    is this fitness related? it is to me. fucked up my workout tonight. never had them before, and im only assuming thats what this is. my head feels like im in an airplane and my ears wont pop, with small bouts of dizziness every now and again.
    throat is a bit itchy and flegmy too. yum.

    not cool when your squatting and the dizzy/lightheaded spell kicks in.
    damn pollen.

    anyone try anything for allergies? i really prefer to not use meds, i hate meds. :(

    I have the worst allergies and i have to take like 3 claratin a day or I will sneese all day. I'm about to go to the doc to get some harder shit. The only thing i've herd that might work is buying local honey thats made in your area and eat some of that. The bees have anti allergy shit for the kind of pollen in plants in your area.

    My allergies fuck me so bad in spring, from early April-June, sometimes even into July. Claritin is ehh, does ok but not that great....South Florida sucks in spring for allergies.

    I've used zyrtec (sp) and it works a lot better than claratin but its more expensive depending on what ins you have.

    I get bad allergies too. I've used Claritin before and it worked ok for me, but Zyrtec worked a lot better. The only thing I didn't like about Zyrtec was sometimes I got a nasty taste in my mouth for no reason.

    Yeah thats one of the side effects. If you read on the box it says that some people may experience a taste of poop in their mouth.

    I have HORRIBLY allergies. On good/decent days when I am taking my med's and not encountering anything that I am allergic to directly I am pretty ok... but I live 24/7 with a stuffed up nose no matter what time of year it is. On a bad day.... Forget about it. Sneezing, running nose, itchy eyes, breaking out in hives, feeling sick to my stomach from all the flem I have to swallom, etc... I only get like this maybe 10-15 times a summer though and it will usually last half a day.

    I have tried every med on the market and nothing gets rid of it... Some stuff helps keep the symptoms down though. I am considering shots now.
