Anyone have allergies and/or asthma and move somewhere and it got better? Or move somewhere that you thought it would be better but it actually got worse?

I moved from the NYC area to Northern CT. My allergies in NY were mild. After a few years in upper CT I developed asthma at 31. I thought it was weird but it happens. A friend of mine moved to phoenix last year and his allergies actually worsened. I guess it all depends on what you're allergic to but anyone have similar physical changes in moving?

The temperatures dropped to around 45F near the Kansas City metro this morning. If they were only about 13F colder allergy season would almost be over! It definitely feels more like fall. Luckily, I do not have a big problem with allergies in general.

I moved from Wisconsin to Virginia and my allergies are killing me here!!! It doesnt matter the season its always bad, especially in Spring and Fall. I even had to go on medicine when I first moved here to VA, I was suffering that bad. Its gotten a tiny bit better but not a whole lot.

Default Allergies in NYC

I moved to NYC almost 4 yrs ago. The first winter here, I was constantly sick...sore throat/cough/cough so much I give myself earaches and headaches. I was always embarrassed to say to friends I felt sick as it was all the time. Turns out every year since same thing. Basically from mid-Sept until end of Spring I am like this. Turns out I am allergic to everything under the sun and have some issue whenever I go from hot to cold or cold to hot (forgot the official name for it). I have lived in Chicago, Michigan, Phoenix and Miami besides a few places overseas and never had issues like this. I had slight allergies in Spring in Phoenix and in Miami I seemed to have lost my sense of smell.

In NYC, I had nasal drip often, even in the Summer, but in Northern CT I developed Asthma and twice the allergies. I had allergies all my life but they were more mild until I moved.

I developed this nasal drip here too! It is horrible! I have to leave my office building and take a walk outside for any type of temporary relief. Err..

My allergies have gotten better the older I've gotten. It doesn't seem to depend as much on allergies. When I initially moved from Virginia to New Jersey for school, there was a noticeable drop off in allergy flare-ups and at the time I attributed it to not being in Virginia, but then whenever I would return to Virginia over summer, I noticed that my allergies weren't acting up as much. Since then, I have lived all over the country in various climate zones (Arizona, California, Georgia, etc.) and my allergies have stayed rather constant, thankfully.

It felt really cold this morning in St. Louis as well, below 50 degrees.

I moved from Chicago to State College, PA to Bethesda, Maryland to northern CA and experienced the same allegic response to seasonal pollens. However, over the last year or so, my allergies have been worse here. Others have experienced an elevation of allergic response as well.
