I have never had real allergies before, but I always had friends with itchy eyes or sneasing ect. it didn't look that bad.
But when I got allergies I got real sick, I tried to take 1 pill instead of 2 for a few days and the resault was fever, weak body, and just super sickness, felt more like a small flu attack then allergies!!

I used to get super bad hay fever in the spring. I experienced this in California, Washington State and West Germany. I even had some episodes when I lived in Michigan. But since I've moved to South Carolina I've had no problems with it. Strange, maybe I out grew it somehow.
I used to have real problems with mosquito bites. They would swell up bad. Again, it seemed where ever I went it was the same. Then I moved here. I've been bitten up pretty thoroughly here a few times. I only itched and scratched as a normal person would. Hardly any swelling at all.
Could it be that South Carolina has kinder, gentler bugs and such?
Maybe you should relocate out to here.

I got allergies I got real sick,
I can only recommend what I do with my 30-year battle with severe arthritis – take your meds and reflect on what wimps these mostly healthy people "suffering" from pale reflections of your own disease really are.
Then appreciate that there are doubtless people with a version twice as bad as yours and man-up.
It doesn't make the pain any less, but at least it lets you take some satisfaction in your own strength in adversity.

Allergies can be serious as they weaken your immune system so that the risk of infection is higher. I recommend that you see an allergy specialist to see what you are allergic to. It may even be a form of asthma. Treatment of allergies should start before the season begins so that you can build up your resistance and tolerance levels.

Plus check food/drink out. When I started with arthritis, the doctors didn't mention food, a work colleague did – and she was right.

I'm with Garrison on this, check out food allergies as well as the standard run of plants and molds. Mold is my killer. I can deal with hayfever for the most part, I've lived with it since I was about 8 or 9 years old. Take your meds, listen to your doctor and one thing that can help a stuffy nose sometimes is a saline mist spray. I've started using it because of where I work and it's made life a LOT more bearable. Best of luck to you sir and there are others sharing your misery.

I never had allergies as a kid then developed them in my 20s. I started getting 3-4 sinus infections a year and each one would last for a month.
I take Allegra now and do the occasional sinus rinse with salt water. Haven't had a sinus infection in 4 or 5 years.

Developed Hayfever in my late 30s, mild runny nose and occaisional sneeze but eyes ithcy as hell, so much so I want to sometimes rip them out.
when I go to Sapin for holiday it stops completely.
I think some one's trying to tell me something.
