Anyone else dying a slow and painful death from it?

Mine has been horrific for the past couple of weeks. Usually by this time of years it's easing off, but clearly because of the delayed warmer weather, it's hit later, and more concentrated than usual.

Bloody awful this year. I have found, however, that taking a tablet just as I go to bed, helps me wake up feeling much better then, about 9am I take another for the day.
Modesty is just arrogance in stealth mode

I have to take my tablet in the morning as I need the effects of it it be strong for my journey home (35 miles), taking it in the evening ends up with it being worn out by then.

Yeah its later and worse than usual. I find taking a shower before bed helps. My doc says it gets rid of any pollen that might be in your hair and body. Other than that its sunglasses and pills to keep the worst of it at bay.
I'm ahead of my time, but only by 15 min

Mine's been been mostly not too bad so far, in fact so far it's been far less servere than many previous years. It's unpredictable, though. A few times in the last week or two I've gone outside for just a matter of a minute before experiencing quite sudden and dramatic discomfort, including my body trying to violently sneeze and cough at the exact same instant!

I think it must depend on which types of pollen each person is allergic to. I normally get hayfever far earlier in the year, so I'm guessing that with the sudden change of weather I'm being just occasionally affected by small pockets of some plant that has flowered (?) later than normal, and it's maybe not the same plant as is affecting most sufferers right now.

I am left wondering if it is actually possible to due from it, as this year is the worst one I've had in years!

I used to get so bad that I couldn't drive or leave the house. Tried lots of pills which worked to a greater or lesser degree. Then my neighbour suggested acupuncture. I was so bad at the time I would try anything, so I had 2 sessions and it was like a miracle cure. No tablets, no drowsiness, no loss of energy - just normal.

It was explained to me that your body has a set tolerance to allergens, bit like a cup. When the limit is reached the cup overflows and you get symptoms. Western medicine mopps up the overflowed water, whereas eastern medicine empties the cup!

So I recommend you find a good acupuncturist. One who specialises in it rather than does it as an aside to a different specialisation. If they can tell you where they'll put the needles before examining you, don't go there. I used to go 1 or 2 times each year just as I got first symptoms, and be fine for the rest of the year. I rarely suffer now, but know where to go if I do.
