Anyone else-- do seasonal allergies make you feel generally "sick"?

I've had the following symptoms since beginning of September, and I just want to know if anyone else gets this way just from seasonal allergies.

- Stuffy nose
- Sinus pressure
- Clear mucous
- Post nasal drip
- Light headed
- Fatigue
- Nervous/restless
- Achy joints/muscles
- General "sick" feeling but no fever

I went to the doc and tried an antibiotic for possible sinus infection, but didn't improve. Going back to do some routine blood tests, including autoimmunity and allergy RAST. This has happened to me before and it went away. IIRC it was this same time of year, so I believe it might be fall allergies. OTC allergy meds don't help much, except for Sudafed. Mild exercise makes it feel better for a little while.

Sorry to hear you're feeling lousy, but glad I am not alone

After reading several other people here mention Chlor-Trimeton, I decided to pick some up, and took it a couple hours ago. I feel remarkably better already, though a little drowsy (as expected). BUT I prefer drowsy to nervous, achy and stuffy! I like this better than benadryl. Hopefully this will get me through the season.

Yes, these are all allergy stmptoms, and it sounds like your allergies are pretty severe.

Thanks for confirming. Why have I been to two doctors that both said "No, airborne allergies cause runny nose, watery eyes and sneezing." And then they go on to tell me I have a virus or infection. Frustrating!
