Are You Ignoring Your Allergy Symptoms?
NYC Allergists Call Out The Symptoms You’ve Been Living With
If “Meh” Is Your Response to Allergy Symptoms, You May Want to Consider What These NYC Allergists Have to Say
Maybe you have mild allergy symptoms that you consider shrug worthy. Or maybe you experience symptoms that you’re not really sure are due to allergies at all; you have a sneaking suspicion, but is it really worth your time to look deeper?
The top NYC allergists at Hudson Allergy say… YES. Becoming aware of what allergies exist for you, even if the symptoms are mild, can help you live a healthier, more comfortable life.
In fact, the American College of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology says that allergies are the sixth leading cause of chronic illness in the United States. If you’ve experienced ongoing symptoms — again, even mild ones — that have kept you feeling an underlying level of fatigue or discomfort, you might be allowing the effects of allergies to compromise your well-being on a daily basis.
Here are some common allergy symptoms that the best NYC allergists ask…
True or false? Are you living with and/or ignoring these symptoms?
T or F – Anxiety:
Did you know that experiencing anaphylactic shock and panic attacks feel similarly? If you experience extreme anxiety, you may want to rule out a dangerous allergy.
T or F – Cracked Lips:
As Eleven so aptly puts it in the first season of Stranger Things: “Mouth breather.” Okay, so we’re not actually calling you an ‘80s ape-like bully. The simple truth is that when allergies cause chronic congestion, you end up breathing through your mouth most of the time — a common cause of cracked lips. So, yeah. Calling all mouth breathers. Let’s have a little look-see.
T or F – Congestion:
While we’re at it, let’s talk about that congestion. If you find that you’re just perpetually stuffy, even when you know you don’t have a cold, allergies are a likely culprit.
T or F – Itchy Tongue or Throat:
Does your tongue or throat feel itchy after eating certain fruits or vegetables? You may have oral allergy syndrome.
T or F –Frequent Headaches:
Allergies that cause mucus buildup in the sinus cavities often lead to headaches. If you have headaches every week (and certainly if you experience them with any greater frequency), you’d be wise to check in with an allergist.
T or F – Fatigue:
Allergies make breathing more difficult, which is especially problematic when trying to get a good night’s sleep. If untreated, allergy-related sleep disruptions can turn into sleep apnea.
Don’t let allergies compromise one more day of your life! If you’ve tolerated symptoms and turned them into your daily “normal,” you may be pleasantly surprised to find out just how much better you can feel.
