    Interesting, Im going through bad asthma that Ive recently acquired. I have gone to Allergy/Astha specialist and they did the antibody tests. My labs showed very high IGE also and high CRP. High IGE is allergic response and CRP is inflamation but I have no idea if its the asthma or maybe LS is contributing also?

      Hi hun, it’s so frustrating and just adds to the stress not knowing what it is? 

      I’ve been suffering from Asthma since childhood but it’s all controlled now touch wood was on a brown inhaler as well. 

      Just before I was diagnosed with LS was diagnosed with tricarrdia (heart rythme errugular). As a result can’t walk far without stopping as oxygen levels drop get dizzy & heart rate goes into the dangerous level.

      This year has been complete s****y doctors don’t have a clue.

      Depending on your insurance and the Immunologist, you may or may not need to be referal but yes, the GP could give you that. I am seeing everyone for this stuff. Having other issues along with all of this stuff...keep us posted!

    If you have access to a computer, another idea is to look up increased IGE with LS, lots of antibodies in our system due to the autoimmune, it may be normal...
