    Pollen well high today so I'm feeling like shit.
    The normal symptoms (sneezing, itchy eyes etc.) aren't that bad but I feel really tired and weak.
    Shitty bastard pollen.

    Whoever called it in the coronavirus thread may have been correct: I seem to have had symptoms of hay fever for three days or so. It's nothing too bad, just teary eyes and a runny nose. If true, that's a first for me (I'm 46)

    That said, I've had comparable symptoms in the past from looking at computer screens for too long. Which, given the crisis, I've been doing extensively and my screens at home are very good but also hard on the eyes.
    Could be very strained eyes and consequently irritated tear canals instead? The latter connect to the nose if memory serves.

    It's actually bad AIDS and I have 4 days left, don't I?

    @JoeBlade

    Think it was me who called it. I've been getting it bad last couple of weeks. Different times of year = difference proliferation of pollens.

    My sister who had never previously suffered started to get it in her early 40s.

    'Rona hogging all the column inches though.

    This is horrible, sneezing fits, itchy eyes, feel drained of energy, tired and weak.
    Same every year but you somehow forget just how bad it is :(
    Probably not ideal to live 70m from a huge forest will those bastard trees .

    If I take an Ďall dayí type tablet (Zirtek) in the evening, do I need to wait 24 hours before I have another, or can I take one the next morning?

    It'll be fine. I double drop the fuckers anyway. Wash it down with rum. Find Zirtek are good, nice clean high and pretty effective.

    Zirtek (cetirizine) I was told by my GP you're OK with multiple. Up to 6 per day if I remember correctly (probably not all at once though)

    Everyone is different but the nasal sprays like beconase have done wonders for me compared to the tablets.

    I'd been completely fine this year until two days ago when WOOMPTH the itchy eyes and sneezing hit me like a mutha. I'd love to know which plant bukake session is responsible.

    Itís the itchy eyes that have been doing my nut in. I use a prescription-only nasal spray. Itís a medicine called Azelastine, the brand Is called Avamys, I think. Anyone struggling with the over-the-counter stuff, speak to your doc about getting a prescription-only med.

    Completely agree with this. Iím usually dying at this time of year but we were out for a long walk and picnic yesterday in the countryside and I was fine. Some itchy eyes and a few sneezes in the evening but compared to a few years ago (pre nasal sprays) Iím practically healed

    It's the grass seed, it started two days ago. It's the only one that gets me.

    The back of my throat has started its annual itching. Don't suffer with any other symptoms, but the throat thing is unbearable. I usually have it till around September.

    Both love and hate this time of year.

    Due to other medication I can't take antihistamines. So I usually live on ice-cream, lollies and cold drinks to keep it cool.

    Being in air-con helps a lot too, but don't have that luxury atm.
