I have been getting ear aches and eventually after many months of it waking me up at night, I went to the Dr and he reckons it is hay fever!
I have never had hay fever before but what he discussed makes a lot of sense.
So, my answer is probably yes to this question!
I know my daughter in law gets it terribly and is quite ill with it.
I had it very bad as a child.then I thought that I had grown out of it. Alas, this year it came back with a vengeance!!! It was extremely bad, like it was in my childhood. It is all to do with the weather, and there's not much I can do about it. Hopefully next spring won't be as bad. There was pollen everywhere this spring, so it would be hard not to get it, especially if you are prone to it, like me.
Oh Dear!!! YES!!!! I suffered so badly as a chid that I had to have injections twice a week for over ten years!! I missed a lot of days of school too, though I woud have work brought home for me to do there!! I moved from Victoria to Tropical North Queensland, and I have not suffered so badly with it ever since....
I've suffered from this for years but have to thank a girl who lived in the same street as me (when I was in primary school zonks ago) for leading me towards massive relief. I'd just come from the doctors with a script to be filled for hayfever relief and as luck would have it , here she was as a chemist in the pharmacy I went to. I mentioned to her that when I died I was concerned that if I had to be opened up there would be massive amounts of hayfever medication in me. She asked if I'd tried natural relief and suggested if I had a good health foods store to speak with someone there about trying horseradish and garlic tablets. This I did and started off with one tablet 3 times per day gradually reducing to none at all. Over a period of probably a year I was totally free of hayfever and remained that way for years. I do still occasionally still suffer from it but start taking the horseradish and garlic (now with vitamin C in them) as soon as I feel it coming on so manage to get rid of it quickly. One of the main things that sets me off (apart from pollen and grass) is cigarette smoke so avoid smokers where possible. I even move away from them if they sit next to me as the smell is in their clothing as well.
I used to take the horseradish and garlic tablets as well. It did help, but not this year, as it was so bad. Smokers also set me off. I steer clear of them ALL the time, but have to extra vigilant in hayfever season. Chinese medicine works best for me.
