Allergy Season Comes A Little Early

While some of us are grateful for a mild winter this year, doctors say those tolerable temperatures are now causing a headache for allergy sufferers.

Experts we spoke with say after having a mild winter, their phones are ringing off the hook with patients suffering from early spring allergies.

With many trees and plants already in bloom, many allergy patients are calling to schedule early allergy injections and new allergy patients are calling to schedule an appointment.

Medical assistant Jennifer Brinson says, "With the weather changes, things going from cold to hot and things are blooming out of season that they normally wouldn't, they are having a lot of sneezing attacks and different allergy symptoms."

Brinson advises those who are battling with allergy symptoms to contact their local physician so that they can hopefully find out what is making them sick and offer some kind of relief.

Allergies differ from a cold in that the cold will go away while allergies tend to linger until treated.

    This could have been prevented if the FDA had approved my allergy medication. OK it did cause apeism in some but once the seizures abated and the paralysis set in, it worked really well.

      That sounds like something the FDA would approve, really surpised they passed on that one.
