..or have I just got a bad cold?
I have hayfever in May and June every year but never usually this late-just wondered whether it is still season.

i used to have it really bad and then it stopped for years but is back again this year so it must be really high pollen count and i am in the pouring rain every day hmm

Yes terrible. I was convinced last week I was getting a cold. It went away but came back today. strangely it seems to be worse when it is raining.

Mine started halfway through May, then stopped unexpectedly a week and a half ago.

i wasnt sure if the season was over, or if my new medication is absolutely fantastic. it seems it is.
a few weeks ago, i was drugged up to my eyeballs, and still barely functioning. couldnt concentrate on any task, couldnt breathe, was sure i shouldnt be driving. awful. went to see a kinesiologist and she told me to take something called hesperidin. five tablets a go, and another five when i felt symptoms coming on again. this, along with three zinc tablets twice a day. the hesperidin is expensive, 12 pounds for bottle of sixty and i used up two bottles in the first week, but, now dont need to be taking that many, and i honestly wasnt sure if the season was over, or not. absolutely fantastic stuff. go see a kinesiologist if you can. for me, they are worth every penny

Thing.. you may have reactions to oranges or tomatoes or the deadly nightshade vegs. I follow the Blood type diet ;author Dr. peter D'Adamo and have no more hay fever symptoms.
