Post sore throat and ear ache

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?

Iret,
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
