Does anybody else have it?
And are they being absolutely raped by it at the moment?
Hayfever sucks balls.
I don't have it. My Dad suffers awfully with it and can barely see at times because his eyes swell up and water so badly.
Also does anybody have any drug advice on what kills it off, I've only ever had 1 set of pills that worked, and my body became immune to them so they stopped working.
I know what hayfever is,
but what actuall IS it? Scientifically speaking?
I was gonna post this today... bastard!
An allergy to pollen.
Hurstafus > Eyepopper.
I've been meaning to post it for a few days now, mine started a few weeks back. Was a nightmare in Rome, never normally get it abroad.
Zirtek works but makes you drowsy as fuck
I don't get it.
I imagine it's a right pisser though.
I don't really think this will help, but I've never had a problem with it.
I was only effected by it in my mid 20's so I wouldn't count your blessings just yet lads.
I've built up an immunity to Cetirizine dihydrochloride, which is in them. Used them a few years ago but they stopped working. Moved onto something I got from the doctors, and that didn't work so I'm on piriton at the moment which doesn't do much.
I've never had it.
Don't count your chickens yet, as Popper said people pick it up at different times, my mum started having problems with it when she was in her 30s.
so what your saying is me being 25 makes me prime candidate to get this allergy!?
Well that's just great isn't it! actually my eye was watering a bit over the weekend. Doomed I am.
probably nothing to do with the coke fucking up your sinuses
Its a bitch, I'm crying my eyes out here..
What you need to do is build a plastic bubble.
And that's about it.
Failing that, pluck out your own eye-balls and place them in a glass of iced water. I very nearly fucking did this, after walking to work through a park this morning.
Any tips on how to do this?
would it be like one of them zorbing things? and if it was how would I go about making sure it never popped?
Well I eh....
Hold on, I dont do coke!
I hate the nasal spray things, they're horrible to use.
I know what you mean, where I live, there's a forest in front of the house, and fields surrounding the back and sides, it's horrible. Last few days have been agony.
I might give this spray thing a chance though.
None at all.
You have to use it every day for 3 or 4 days before you get any benefits. It's a bit grim but better than a constant desire to attack your own septum with a cheese-grater and/or gargle sand-paper.
Thanks for the advice. My doctor said that acupuncture can basically cure it. I don't feel comfy with having all those pins in my face though, and it's quite pricey.
Hmmm.... I think your doctor is being slightly optimistic about the effect of acupuncture.
My eyes are ok at the moment. They get worse though later in the summer.
My nose and throat are fucking killing me though.
I posted a thread on this when spring hit. It's sneezes galore for me at the moment!
Hadnt had any problems yet this year but it kicked in over the weekend and its a right arse - i prefer to avoid pills so have tried many other ideas (homeopathy, changing diet etc)
I recommend a big spliff - I have no idea about the science behind it but it does tend to calm the symptoms on particularly high pollen days.
I have a mate who keep going on about honey being a cure - anyone had any success with this?
Ive heard about honey before, never tried it though. Also been told to cover my nostrils with vaseline - no thanks
How about the effect of cannabis on hayfever? Im sure you have tried that!
Im totally serious about this - can have rivers of mucus streaming from my nose and tears in my eyes, then have a smoke and its like turning a tap off - instant relief.
no i dont suffer from hayfever because i am fucking great
that is all
I've heard stuffing straw up your nose helps.
I have terrible hayfever at times in the summer, was pretty bad last year. I think I have an issue with the white flowers (elderflowers?). Hasn't been too bad so far though.
That would be the anticholinergic (google it) effects of mary-jane. Same mechanism that causes cotton mouth.
The only problem is that weed can actually increase histamine release (which is why you get red eyes) and I always find that once the initial effects wear off (i.e. being heavily cained and, hence, distracted) my hayfever comes back worse than ever.
it takes more than a few pesky flowers to hurt a real man....
how are things rimmy? no hayfever problems then i take it
definitely no pansy flower related problems that's for sure. a naked man chasing me with a dandelion holds no fear for me. how's tricks?
indeed it holds no fear for me either, more excitement than anything else...
yeah things are good, could be better but could be worse. lack of employment annoys me, most of my working hours have been cut now, what about you? working hard or hardly working?
