    Hayfever, killing, dying!

    Strange how this general forum is very IT related. I thought it would be more of a general discussion, unless I am in the wrong place.

    Anyway..


    Today marks the official start of my hayfever season, usually I start earlier but today I forgot to take my antihistamines and I am dying here. I am trying to work on laptops and slobbering all over the keys.

    Anyone else find today is the worst for hayfever so far?

    Anyone find it really hard to concentrate at work for all the sneezing and nasel congestion?

    Think I need to invest in some benadryll and rhinolast!

    urgh

    *sniff*

    Re: Hayfever, killing, dying!

    Finished my hayfever about a month ago

    I start with the trees at the end of Feb and am clear by the middle of May!

    For me antihistamine tablets are useless. I have Flixonase on prescription and Opticrom eye drops.

    Hope you're feeling less rough soon

    I've not had any hayfever yet, which is surprising for me.

    The Air Conditioning Unit here has a filter for pollen and junk. So no problems.

    Re: Hayfever, killing, dying!

    Lucky erm people! No air conditioning in this local authority I'm afraid

    It is boiling hot in here too but I can't open the doors or windows as that would let the pollen in! Catch 22!

    I blame my mediocre exam results when I was at school on hayfever. The exams came at the wrong time of year for me.

    Nothing worse than sitting in a boiling hot school hall with the sun blazing through the window onto your exam paper, sniffing my head off, running out of tissues and trying to answer trigonometry questions!

    Oh what fun!

    Isn't there some medical procedure available where they burn the lining of your nose off or something? Actually the receptors are in your head or something arent they? and the congestion is the narrowing of the airways or something? I dunno, all I do know is that I can hardlys see now!

    Have you tried mentioning health and safety to your line manager. Perhaps accompanied by a small fire in the office printers paper tray to prove the point?

    Re: Hayfever, killing, dying!

    I'm later than usual with my hayfever this year, but I started last week. We get free prescriptions here in Wales so I'll have to make myself a doctors appointment, but until then it's the cheap Tesco versions of hayfever tablets, or the BOGOF Zirtek.

    One-a-day just isn't enough, I'm usually on about 3!

    Re: Hayfever, killing, dying!

    I usually get hayfever really realy badly for one day a year - can't breath or see during that period. However after that I tend to find that I'm alright. I feel really sorry for people that suffer for it for a while as I absolutely hate it.

    PS - not had my day this year so dreading waking up every morning at the moment.

    I am an asthmatic who only developed hayfever a couple of years ago - today is definitely the worst day so far.
    None of the hayfever tablets work, and some make me wheeze!

    Re: Hayfever, killing, dying!

    Today is VERY bad. Yesterday I ended up on my bed with a wet towel over my face. [ The kids think its funny !! ]
    My nose is like a tap at the moment, even after the medication. Eyes not too bad, the Cromolux helps that. Its the nose that causing me the most problems at the moment. I have not been this bad for a few years.
    I can't have the injections that some people have as I am on beta blockers, so its a case of just having to try and limit what I can do.
    Was thinking of getting a mask - anyone tried the masks at all ?
