Im wondering if one of the symptoms of allergies is sore throat and ear pain, also post nasal drip. Some days my eyes itch and I sneeze and other days Im fine. I keep wondering if I have strep throat it hurts so much. I've never had allergies before but the pollen is suposed to be so bad Im wondering if I do. I don't want to waste my time or money going to the doctors if someone can give me some info on allergies. All I ever read is nasal congestion, itchy/watery eyes,etc. I have different symptoms.
Does anyone else have these symptoms?
This happened to me a year ago. I have allergies. I used to take Claritin-D until I figured out it was causing severe constipation. When I stopped taking it, the sore throat and or earaches would start. You need to take both an antihistamine and a decongestant. Be careful tho, alot of them will make you sleepy.
I just wanted to let you know, your not alone, for about 4 weeks now, since the pollen started to grow and dust the world around me, I have had nasal stuffiness, sore throat, ear aches, and now, my ears are stopped up, I can hear out of one, then it switches over to the other. I had bad head aches for about 2 weeks. Yes its all allergies! My dr. gave me some allegra-D, it really helps, my daughter takes zyrtec, which helps her as well. Good luck to you
