hi everyone. i'm new to this forum and hope y'all can help.

i have lived in atlanta for 8 years. since i first moved here, i have suffered godawful spring allergies. as in, like having pneumonia. i have that under control with allergy medications since the 2nd year here. even when the pollen count is high, i'm pretty much fine as long as i take my medication. i am outside a lot in spring. as of about 2 years ago, i developed fall allergies, but they're not normal. i don't get nasal drip or congestion, the coughing, etc. i get horribly blocked ears, vertigo, weakness, low grade fever. these symptoms seem to come in late sept-early oct (pollen count is not high then) and last until just around halloween. it's really messing me up. i have been to a doctor and this coming season, i am hoping to get it under control by using my springtime medication combo. we think it may be caused by ragweed.

i have received a work opportunity in new orleans for the fall. i did some research and it appears that pollen is worse in new orleans. has anyone on here spent time in both cities during the months i mentioned to compare them? how is the ragweed pollen there compared to atlanta? does anyone in nola who is a transplant suffer from the symptoms mentioned above in the fall?

I've lived in both. Honestly I've had a harder time in the summer in New Orleans...but fall comes a bit later here than in Atlanta (I don't know that I've felt that the pollen is worse here, especially in the fall)
