Allergies and fatigue

Hey I was wondering if anyone who suffers from bad sinus allergies also finds themselves real tired. My sinuses have been so bad lately and nothing seems to work. I do notice that I am so FATIGUED all day. It seems to be linked to the sinuses. Anyone have any ideas on how to fight it? Thanks

Re: Allergies and fatigue

I get the same thing--It has to do w/ all the pressure in my head--it hurts a lot so I'm constantly squinting and all. I hear that Ultra Colloidral is this natural antibiotic that can stop a sinus flare up before it starts, so I need to try that and want to but as for dealing w/ the fatigue I wish I had more info! Sorry!

Re: Allergies and fatigue

Fatigue is a very common symptoms for folks with allergies/sinus problems, but particularly allergies b/c they indicate one's immune system is in hyper response mode. It is very helpful to take vitamins, particularly antioxidants.

Re: Allergies and fatigue

If the alergies affect your eyes, i.e. itchy, watery...they make you tired. Stuff affecting your eyes makes you tired. heh...but yeah, same here, sometimes when my allergies are reallly bad I just got no energy at all.

Re: Allergies and fatigue

I always assumed it was part of the equation - your immune system is working at the allergen the same as a flu virus and you feel exhausted with the flu. I haven't had much luck combating it (antihistamines stop the itch and drip, but not the fatigue), although endorphin release when exercising seems to help, as well as avoiding the allergen!

Re: Allergies and fatigue

Yes, this is my biggest problem right now. Most of my sinus problems are under control, but I feel tired a lot, even when I don't take any of the medications.

I'm hoping that immunotherapy ultimately corrects this.
