Any suggestions for contact wearers? My contacts are so foggy during all this it's driving me nuts. I hate glasses.

Stay away from dairy products like Milk,Ice Cream,Cheese..ETC at least for a while anyway.I know people always say milk does the body good but if you research some of the things about milk you'll change your mind. http://www.tbkfitness.com/milk.html (broken link)

If I remember correctly when cedar is bad stay away from beef, wheat, and yeast. My allergist said that during the height of cedar season if I had a steak, beer, and a roll I'd end up on a stretcher.

I'd never put two and two together but I had to test it out last year and sure enough within 20 minutes of eating some brisket my sinuses were completely clogged and I was a wreck.

When you go to the allergist they should give you a list of foods to avoid when certain allergens are active

It does get severely brutal in Austin If you look at a topographical map of Austin I'm fairly certain you'll see how much trapping of allergens the area is.

looks like it's time to see if you qualify for laser optic surgery.
Make sure you research that... weigh the pros and cons before you go.

Exactly what I was going to say. I had it done 5 years ago - best thing I ever did and totally worth the money.

I would love to do that, but I have crappy insurance! Won't cover even a dime.

My insurance didn't cover any of it either, but luckily I was still able to afford it. A lot of doctors offer financing, some with very little or no interest. Totally worth it.

No insurance covers Lasik. However, if your employer has a cafeteria plan to set aside pretax money for medical expenses, you can do that and save around 25%.

So back to the original topic since I started this thread in another direction ... does this stuff just go away?? I go to Vegas next Sat and I can't be feeling all ill!! Add in I have been having problems with Vertigo and all this stuffiness is making it act up!
