy returns for some people within a few years and I guess these results may be exaggerated. I also had a mild headache the last time I was vaccinated last thursday which I stopped by eating some frozen sourcherries. I asked about the study in the link and she said it didn't tell whether or not allergy shots were a good idea:


I'm prescribed one more of the same vaccine and I have to buy it monday or if I decide to buy it later I will have to get it prescribed again, it takes about 4 hours to go to the hospital and come back.
Do you have any comments ?

I would spring for the test. Then you'll know if you need to invest in one of these.

So, how can I clean my house and my work place enough from dust mites ? Even if I do it, I walk and run a small part between work and home for about an hour a day, if enough dust mites are present on the road, that won't be enough...

I didn't have any allergy tests other than skin tests and my blood was taken for a test which was about gluten but probably was also about other allergens but I don't know exactly what it was. I do not think the health system in my country can offer other tests and the only way for me to get them may be going to a bigger city and paying some big money to a private organisation.

If you're allergic to dust mites and you're in an environment filled with dust mites, I think the environment is your problem. (Have you had the IgE anti dust mite test?)

Lotemax is a steroid given after eye surgery. Refresh is a lubricant. Patanol is an antihistamine. Restasis increases saline production. That's a lot of shit going in your eyes when you're worried about essentially dust, imo.

Stress / anxiety alone can cause hypersensitive allergic reactions.
