Sneeze every morning once waking up, not living in dusty environment or pollen. Why is it ?

I sneeze every morning once waking up. it would take me 5-10 min sneezing and clearing off my nose . I ve been like this since I was 7 and am now 30! what makes me wonder is that, I ve done changing my mattresses, pillows etc. got no pets at home. not living in a dusty environment nor pollen trees/plants are very rare in our aqea. all these possible causes makes no sense at all since this has been happening to me year round and everywhere! I was even out of the country for a couple of times yet experienced the same thing over and over. every morning about 5-10 min of continous sneezing then voila! sneeze gone and i ll be okay the rest of the day. please help. (you may wonder why now is the only time I had interest figuring out what s wrong. I got used to it! lol!)

you surly have allergy it can be related to dust or pollen, but its mostly dust allergy because its present through out the year. how much ever you try you will not be able to control dust mites which is present every where,you are lucky your symptoms are only during when you wake up for 5 - 10 min.many people have through the day full year. if your symptoms are not bothering you that much then you can ignore it if it bothers you and you need medication then it should be done in step wise manner
first if your symptoms is for few months a year like 2-3 months then you start an antihistamine which you have to take daily at night. if your symptoms still persist then your start using steroid nasal spray, it has no side effect and it controls the allergy very well and you should start 2 weeks before your symptoms start. if this also does not cure you.
then get yourself tested for allergy, it is called skin prick test you will know what you are allergic to, then if possible you can avoid the allergen or you can start treatment called immunotherpy. this is currently the best treatment available and your symptoms will easily reduce by 80-90 percent kindly visit your ent specialist he will guide you further.
thank you
