I suffered so terribly from about age 6 that I needed injections twice a week for over 10 years!! I would be so exhausted from the sneezing that I would need to have time off from school! It was so miserable,and in the end I required major surgery to my sinuses on 4 separate occasions,the last and most successful being in 1993! In my 20's and 30's I had to undergo another long period with injections,and now at last I do not suffer from it very often at all.I passed this on to my poor son,and it has been commented that I inherited it from my Father's dad.Being an auto-immune condition,this makes perfect sense to me. I feel very sorry for anyone who I see with hay fever as I truly know what a debilitating condition it can be!
I don't get hayfever, but I have "firsthand" experience of knowing how miserable people who do get it feel. My husband suffers every spring season and gets clogged sinuses and headaches. Once the hayfever season passes, it's like it never happened. Antihistamines help, but not completely.
Yes, and it's already started for the year. Worse in spring, and I feel I'm blowing my brains out every morning and evening. I do take pills but sometimes have to go without for a few days. due to a low budget.
I can't have nasal sprays anymore after an aggressive treatment for another condition a few years ago left me vulnerable to nose bleeds.
