But I felt fine on my run. Came home, and commenced to sneezing and feeling like crap again.
Sunday I felt like crap all day too. But somehow, late Sunday, I realized, hey maybe it's allergies, not a head cold!
Allergies to what? Nothing is in bloom here. Then I remembered the cut flowers in the vase in the living room. Ah, that's the culprit! Promptly threw them over the hill.
Monday morning, still sniffling and sneezing. I get to work, and all symptoms (almost) go away. Yeah, there is some environmental allergy at work here.
Today I check weather.com as I do every day. (I don't know why, half the time they are wrong..) and sure enough, their site says HIGH POLLEN COUNT for my area.
Huh? From what? I still don't see what is aggravating my body, but something is, and the "experts" say that
pollen is out there somewhere.
What can you/I do about it? There are three non-sedating antihistamines on the OTC market-Claritin, Zyrtec, Allegra. Which one is best? Which ever one works for you. I usually buy whatever is lowest price in the generic form.
I tried the Zyrtec (cetirizine) on Sunday, which did not help really. It was also out of date (past its expiration date). So Monday I bought and started on the Allegra. This has really help alleviate my symptoms, I just have a tickly nose right now.
The weather forecast for today is around 80 degrees today. This is one of the days that I hope they get "half right"!!
