Question: Seasonal Aleregies are DESTROYING ME


 BrentD22 - Wed Apr 27, 2005 12:31 am

I have very bad seasonal aleregies. My eyes itch so much I feel like crying. My eyes are red and swollen at all time, I sneeze constantly, I feel run down, and I am in a bad mood often due to the symptoms.

I take claritin daily and it helps some, but not 100%. I use anti-histamine eye drops, although they seem to first make my eyes itcher then later it helps them to stop itching.

Is there anything else I can do that will help me. This problem has haunted me since high school. During this time of year my grades would fall and now later into my adult years my production at work falls short. I can't wake up in the morning from the feeling of complete energy zap, then I can't sleep at night from sleeping all day. I feel disconnected from my wife and children as well as my friends.

PLEASE HELP ME!

User avatar Hi BrentD22,
Have you ever been evaluated by a physician who specializes in allergy treatment? If you have not I would suggest you do so. Over the counter products may help alleviate the symptoms but a specialist deals with allergy symptoms on a daily basis and would be able to treat you appropriately.
Sincerely,
Rntdj
