Not running-related, because I'm not running at the moment (still trying to shake this tibilalis tendonitis.

Anyway. Does anyone know if the onset of hayfever is in any way connected with age? Since I became an official Old Git, I've been struck with hayfever progressively more and more each year - it started properly about a couple of years ago. I'm 50.

Thanks in advance.

I "grew out of" hayfever and into asthma in my mid-20s and then out of both in my mid-30s, my husband seems to be developing hayfever in his 40s. Make of that what you will!

Yes, it's not uncommon for hay fever symptoms to start in, ahem, middle age.

my hubby is a darn sight older than any of you and developed hay fever a couple of years ago which seems to be getting worse and at the moment has brought him out in major itchiness spreading all over his body and a nasty cough. An *actual real life* doctor has put him on a strength of anti-histamine that makes my eyes water :-o

I never had hayfever until my mid 30s....and now have it all year round - not just pollen, but perfumes, cleaning agent fumes, alcohol hand gel, something in the ventilation at work...

Got something to say?
