In Reply to: I am miserable.......HELP!!!! It's allergy season !!!!! posted by Leigh on March 06, 2000 at 21:57:28:
: I never post on boards but I am desperate. It is already getting bad here where I live in the South for allergies and stuff. Pollens and the whole 9 yards. I am so miserable. Nothing OTC helps. I've tried it all.
: I can't breathe thru my nose. My head feels like it weighs 50 pounds or more. My ears are stuffy and my eyes sting and burn. I avoid going outside but due to work I have to venture out some. I just want to die at this point I feel so icky. The worst part is despite how terrible I feel, I can't sleep. Just miserable.
: Even my face and teeth hurt but the post nasal stuff is clear so I know I am not infected.
: Plus yesterday a friend of ours brought a dog over and I went to bed in bad shape last night. Mega pressure in my head and stuff.
: My head is so full feeling. I've scratched at my scalp until it burns it feels so raw.
: Sorry this is so long. I am just needing advice and to hear I am not alone in this misery.
: Oh saw a news segment tonight saying it is truely allergy season here and it will be the worst ever.
: HELP! Thanks.
You need to get into see an allergist or at the least your normal MD. There are many products on the market that can help allergy sufferers. Have you ever been tested to see just what all you are allergic too?? This would also be a worthwhile recommendation. Also in regard to sinus infection please note that sinusitis does not necessisarilly mean colored nasal drainage. Sometimes you can have sinusitis and have clear nasal drainage. This I know from personal experience. Good Luck
