I was suffering severe pain in my forehead a couple months ago and was told by my gp it's my sinusitis. Days later I had a ct scan that found brain cancer. Advice is please don't always allow doctors to label a headache as hayfever or sinusitis.

it's bad enough I can tell when.the 24hrs is up on the tablet plus nasal spray. I suffer all year round & when the wattle starts I feel like crawling up in bed all day. My throat is even affected by it. Some days I nearly do the hospital trip as it feels like it's swelling. I even use a asthma spray for the wheezing

Being susceptible to hay fever. No offence but linking that to so called climate change is ridiculous

The increasing no of sufferers equates to the increasing no of children being raised in cities and sterile apartment blocks. The kids need to get out into the country and smell the roses to inoculate their resistance.

Climate change is also being blamed for peoples stupidity

If rising levels of carbon dioxide and homeless polar bears aren't enough to convince people to meaningfully combat climate change, maybe hay fever will do the trick.

I am sure it will not be that bad. They have been wrong about every epidemic that has involved climate change. I cannot wait to see what the final numbers are compared to past years.

This is backed by science and numbers. It may not be directly related to climate change but there will be higher cases of hay fever that you can count on.

Unlike pollen, however, molds do not have a season. They are present throughout the year in most of the United States.

The article I was reading kept mentioning how it will effect mostly in Europe. Does anyone know why only Europe?

Our results indicate that controlling the current European ragweed invasion will become more difficult in the future as the environment will be more favorable for ragweed growth and spread, highlighting the need for the development of effective and regionally co-ordinates eradication programmer.

Be careful what you ask for. Most governments are going to spray some kind of chemical to control the population of the weeds. We all know what will happen after that, people will start getting sick. I would rather have allergies than cancer.

The effects will be felt everywhere. They are focusing on north Europe because this area has been getting warmer over the past few decades fueling the rise in hay fever over that area.

Around 400 million people worldwide suffer from some form of hay fever, with current rates as high as 40% of the European population and 30% in the US.

Climate change could cause new hay fever misery for millions of people across Europe -- according to a new report. Hay fever is a common allergic condition that is caused by an allergy to pollen -- including tree pollen (released during spring), grass pollen (released during the end of spring and beginning of summer) or weed pollen (especially released late autumn).

The problem is likely to increase in countries with an existing ragweed problem, such as in Hungary and the Balkans. But the greatest proportional increases will happen in countries including Germany, Poland and France.

Depending on the type of pollen, hay fever can be at its worst. If during the spring, tree pollen is released. At the end of spring and the start of summer, grass pollen is at its peak whereas weed pollen or ragweed are released late in the summer up until autumn.

Global warming is especially bad news for the millions of asthmatics in the United States whose asthma attacks are triggered by allergens.

So thankful I have never been allergic to anything, never had allergies, and on top of that I have never had the chicken pox. Doing good!
