What can i take to aliviate symptoms of allergies: -itchy, grainy, irritated, burning eyes. - swelling and congestion of sinuses, sinus pressure, headache . -light headed almostalways. Dizzy when going from sitting to standing up. -dripping from nasal passages down my troat. Irriated nostrils. -difficulty breathing thru nose . -tight chest, congested chest, forced breathing, -my greatest complain is INTOLERANCE To cold air (A/C air is worse): a winter coat won t help. My ears. My hands, my legs feel like freezing at let s say 75 degress F. -and of course all this symptoms make me lose focus; cant read, can t stand bright light, or noises. -and all i want to do is eat eat eat and sleep.

antihistamines are the drug of choice for an acute attack. main thing is to avoid situations and things that worsen your symptoms. i.e. avoid dust, strong perfume smell, carpets, wear face mask etc. you can also get a shot of influenza vaccine each year. it will help to reduce the frequency of your attacks and also help reduce there severity.
take care
