Hay Fever - Symptoms

Common symptoms of hay fever include a tender, itchy, runny nose, accompanied by sneezing and coughing. The sinuses may also begin to swell, causing the eustachian (pronounced you-STAY-shee-un) tube to close up. The eustachian tube connects the inner ear to the throat. The closing of the eustachian tube causes a feeling of stuffiness. Mucus may drip from the sinuses into the throat, causing the throat to become sore. Hay fever may also cause red, itchy, watery eyes. Fatigue and headache are also common.
