I have allergies really bad. I keep getting headaches and becoming lightheaded, but worst of all my energy levels keep dropping. I have tried other things to increase my energy levels like kiwis, vitamins and such. Any suggestions?

Personally, for my outdoor allergies, I take strong antihistamines and drinks lots of hot tea/coffee.

and of course try to avoid your body's allergen as much as possible

your diet can/will affect your energy level, but allergies can pretty much trump that.
they are equally important, treat your allergies, and eat healthy.

good luck

I have allergies and actually used to take the shots years ago until I decided to ween myself off of them. I know for sure you have to eat healthy, also try to eat food high in proteins and definitely vitamin c. If u r not taking some type of multivitamin u may need to start. One more thing try zyrtex, it works for me, vitamin water as well (the one that says energy)

Allergies laid me out yesterday after my workout. Had to go to the Doctor so know what your feeling. Got a shot but have to wait 3-5 days for the full effect to kick in. Messed me up today and I've been taking it easy. The shots usually work well for me. Just waiting for them to work their magic is what sucks as your suffering until then. :-( Will be doing some light workouts in a bit anyway because I don't want to break my routine. :-) sometimes the pollen count is just too high and even though I eat super healthy, take vitamins every day, it still boils down to your bodies ability to adjust quickly enough to the amount of pollen in your area. This year it's really bad in my area.

i feel you-  before i had my allergy shots as a kid, i had allergies so severe they stunted my growth.  No energy, all i wanted to do was lay around.  Then i had the allergy shots in second grade, and i started growing closer to normal for my age.  Now the shots have worn off (about 5 years ago) and i take multiple allergy and asthma medicines daily to manage symptoms.  Do what you need to do to get your symptoms in control- and talk to your doctor about how it's affecting your daily life. 

avoid any triggers that you're able to- including foods that might be problematic (if you're not sure what things trigger you, you can have allergy testing done, or keep a daily journal of the things you get exposed to and how you're feeling that day).

Hope you're feeling top-notch soon!
