NYC Allergy Treatments Located in the West Village of Manhattan New York City 10014
It's that time of the year again, when allergies strike. "What time of the year?" you may ask. Unfortunately, any time of the year can be allergy time. In fact, it is estimated that over 40 percent of the population is suffering from some type of allergy at any given moment.
Allergy symptoms can range from mild to severe. Even mild symptoms of an allergy can have a negative affect on quality of life. I have had patients who told me they hated to see spring and warmer weather arrive. They have stated that even though the warm weather is such a treat, they know they will spend the majority of spring sneezing and wiping their eyes. Allergy symptoms include:
- Itchy, watery eyes
- Sinus headaches
- Sinus pressure that most people associate with allergies
- Difficulty breathing
- Mental fatigue
- Vomiting and abdominal pain
When these symptoms worsen and seem to feel continuous, they are said to be moderate allergy symptoms. Moderate allergy symptoms can also include sore throats and itchiness. Those who suffer from moderate allergy symptoms may have trouble catching their breath after exertion.
Severe allergy symptoms
can be life-threatening and usually happen within minutes of exposure to the allergen. Severe symptoms can cause swelling of different parts of the face and neck, can impair breathing, cause mental fog and confusion, and cause vomiting and abdominal pain.
