My Allergy Diagnosis
Last updated: October 2022
I probably had allergies all my life but wasn't officially diagnosed with them until 2012.
Living with seasonal allergies
I would get the occasionally stuffy nose and itching eyes in the fall & summer but never thought too much of it. I would just put a hot washcloth on my face use some eyedrops or nasal spray & go about my business.
Learning about allergic rhinitis
I woke up one morning with congestion that sinus pain & pressure. I made an appt that day & learned that I have allergic rhinitis(hay fever).
