I grew up in the Memphis area and never had the first allergy problem there. I've lived in Huntsville, AL since 2002 and not only have I developed severe allergy-triggered sinus congestion, my fiancee has developed "Regional Allergy-Induced Chronic Fatigue Syndrome" as well as chronic migraines, so severe that she is actually on disability at age 22; unable to work or attend school. Our doctor has suggested we relocate to Arizona to combat the issues. If anybody happens to have lived in Huntsville and moved to Tucson, please tell me about your experience, or just anyone who has had severe allergies prior to moving to Tucson.

Thanks!

There is no "perfect" weather, sh5583 . . .

However, after more than ten years since relocating to Tucson, I am convinced we have the closest to perfect weather possible.

Good Luck!

I will add that when we visited Tucson my sinuses became clear. I'm allergic to mold. It has been very bad here in IL. We probably weren't in Tucson for 1 hour and my sinuses cleared. I didn'y need to take my usual medication either. This is one of the reasons we will be moving there.

That seems to be one of the problems here. Glad to hear yours got better! Hopefully ours will as well. I'm convinced that we both have a very unusual combination of allergies since our four cats don't seem to make a difference (and we both tested to have no pet-related allergies).

I know many people who's allergies have became much worse when moving here--Arizona. Depends on how your body responds to what's in the air.

This link to pollen count in Tucson might help. Although air quality is better I do hear the occasional "My allergies are terrible here" stories.

I had horrible allergies in Tucson. I would definitely check it out before I relocated.

According to our doctor, the allergens that are causing all of our problems (the things we've tested allergic to) are almost exclusive to the southeast, and are especially heavy in North AL/Southern-Middle TN and that they typically aren't even found west of the Mississippi. So that's why we're really wanting to hear from someone who has moved from this part of the country out to AZ. I do greatly appreciate all of the info thus far, though.

My allergies and my husbands became very bad in AZ. You could become allergic to things in this area once exposed to them. It seems people think AZ is a great place to live for allergies, but often people have a lot of problems there, too. A lot of non-native vegetation is brought there from other parts of the country. AZ used to be a good place to live for allergies, but no longer is.
