      Hello Lynn, Headaches are a common hayfever symptom that can be difficult to live with and frustrating to experience. They can appear as a result of an inflammation in our sinus cavities, causing a sensation of pressure that eventually leads to a headache. I hope this helps.

      Hi Claire, since your symptoms are seasonal it is more likely that this is down to Hayfever. However, as your symptoms are severe we would recommend you see your doctor so they can give you a formal diagnosis and discuss the possible treatment options for you going forward.
