I desperately need to see an allergist too! Is yours good? Are you getting the tests? Can you PM me your allergists name?
My GP didn't recommend seeing an allergist since my problem is not too serious (i.e. life threatening). She says that proper allergy tests are super extensive and expensive. If she says so, I'm inclined to believe her!

If I were to do allergy tests in the future, I would get them done over the border in France.

A few years ago, I went to an allergist/lung doctor in the North of France, just someone I found in the yellow pages. He gave me lots of tests to check the extent of my asthma (including a machine that measured the force of my exhale), lung x-rays, a dozen pokes in my forearm to test for allergies. I must have spent at least an hour in his office, even got same day results. When it came time to pay, the whole bill came up to 100 euros. (No insurance, I might add! How fantastic is that?)
