Anyone else feeling awful suddenly? Tree pollen?

It's March - I get an overwhelming wave of lethargy - so tired I could just curl up in any old corner and sleep all day. Loratadine/hay fever treatment seems to help, but my GP last year said that it wasn't hay fever/allergy as I would have other symptoms. My gut instinct is that she's wrong as it happens every year at this time and lasts about 6 weeks. Day 2 today - 40 to go? Feeling sorry for myself and just wondered if anyone else suffers at this time of year?

Same here! I've been like it for a couple of weeks already - tired, bunged up, sinusy. I saw the doctor a couple of years ago and she tried to convince me it was a cat allergy - strange how the cat and I manage to get along the rest of the time!

I was supposed to go for blood tests but never went as a needle phobia and a bout of pancreatitis put it to the back of my mind.

Because I'm so bunged up I'm taking Benadryl Extra and it seems to be helping but it's so expensive I can't afford it so I'm going to have to see if I can get a prescription.

I hope you're feeling better soon.

Not me, but my usually healthy, energetic DH has been knackered for the past fortnight for no obvious reason - perhaps he's same as you?
I'll get him on the antihistamines and see if that helps.

Yep,DD is a mass of snot & very lethargic, itchy eyes.
Got some loratadine yesterday so hopefully that will help.

Am feeling very tired and sinussy today. Took an antihistamine after reading this thread.

It's good to know that it's not just me! I'm actually feeling a bit brighter but ds1 has just drooped now, and looks exactly the same. Bleeuuggghhh. Sympathy to all fellow sufferers.
