First time I experience this hay fever and I feel very frustrated! No medicine seems to work fast enough. My eyes, nose and soft palate feel like they got anesthesia. I feel like sneezing all the time, without the relief.

I have never had hay fever this bad before. I feel like I am high and spaced out on something. My whole back and neck ache, I get hot sweats, my throat is itchy, my eyes puff up when I scratch them, and my nose is constantly running. I feel super frustrated. I get headaches and I feel so tired all of the time.

When I get hay fever I stay in the air conditioning as cold as I can stand it.
