Feeling unwell after bad hayfever

Hi

Like most people in England, I've been suffering really badly from hayfever (pollen allergies) this year - it's been going on for months now, with sneezing, itchy eyes, and a lot of mucus.

However, the sneezing seems to have died down now, and I'm not bunged up (though still producing some quite runny snot - nice!), but for the last couple of weeks I've been feeling absolutely exhausted - exhausted to the point where I've almost wanted to cry because I've felt so tired. I've also experienced dizziness, sinus headaches, and just a general feeling of being weak and unwell. My sinuses, though not blocked, feel a little swollen, and I get puffy eyes, especially in the morning - could this be an infection brought on by the bad hayfever? I know if sinuses are blocked it can cause dizziness and fatigue, but mine don't feel that blocked - I don't have a stuffed up nose - although maybe they've been damaged? I'm taking Otrivine sinusitis spray, and vitamin B12, but can anyone suggest anything, or suggest what might be wrong?

Would really appreciate it, thank you

Re: Feeling unwell after bad hayfever

Try an oral antihistamine - zyrtec is great - called cetirizine or reactine over there.

Re: Feeling unwell after bad hayfever

Go buy some saline spray and spray it in your nose. That has been a great help to me.
