Seasonal allergies can be a real challenge for anyone who suffers from them. The symptoms can be painful and uncomfortable, and they can disrupt your sleep. While there are many ways to manage seasonal allergies and prevent them from having an impact on your health, some people find that their symptoms are so severe that they need to seek professional medical treatment. In this article, we'll discuss the most common symptoms associated with seasonal allergies, how they affect sleep and what you can do to keep yourself healthy throughout the year.
Pollen is a powerful allergen and can cause a number of different symptoms. It can trigger nasal congestion, sneezing, sinus pressure, post-nasal drip and cough. If you suffer from seasonal allergies year after year then it's likely that your body will begin to react to pollen earlier in the season than expected. This is because your body has become more sensitive over time to this particular allergen (pollen).
The pollen count in your area may be higher than usual due to weather conditions such as rain or wind which can affect how much pollen escapes from trees and plants into the air around you
The most common allergy symptoms include nasal congestion, sneezing and sinus pressure. Nasal congestion is characterized by a runny nose that often results in the need to blow your nose more often than usual. Sneezing is also a common symptom of seasonal allergies because allergens can irritate the lining of your nose and cause mucous membranes to swell up and produce extra fluid that drips down into your throat or mouth - leading you to cough up phlegm (snot).
There are many other less common but still uncomfortable allergy symptoms like: post-nasal drip (a sensation of having something stuck in your throat), itchy eyes or ears; scratchy throat; headaches; fatigue/drowsiness; trouble concentrating/thinking clearly
When you have seasonal allergies, the lining of your nose becomes inflamed and swollen, causing it to produce excess mucus. This is called rhinitis and it's not just a nuisance--it's actually a sign that your body is working to protect itself from allergens such as pollen or mold spores that can trigger asthma attacks. The excess mucus traps these allergens before they reach the lungs and cause inflammation there.
The good news? You can treat most cases of seasonal rhinitis with over-the-counter antihistamines (like Claritin) or decongestants (like pseudoephedrine). These drugs help reduce swelling in the nasal passages so you can breathe freely again!
Seasonal allergies can cause serious sleep disruptions. Seasonal allergies, like hay fever and pollen-induced asthma, are triggered by exposure to specific allergens such as pollen or mold spores. When you breathe in those allergens, your body releases histamine which causes inflammation and congestion in the nose and throat.
The most common symptoms of seasonal allergies include:
If you have seasonal allergies and you're having trouble sleeping because of them, there are several things that may help:
It's important to talk with your doctor about the most effective treatments for your specific symptoms. Seasonal allergies can cause serious sleep disruptions, but there are many ways to help keep seasonal allergies under control so they don't affect your sleep.
