They started about 2 years ago. During the day, I'm fine but every night when I wake up in the middle of the night, I have a congested nose and sneezing. In the morning I wake up with a blocked nose and it takes a couple hours to get back to normal.
I had a blood test about a year ago and the doctor told me I had an allergy to birch/birch pollen, but I don't understand why a birch allergy would be all year... He told me there was a pill or a shot available for treatment but wouldn't be suitable for me as I'm a teenager and the side effects would be too overwhelming for younger patients. I can't remember the last time I had a normal night of sleep without waking up and being so uncomfortable.
Most people take a few days to get rid of a cold. I take ages to recover. In fact, I got a cold about a week ago and it has made my allergies so much worse. More congestion, more sneezing, runny nose, and it happens during the day as well.
I'm getting so fed up with it. I just want it gone. I'd do anything for a good night's sleep again. Please, if there's anyone who can tell me what's wrong, if there are any treatments, maybe even someone who is suffering the same symptoms as me, do let me know.
