FF My body temperature raises dramatically when exposed to an MRI machine. Not uncomfortable enough to do damage, but enough to make me sweat around the area under imaging all the way through the gown and my skin is quite warm.

DD- what issues have you had with Tylenol? I ask bc I've had issues also--- when prescribed taking it nightly at the highest dose I had frightening, violent, graphic and bloody dreams.

I am curious about that. I got sick after taking Griseofulvin, which is a drug that "never" causes anything more than slight nausea. I was sick every 20 minutes for about 6 hours. The doctor assured med that it was just a coincidence and we resumed the medicine after a three week recovery period. The next time, I was sick every 5 minutes for about 12 hours and was too weak to even pick up me head.

I've also seemingly had adverse reactions to Tylenol of all things, but my reaction varies so I don't know exactly what is what.

I think I've had another reaction to medication with a headache so bad that I went to the emergency room. It might not be the medication or I might just need time to adjust to it but I just can't seem to make myself take it. Each time I have a bad reaction it seems to intensify with each use.

None of my reactions are in the anaphylactic catagory so doctors don't worry about it.

At this point, I'd rather risk a stroke than a bad reaction. Those have been less painful.

I reacted to another medicine

What we call "penicillin" is actually a class of drugs. Ampicillin is one of them. Generally people who are allergic to one penicillin drug are allergic to all of them, and often the related cephalosporins too.

A lot of these 10%ers have been "diagnosed" by their doctors as being allergic, based on reports of their patients. It's much easier for a doctor to just tell you that you're allergic to penicillin and write you a script for something else than it is to conduct allergy confirmation experiments.

Part of the perception of rising rates of allergies comes from this. Many people aren't allergic to the things they think they are allergic to.

If you're allergic (mildly- breaking out in itchy hives) to ampicillin will you also be allergic to penicillin?

Fun fact #1: 10% of Americans believe they are allergic to penicillin.

Fun fact #2: 1% of people are actually allergic to penicillin, and most are only mildly so; only 0.03% of people have a serious allergy.

This is an awesome example of people's tendency to mentally establish a causal relationship whenever two things happen in a relatively short time frame. These people would have anecdotes like "last time I took penicillin I got a terrible headache" or something.

You obviously didn't bother to check what I told you.

So anyway, you are flat out wrong. Plants and almost all animals make their own vitamin c for their own needs, and commercial Vitamin C has not been isolated in commercial quantity from plants for decades. It has been manufactured from glucose via the Reichstein process since the 1930s, although recently it has been supplanted by a bacterial fermentation process.

If you can find some evidence of vitamin C's pesticidal properties, do share. But since you have spouted nothing but bullshit, my guess is that that is more bullshit.

Got any other bullshit?
