I HATE ALLERGIES!!!!
 
Was on the west coast until 2 days ago. Came home. My head exploded and haven't been able to breathe. I haven't slept more than 4 hours at a time. Taking Allegra-D AND Sudafed. The shit just keeps dripping out my nose and I want to let a cat scratch my eyes out.

Can ANYONE share my pain??? :(

That's what you get for visiting west coast. :P

I hear your pain. The sheer amount of plant ejaculate that keeps hitting my eye is a bother. I've got the windows closed to prevent any more attacks.

Try some Benadryl and a hot shower. Also, prop up your head when you do sleep so you don't drown in your own snot.

criptik28 05-08-06 05:19 PM

DayQuil and NyQuil works for me - Sudafed and Benadryl also.

ben12 05-08-06 05:29 PM

Don't take Sudafed. Take Actifed, the real stuff.

I used to feel your pain until I did the shots. While a pain in the ass (weekly doctor visits for three injections for 18 months), it has been well worth it. I've cut my previous suffering by 95%, and it's been 7 years since I finished getting the shots.

Combined with Flonase

and

http://www.claritin.com/index.aspx?blnFlash=true (only I use the cheap generic Wal-Mart brand ones)

Have managed to keep my allergies at bay for a while now.

Sometimes I just need the rinse, sometimes I need all three, sometimes just the claritin helps, the triple whammy always works :)

Take B12

That one's just too easy. ;)

Starting last year my eyes have started getting really red and irritated during the spring/fall allergy seasons, and its been much worse this year. After a dozen trips to my eye doctor they finally found some allergy drops that somewhat help the redness, but we'll see how long they work this time. Guess I should be thankful its not respiratory related like most people.

On the bright side: isn't it good to know that your immune system is still working well -- even if stupidly?

I can share your pain, but not until mid-June or so....

Hey, I get the sinus congestion AND the itchy watery eyes that make you want to claw your eyes out. I just went to the doctor and was prescribed eye drops and nasal spray, and she recommened I take generic Claritin-D (I'm taking it sans-D right now).

The only problem is that every single drug store I've gone to has had a completely empty allergy section. This year is really bad for some reason.

I can't share your pain but I would be happy to rub your back, or something, if that would make you feel better.

Yup. They all look like who-did-it-and-ran.

Everyone I know who has allergies is dying.

I'm looking forward to the rain at the end of the week.

Vibiana 05-09-06 03:27 PM

My allergies this year hit in the form of horrible sinus headaches. No medicine seems to help. I am just waiting for the first frost. :(

:lol: You have a long wait ahead of you.

rabbit77 05-09-06 03:44 PM

Zyrtec and Flonase for me, and I'm good for the year. The thing that sucks is that the Zyrtec exclusivity patent doesn't expire until the end of next year. I used to get this stuff for free when I worked for the manufacturer, but now it's $40 for a month's worth.

mndtrp 05-09-06 03:49 PM

I've never had an allergy. I tell you what, you guys get something extra in life and just aren't happy.

Hmm...

*looks down*

Nope. That's not it. :(

Really? What's the difference between a sinus headache and a migraine?
Friday night, as this was all starting, i got a MASSIVE headache. I had to take a sleeping pill to knock myself out because I couldn't take it. I was almost in tears.

My five-year-old has had some major issues with allergies the last few days. The doctor wanted to admit him to the hospital but gave use seven medicines, breathing treatments, etc. and gave us 12 hours to get him better.

This morning his oxygen was better so he avoided the hospital. He has major pollen allergies and we also found out he has asthma.


He's so easygoing that we didn't know how bad he was. I think he's enjoying the extra attention and every two hour breathing treatments plus he gets to stay up later, watch TV and play video games all day.

I take Dayquil and it's been working well for me.

Silly bird. It's the new anti-meth-lab legislation that went into effect. You need to ask for Claritin-D and a lot of other common allergy medication. Just ask the pharmacist.

I'm not that dumb. ;)

They have signs saying some of the stuff is behind the counter (the stuff no one wants), but most of it is just... sold out. They're not making meth out of Claritin or eyedrops.

Trust me, when I'm suffering from allergies I'm not shy about asking where the drugs are.

Deadpool 05-10-06 12:01 PM

My pain is pretty much done unless i come across mold. When stuff first goes into bloom, that's when it the worst for me. It's been slowly going away now.
