I have been getting allergy injections (immunotherapy) for almost three years now. Initially I was getting them every 7 days, but the last year I've been getting them about every 14 days in an attempt to slowly ween myself off. At the moment, due to the recession and being out of a job, I just don't have the money to pay out of pocket anymore and continue the ween off process (which would probably take another year).

Does anyone know through experience what exactly will happen if I just completely stop the shots? Will my orignal symptoms come back as strong as they were before I started the shots? Will I retain any of the immunity that I've built up? Is there any chance the symptoms will come back stronger than originally?

I would ask my doctor, but I would probably get a biased opinion from him, considering he obviously wants my money and would prefer me to keep going if he knows I'm making a choice.
