In the spring and fall, my allergies are pretty severe, which in turn causes me to get sick. I've read a lot of literature that says allergies do not cause one to get sick, but I think that's hogwash. Everyone in my family has severe allergies and they (especially my kids) would get sick like clockwork every single time their allergies would kick up. For me, when my allergies get bad I end up with pharyngitis which in turn causes me laryngitis. In the past, my doc would put me on Allegra and it would help. Now I'm on allergy meds 24/7 and I have managed to be laryngitis free for a few years now.
Take a deep breath and put your worries on a shelf. That is why my p-doc told me when my anxiety kicks in overdrive. It doesn't always work tho lol I hope you feel better soon.
