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.
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)
There r plenty of days I catch myself dragging because of my allergies but I convince myself that I really want this
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!
i had an allergy test done 2 weeks ago and they said I'm allergic to LETTUCE. idk how that's possible i eat lettuce almost everyday.
also tree pollens and weeds is what gives me my most trouble
