Like many people my allergies get worse in the evening and
make it difficult to breath all night long, but in the middle of the day I’m
fine or at least functional. Does this
Our bodies are on cycles, it ramps up in the morning
producing the hormones and chemicals we need to function through the day and it
ramps down at night since we don’t need these hormones while we sleep. Included in these are epinephrine and
adrenaline, along with a list of others that I can’t remember right now. As
your body ramps down it also becomes more receptive to histamine which is part
of the immune system’s inflammation response to foreign matter including
viruses and bacteria.
Unfortunately in people with allergies the histamine sees
pollen (or whatever you’re allergic to) as an invading threat and reacts to
destroy it just as it would when you have a cold.
