Allergy Rant

My eyes are burning. I've been rubbing them for weeks as my allergies have been wreaking havoc. Not only are my eyes puffy and bloodshot, I may have a wee infection in my right one.
Not that this has anything to do with running, though I am sneezing more when pounding the trails. Over-the-counter meds make me drowsy, though I take them after particularly bad sneezing fits. I was supposed to go to the doctor last week, but had to cancel because I couldn't get away from work.
I finally have a doctor's appointment for Monday. But I may claw out my eyes and rip off my nose before then.


  1. Fellow allergy sufferer, all I can say is I feel your pain. I hate meds and refuse to take them. The only relief I have found is with sprays, Nasonex and the like.
    I was a mouth breather last night due to allergies, brutal.

  2. Allergies have everything to do with running because that's when you're out there moving along and all of the pollens are blowing around..and into your eyes. There are some eye drops that you can ask your doctor about. They help, but I don't know if they are safe to use for people with contact lens. Good luck
