I never even knew what seasonal allergies were until I moved to Austin in 1993. When I moved away again in 1998, my life got a lot better in the late winter/early spring. Holy cow...

Yikes! Thanks for this post. I live in the SW and use a sinus rinse 2-4 times per week. I prefer the squeeze bottle style and use the packets available at pretty much any drug store. I think sinus rinsing makes a big difference; it was recommended by two of my doctors. I don't remember the last time I had a serious sinus infection since starting to use the sinus rinse. From what I've read in this forum, I would probably have to use it 3-4 times a day in the Austin area! I wonder if my allergist can test me for the common flaura & fauna of that region?

Man, the Cedar is killing me. I had to switch from outdoor running to indoor running because I just can't take the pollen even though it was nice today temperature wise. Every time I step outside I sneeze nonstop. No more outdoor workouts until March...

I'm dying. Multiple infections. Too many courses of anti-biotics. Days off work. Cough. Can't get the drainage to stop. Need to come up with a plan.

Winter #1 here...nothing.
Winter #2 and 3 here ..... BAM!

Never had a single allergy before moving to Austin. The Cedar kills me. Hate taking all these drugs.

I have been here 11 years, it does get better I promise.

Years 2 thru 9 here kicked my ass. But it got better last year, and this year has been good. Other than today and yesterday, I haven't felt anything.

Stick it out fellow Austinites, it does get better. At least you can look forward to that.

It's only gotten worse for me on balance, after 20+, but it does vary season to season. Last season was the best ever because it was so consistently cold. I actually keep a log to vent my frustrations.

I've had it very bad the last few days. It's worse generally when the weatheris relatively warm and sunny, yet with north / northwest winds.

When it rains or is cloudy, it's better, after a day or so.
