Does anyone get dizzy or lightheaded with their seasonal allergies? Unfortunately, seasonal allergies started for a few weeks ago (mid-February! shocked ). Because I was getting really congested and Zyrtec wasn't doing anything for me, I tried Zyrtec-D earlier this week. That's when the dizziness and lightheadedness started. Like if I was standing for too long or standing up right after sitting for a while, I would see specks or a whole bunch of "floaters" and would need to regain my balance. I switched back to regular Zyrtec after that and have still been getting dizzy and lightheaded. I remember the same thing happening last year, but it went away in the winter...
 
Also, someone tell me where the best place for allergy suffers to live is! I need to move there after I graduate! :)

Well don't move to Michigan! lol I heard that the dry warmer states are better for allergies such as Arizona or Nevada.

I don't get dizzy or lightheaded with my allergies. Do your ears bother you much?

Arizona is not a great state for allergiey sufferers. My mom lived there. She got new allergies on top of her old ones from the trees that bloom in the winter - olives and such. It's also worse for dust!

Maybe Alaska.

I've had seasonal and dust allergies since I was a little kid, in Michigan. I have gotten rid of all my symptoms with weekly injections. If my husband isn't home to give them, I just give them to myself. It's no worse than being an insulin dependent diabetic.

Red--no, my ears aren't bothering me.
 
Alcie--what kind of injections do you take?
 
couchtater--I'm in GA, too. I don't think I can handle allergies starting in February every year!
