quick question?

William's hay fever seems to be making its presence felt these days. Annoyingly he doesnt say , ' mummy I have a horrible throat, itchy eyes,' the sensible stuff , he just goes in to a grumpy old man phase. Complaining over and over again.

He has been happier with antihistamine, until this monday evening. He has had the odd crop of hives sitting on top of new ezcema in the folds of his elbows and backs of knees. Then he suddenly complained of a headache, and after a couple of hours he threw up.

So, my question , have you ever had a migraine due to hay fever? Is that possible?

I have started using the nasel sprays and eye drops along with his antihistamine.

Youngest now has new crops of eczema,and has visable hay fever symptoms.

As does hubby, and every morning I am shoving multivitamins, omega supplements and hay fever stuff down every ones necks. Its driving me bonkers!

whats wrong with a cup and tea and toast in the mornings!!

Sarah,

I have hayfever and no migranes or headaches.

DD used to get what I thought were migranes but I thought they were stress, she has tons of allergies too. She would get this horrible headache, vomit, fall asleep and wake up cured.

You sure the supplements are not the problem? Could be additives.

Good luck Peggy

Sarah, yes, I have definitely had environmental allergies trigger a migraine or a headache of a different sort (as I sit at keyboard in blackened home with a really bad one that I fell ill with right after the kids' school to-day).

One day this Spring, I had taken my daily antihistamine (which I take at night with any other meds I take), but during the day, I had ghastly post nasal drip (I am the woman that never sneezes - it all just stays in there somehow, terribly gross). I thought, okay, you can take another antihistamine to dry this stuff up in your nose.

So, I did. An hour later, migraine. Not clear why, except I am positive it had something to do with environmental allergies.

Going Nuts and I have also discussed in the migraines thread how we will have migraines start in our nose and then kinda explode.

And certainly, definitely, most uncertainly, headaches from environmental allergies that seem to get worse and worse every year (the environmental allergies). This year, I had to get nasal spray (not unusual) and eye drops for allergy eyes. I'm a mess (not unusual [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/tongue.gif[/img] )

Mold definitely is a trigger for my migranes. When the fungus levels are high I can always tell.

Sarah, not clear what mine is ALL about to-day because it's usually a combo of factors for me, but my post nasal stuff is really bad right now. There is one tree in my neighbourhood, and, of course, I have to live on the street with the thing, and it looks like it is snowing outside. White stuff coming from this tree, big fluffy balls almost like dandelion stuff, but huge, and from this tree.

When I look out on the street, it actually looks as though there is snow piled up on the side of the street and on the back hill behind me.

Now, as I say, for me (but I'm an old one), I have other triggers as well and I have to usually have a combo going to get set back the way I did this evening, but my nose is really bad right now and one of the ways I'm going to be trying to get rid of this migraine tonight is squirting up my nose the nasal spray.

Hi Sarah My daughter is suffering so badly this year....it must be a VERY high pollen count this year in the UK!!! And as for the headaches, she gets them real bad with the hayfever, mostly first thing in the morning and at present even worst at night! But its the stuffy, blocked and runny nose that makes her gag and is almost sick. She hasn't been sick as of yet but almost. Are you sure its not the mucus that runs down the back of his throat that is making him sick?

mizzimojo, you make a very good point. I'm still suffering the wicked migraine that befell me yesterday. As I posted above, for me, it is a combo of things, but with this one, definitely environmental allergies involved because the left side of my nose, the post nasal drip running and draining down the back of my nose will not stop (despite nasal spray last night).

I have had post nasal drip make me sick to my stomach. Not sick enough to throw up, but then I'm a big person, not a wee guy with a wee tummy filling up with the guck. It has made me nauseous enough that I have had to take a stomach pill for it.

Just all that guck running into your stomach rather than coming out in a quick sneeze, yes, definitely makes me sick to my stomach with always, I guess the potential to throw up.

thanks for posting.

William has improved with regular doses of antihistamine and nasel sprays. His headache struck as being a migrane as it didnt improve much after vomiting.

I am sure that his reaction was not caused in any way by food, or by food colourings. Have had a long chat with allergy doc about that and he is of the opinion that he does not react to food colourings. His new type of daily antihistamine is not causing any reaction, which is good. We are having some thunderstorms today , and the heavy rain fall may help the pollen count. The smog this week caused by the sudden good weather is creating a large problem for the asthmatics in the UK. The advice is to avoid exercise if you are asthmatic in this weather.

Sarah, any history of migraines in your family?

Could Will's migraine have been separate from his environmental allergies? And not triggered by a food thing either?

Still waiting to see ped. neurologist re Ember and her migraines - I can't find any identifiable triggers with her (that doesn't mean anything), but feel so horrible to see a child so wee suffering.
