Spring is a Headache for Allergy Sufferers

Stop suffering from allergy headaches with these easy solutions for headache relief.

(Vocus) April 14, 2010 -- Spring is in full bloom and many Americans are beginning to experience the discomfort and health problems triggered by allergies. According to the Allergy and Asthma Foundation of America, an estimated 50 million Americans have allergies, so for many the arrival of spring is not signified by warmer temperatures and blossoming flowers, but by sniffling, sneezing, wheezing, itchy, watery eyes and especially headaches.

An allergy is a response of the body to a substance, which is not always harmful to the body, but which triggers an immune reaction which can cause many different symptoms and diseases in a predisposed person. This reaction can affect any part of the body, causing various symptoms, including allergy headaches. However, there are a lot people suffering from this type of headache, but don't know the real cause for it. What can one do about these seasonal allergy headaches?

Alexander Mauskop, MD, founder of the New York Headache Center and creator of Dr. Mauskop’s Migralex™, the strongest combination medication for headaches available without a prescription, has great advice for those at risk for allergy headaches. His suggestions include:

- Identify if your headache is due to allergies: If your headache occurs at specific times or places, accompanied by a stuffy nose, clear discharge or itchy eyes, this is a major warning that you are experiencing an allergy headache. If you think you have a sinus headache, in fact you might be wrong.

- Determine what is causing your allergy: Undergo diagnostic tests or medical examination to uncover what type of allergy you have. This will help to find an effective allergy treatment, which in turn will alleviate headache pain.

- Keep an allergy medication on hand: If your headache is triggered by seasonal or respiratory allergies, consider taking an over-the-counter allergy medication, such as antihistamines (Allegra, Benadryl, Claritin), decongestants (Afrin, Sudafed) or nasal irrigation (Neti pot, SaltAir). By taking allergy medication to ease symptoms, you can potentially avoid a headache all together. If you do get a headache, take Dr. Mauskop’s Migralex for relief.
