A physician's assistant with the VA (Veterans' Administration) diagnosed me with Rhinitis in 2007. Usually, I research any diagnosis I receive. However, this time I assumed it had everything to do with allergies. So, I was pleasently surprised to hear Dr. Ordon say that it has to do with smells and such. He described my experiences vividly. For example, some time around 1997 cigarette smoke became very irritating. Later, I realized that the smell of Lavender triggered a sneezing attack. I had not had these problems in the past. It's sometimes weird. Foods that I do not like, like hot sauce, I can smell them before I'm even close enough to see them. I feel like the bionic woman :) For those who are too young to comprehend, her hearing was exceptionally exceptional. I thought I could take any allergy medicine to help with my rhinitis, but Zyrtec D, though it is a controlled substance and at least $19 a box, works best. So, thank you Dr. Ordon for the clarification. Be blessed.
