Question Allergy and Drowsiness/Sleepiness

Dear all,

I need your opinions. My eyes are constantly dry. My eyelids are always itchy. Every morning when I wake up, my eyelids have lots of crusty particles ( sometimes it's very sticky) and my eyes feel tired all the time despite me constantly applying natural tears. I sneeze at least 10 times a day without fail. AND I'm always very very tired or somewhat sleepy. My question is that can allergy cause drowsiness? And are my above symtoms the result of an allergy? I have depression but somehow, no matter how i sleep i'm always so tired. Are any of you experiencing such symptoms? I don't know what's wrong with me ans so far no one has been able to help me. Would appreciate any of your opinions. Tks

It sounds like you have a food or environmental allergy. I'd recommend going for allergy testing with an allergist.

Boy do I know how you feel! I've had allergies for the past 5 years. I just started taking allergy shots. They haven't really helped yet though.
I feel so tired, I can't concentrate or keep my eyes open. Today was really bad. I had to take a nap.
Here are some great links that will show you that drowsiness and allergies go hand in hand.


Have you seen an Allergist yet? If not I highly recomend it!
Take care! :-)

Allergies DO cause fatigue! I suffer from allergies and yesterday i was so fatigued i almost fell asleep in the bathtub The trick is to try to pull yourself together and DO SOMETHING, whether it be excercise or cleaning, or anything. Sometimes you can cheat and take a nap, but remind yourself that their is life going on all around you and allergies should not ruin your day. I also get achy and suffer from head pressure- which i believe makes me tired because my head feels heavy, thus creating a tired effect. Anyways good luck with you allergy symptoms and don't forget who's boss!
