doggiebus--I am curious...because my fingers have always swollen a bit during the summer--even when we lived up north. However, I have noticed the past few years that with this swelling comes some tightness and a slight bit of uncomfortableness when trying to bend the fingers at the joints. I don't remember having this issue when younger--but do now--do you have this-or just the swelling?

I barely knew what allergies were until we arrived in Florida. This year I've just had a bit of sneezing, but our dogs were in terrible shape with sneezing and coughing. They were on benadryl for a week and seem much better now.

I agree.
Today seems much better though, maybe we'll get a bit of a break this week.

I just have the swelling, but I am still young...

I too suffer from allergies and finally had to go to a specialist two years ago.

BEST thing I ever did.

I do have to take (store brand of) Zyrtec every night and go and get shots once a month.

This year has been worse than last, with two sinus infections as opposed to none last year.

But the year before I started going to the allergist, I had 6 sinus infections within 4 months. That was enough for me.

I've had inhalant allergies for quite some time and have been on different meds. I finally decided I could live without them...wrong! During the pine/oak pollen season I took my Allegra. The past few days and nights I've had a bout with my sinuses to the point of taking the OTC antihistamines since I had no more Allegra. Plus my eyes are beginning to bother me. Guess it's time to get a refill of the prescription...I'm just tired of taking pills for everything!
