I have been suffering from this !*(^#(^#*#%^% seasonal allergy since the start of this month. It got worse last week. I started taking "Clarinase" at night and found it helpful, it dries my runny nose, which is super... but it also dries my mouth BIG TIME... and all I can think of all day is water.. glass of water!! So I have decided not to take it Tuesday night. BAD idea!! I woke up sneezing, I swear it was non-stop. I so regretted not taking the seasonal allergies shot!!!
I went to work, but it was driving me nuts!! My eyes were red and watery, my nose was also red, runny, itchy, stuffy, and congested all over.. oh and worst of all.. this bad BAD headache.
I was trying to function.. gathering all my energy up to do my best, but there were those breaks in between where I had to stop, resting my head against my hands, with my eyes closed out of the extreme discomfort that I was in! arghhhhhhhhhhhhhh! I so wanted to leave work, but it was still early... 11ish and I was trying hard to keep it all up at least till market closes!
I went to see my ENT doctor at around 8:30pm.. he asked me what was wrong and wrote it all down, and then when he started examining me, he looked into my throat and said... oh this is mild, then looked into my ears and said I was fine, but the minute he looked into my nostrils he was like OHHHH thats bad! its really inflamed and really bad! He gave me the next day (today) off. I was fatigue and restless. I didnt even eat suhoor or anything after futoor.
The medication seems to be helping since I am not sneezing as much.. at least not sneezing my heads off like I was yesterday... but knowing me, I am not big on medications and so.. and I really dont want to get used to taking medications. Any natural remedies you have to share? Would saline help?
