I see the pollen count is at 10.6 today. My eyes look like I've cried for days. But, yesterday I was priming the interior of an old house, and, the window blinds fell on my nose giving me a slight black eye (LOL). Needless to say, I look really lovely right now.

I'm hoping it is about the pollen count today and/or the window blinds attacking me, and not that the new rental house has some kind of crazy mold.

Anyone have bad allergies today ?

I don't suffer that much with allergies in general, but yesterday and today my eyes have been VERY watery. Hopefully that's all it is!

Is it a newly acquired rental house that was sprayed for bugs before you moved in?

I know I'm allergic to that -- when I go into some areas where I work.

Today was very bad for me and another friend of mine - we are both known to be allergic to almost all major tree pollens. Today was my eyes especially - not so much throat/chest/sinus but eyes were VERY bad.

Sorry you guys share my pain! Though I am relieved it may not be the rental house

(they did spray for bugs...between that, the paint primer fumes, the blinds punch in the nose and allergies...I need a do over...)

I woke up one morning at 7AM and to start off my day I sneezed 12 times in a row! Many many people are suffering, and surely I am. I can only get through the day with a pill or two and a large box of tissues..haha.

To anyone with seasonal allergies, I would recommend going to an allergist. I was always the tough guy, figuring no need to go to the doctor. I would take Dimetapp and a couple other meds and still be sneezing like crazy but it didn't seem to bad. Truth is i was miserable and made it miserable for people around me with the runny nose, sneezing and mood swings from the medication.

Then they took PPA out of the allergy drugs and it got a little worse (but less chance of a stroke - yay) and my wife "made" me go to an allergist. Got the allergy tests done and found I was allergic to a few grasses and a few trees including Oak. Oops, looks like I'm living in the wrong place then. Every year I so looked forward to memorial day as that's when it usually got better.

He put me on Rhinocort nasal spray and holy crap what a difference. Instead of figuring reasons to stay inside I can do whatever and I feel 99% like I have no allergies at all. If I know I'll be big time out in it like lawn mowing day or I'm playing golf, I'll take an Allavert too that morning and go about my day. Some drugs work better for certain allergens and people so the doctor can advise and help you find the right thing. Rhinorcort is not on my insurance formulary so I have to pay the $80 out of pocket, but it would be worth it at $500.
