Why Hay Fever Makes You So Fatigued and Sleeping Badly


| By Scharon

Hay fever is your body's reaction to pollen released from some grasses, plants and trees that are in bloom. The pollen causes allergic symptoms, such as sneezing, itchy and watery eyes, and a stuffy nose. But why do you feel so tired when you have hay fever, and why do you sleep poorly? Here's why, and some tips to sleep better:

Why you feel so tired when you have hay fever.

  1. Disrupted sleep: The symptoms of hay fever, such as a stuffy nose and itchy eyes, can disrupt your sleep and lead to sleep deprivation.

  2. Immune system in action: Your body reacts to the pollen as if it were a threat, resulting in an active immune system that consumes a lot of energy and causes fatigue.

Sleeping poorly due to hay fever

  1. Symptoms interfere with sleep: Sneezing fits, a stuffy nose and itchy eyes can make it difficult to fall asleep and sleep through.

Tips to sleep better with hay fever

  1. Dry inside: During pollen season, hang your laundry indoors to prevent pollen from settling in it.

  2. Wash your hair before bed: Clean your hair thoroughly to prevent pollen from entering your bed.

  3. Change your clothes outside the bedroom: Avoid bringing pollen inside by changing your clothes outside the bedroom.

  4. Rid your bedroom of dust: Keep your bedroom clean to reduce the spread of pollen and dust.

  5. Sleep with the windows closed: Prevent pollen from entering by keeping windows closed at night.

  6. Anti-pollen screens: Consider using special screens that block pollen.

  7. Hay fever tablets and nasal spray: Consider using hay fever tablets and nasal spray, but be aware of possible drowsiness as a side effect.

These tips will hopefully help you sleep better during hay fever season and reduce your daytime fatigue.
