Allergy Sufferers Can’t Sleep
The Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America and Teva Respiratory said the survey also found:
— 57 percent said they’ve experienced difficulty concentrating at work.
— 61 percent said they cannot enjoy the outdoors with their children as much as they would like due to their nasal allergies.
— 71 percent indicated they typically only treat their nasal allergies when they are experiencing symptoms or a flare-up.
— 48 percent said their nasal allergy symptoms, such as nasal congestion and sneezing, also interrupted their partner’s sleep.
“This survey further reinforces that although many people are significantly impacted by their nasal allergies, they are doing very little to avoid the onset of their burdensome symptoms,” Bill McLin, president and of AAFA, said in a statement. The survey is part of Ditch the Drip: Get Serious about Nasal Allergies, an educational program featuring Misty May-Treanor, three-time Olympic beach volleyball gold medalist and nasal allergy sufferer.
