    i am hoping i wont either!
    i do find that the cheap antihistimines from tesco and asda are just as good as piroton and zirtec imo

    Had it since I was 8 or 9.
    Hasn't struck me down this year yet,usually another month or so before I start feeling it,and working outside doesn't help either

    I've tried every hayfever tablet/spray on the market over the last 20 years. Not one has worked......never tried the cheapies though

    I'm not suffering yet but I can sense it's coming. The rapeseed fields kill me (used to live near loads of fields), but the one that started it all was flaxseed. Grass usually gets me too but even walking the dogs past the council guys cutting the grass I was OK. Hope I've 'grown' out of it. My brother is 6 years older than me and only suffers a tiny bit now at the worst of times. Not sure what he did differently ie. diet etc, but he's fine with it now....the bugger.

    Well my BH weekend has been not that much fun with my hayfever supposedly its something to do with beech trees as its been so cold and now a warm spot of weather they have gone mental.

    Think i may well stock up on some of the cheapy antihistamin tablets and take them daily over the summer to avoid feeling like this if possible.

    I asked for injections off the doctor but he said there was no such thing. Tried the next year and they said they only give it to people under special circumstances.....how did you get it?

    Getting married in the summer (outside), is that a special circumstance? As a tax-payer I'd like to think that I should just be able to click my fingers and get what I want.

    First hit me when I was about 11 and my eyes would swell up. Now, despite being on prescription drugs, I'll still be sneezing until October.

    I have tried ALL off the shelf stuff and nothing worked (and I get Hayfever REALLY bad - to the point I can barely breathe) So last year I went to the docs and he finally prescribed me with something different: Fexofenadine Hydrochloride tablets. I take one a day along with this nose spray he also prescribed and I don't get a hint of it anymore!

    Know what you mean - I've been a sufferer for best part of 45 years and this year my eyes have been the worst ever - I use Rhinocort nasal spray for the sneezing and it is the best for me. Tried everything else including accupincture.
