I'm looking for some advice on what to do with my allergies. I'm currently a 25 year old male and I have been through just about every allergy treatment in the book.

Every year around this time I loose all control of my allergies. Some of the bigger problems are:

- Sleeping at night, I injest a lot of mucus/snot and spend most of the next day throwing up while my stomach tries to expel it.
- Lots of pressure in my sinuses just below my eyes, sometimes I've even a little off balance, and seem to have one ear that feels clogged up.
- Blowing me nose several hundred times in one day, sometimes however nothing comes out and my entire nasal cavity is just "blocked".

Has anyone else experienced symptoms this severe and can give me some advice?

Hi and welcome :) Have you been to see an ENT? Have you tried allergy shots? Do you know what it is you are allergic to? Do you smoke?

I do not smoke. I have seen an ENT in the past. I took allergy shots for 2 years but it has not seemed to help at all. I am allergic to anything and everything, ranging from animal hair, to pollen, to dust.

You might look in to food-pollen cross-reactivity and try to reduce or eliminate the consumption of cross-reactive foods during the particular season of the year when the pollens that cross-react with those foods are pollinating. For instance, birch pollen is out right now where I live, and so I have to avoid apples and related fruits because of the cross-reactivity with birch pollen during birch pollen season, otherwise I get a lot worse allergy and stomach/intestinal symptoms.

Another idea is to look into acupuncture therapy for allergies - called NAET.

Good luck,
