Different Kinds Of Allergies And Their Symptoms
July 21, 2009
There are several allergies present in the world happening due to different causes and with various effects on humans. The “Churg Strauss syndrome” commonly called “allergic angitis”, and “allergic granulomatosis” is blood related disarray caused due to tenderness in the blood vessels. It results in confining the normal flow of blood to the critical body tissues and organs, even leading to permanent damage.
The commonest symptom of the “Churg Strauss Syndrome” is “asthma”. However, this syndrome can also cause various other issues, which can range from rash, hay fever, gastrointestinal bleeding, and even lack of sensation, and severe pain in the feet and hands of the patient. The extensive range of the symptoms and the similarity they have to the signs of other health disarrays makes this syndrome extremely challenging to identify.
The “Churg Strauss” syndrome is incurable and uncommon. However medications can help in controlling the symptoms with potent immunosuppressant drugs and steroids. “Hypereosinophilia” is caused due to malfunction of eosinophils. Eosinophils are a kind of “white blood cells” that helps our immune system to fight against certain infections. In a normal condition human blood consists of a small percentage of the “white blood cells”. However, in this situation the cell count rises to an abnormally high count in the tissues or blood, leading to grave damage.
The symptoms of “hypereosinophilia” vastly depend on what are the affected parts in the body. Mostly the digestive tract, lungs, even the esophagus and stomach are the commonly involved areas.
The symptoms which are mostly noticed in hypereosinophilia are: fever, fatigue, extreme weight-loss, cough, night sweats, gastrointestinal bleeding, along with pain in the abdomen.This phase of the disease can exist for months and years with the indications disappearing sometimes, only to revisit at a later time.
Patients at times even experience combined symptoms of “systematic vasculitis” along with “hypereosinophilia” simultaneously. “Systematic Vasulitis” is a disease caused due to extreme inflammation or swelling in the blood vessels. Swelling of the blood vessels results in narrowing of the tracts which in turn causes reduced flow of blood to the tissues and vital organs throughout the human body, that include the heart, muscles, bones, even the minor nervous system, and the digestive tract, even the skin is affected.
This phase results in sudden loss of weight, inflamed lymph nodes, fatigue, and extreme weakness.
