Honestly what does it think having hay fever like sneezing in November!,,

PoppyWearer Sat 10-Nov-12 22:31:10

Leave the bastard.

DoodleAlley Sat 10-Nov-12 22:32:40

But then how would I smell....?!

AgentZigzag Sat 10-Nov-12 22:34:52

'But then how would I smell....?! '

Awful?

grin

DoodleAlley Sat 10-Nov-12 22:35:32

I mean what on earth can I be reacting to?!

Pregnant so can't even take my usual hay fever remedies!

DoodleAlley Sat 10-Nov-12 22:36:00

Thanks agent thought no one was going to pick that one up!

AgentZigzag Sat 10-Nov-12 22:38:11

Have you had any antihistamines?

DoodleAlley Sat 10-Nov-12 22:39:08

No agent I'm pg do thought they were out of bounds

DoodleAlley Sat 10-Nov-12 22:39:45

Honestly even my typing sounds like I'm blocked up.

Do = so

DoodleAlley Sat 10-Nov-12 22:46:35

Well I do believe my pack of maltesers has stopped them.

Call NICE!

lovebunny Sat 10-Nov-12 22:46:44

could you ask my chest to stop coughing, my throat to stop hurting and my teeth, jaw and tongue to stop aching, as well? i'd really appreciate a break from this. i'm going to dose myself up with ibuprofen and go to bed shortly.

DoodleAlley Sat 10-Nov-12 22:49:00

Would maltesers help? I'm willing to extend the licence to other malaises

AgentZigzag Sat 10-Nov-12 22:54:40

DD gets sneezing fits from hayfever/grass/pet allergies, she'll be most chuffed to find maltesers will help grin

Campaign to get them free on the NHS anyone?

squoosh Sat 10-Nov-12 23:07:31

My Dad has sneezing fits when he drinks beer. Honestly once he sneezed I think 60 times in a row!

Bimblepops Sat 10-Nov-12 23:08:57

You can take antihistamine's which have loratadine as their active ingredient when you are pregnant.

Good luck!

DoodleAlley Sat 10-Nov-12 23:17:17

I stopped eating maltesers and within five minutes my sneezes returns.

If that's not conclusive proof then I don't know what is!

AgentZigzag Sat 10-Nov-12 23:24:03

'If that's not conclusive proof then I don't know what is!'

You could get a research grant for that nugget grin

S'not just me then? My GP has put me on Piriton on TOP of my year round daily cetirizine. And still I'm having sneezing fits where I sneeze so much I can't breathe.

Bastard hayfever in fucking November, it's not right I tell you, not bloody right!

DoodleAlley Sun 11-Nov-12 00:29:57

Aha! I'm not going crazy.

Ok even I know that's a supposition too far.

I'm not imagining flipping hay fever in November. What on earth grows in November?

CouthyMowEatingBraiiiiinz Sun 11-Nov-12 00:31:02

The Holly and the Ivy reading their calendar wrong?

DoodleAlley Sun 11-Nov-12 00:31:54

According to Dr Google there can still be fungus spores triggering hayfever in November.

Bloody mushrooms.

DoodleAlley Sun 11-Nov-12 00:33:15

I have had hayfever in early October but nothing so late. Am sulking at the world because it's cold, a month and a half til christmas and I'm lying in Bed sneezing. And I've run out of maltesers.

SamanthaStormer Sun 11-Nov-12 00:34:29

Is it hayfever though?! Sounds like a reaction to something to me. (This coming from someone with multiple allergies and intolerances!) I've been off alcohol for a few weeks, as have been diagnosed as having a yeast intolerance and thought I'd better be good.
Back on the cider last night and within an hour my nose instantly 'filled up' lovely and I'm back to my sneezing fits of about 10 in one sneezes in a single row!

DoodleAlley Sun 11-Nov-12 00:36:33

Hmm.

Can't think what's changed except being pregnant.

I'm going to isolate the plant my parents bought me a few weeks back to see if that helps but I'm on a different floor right now and still sneezing.
