Fibromyalgia and Allergic Rhinitis

Allergic Rhinitis is the body’s response to allergens. Many Fibro sufferers report symptoms that can range from mild side effects like sneezing to more critical symptoms like anaphylaxis. As the word Rhinitis suggests, it is all about the impact on your nose.

With pollen allergies specifically, it feels similar to the symptoms of a cold. Common Allergic Rhinitis triggers include food, dust, and smoke. But the most common culprit is pollen.

In Fibro, mast (and to a lesser extent glial cells) are overactive. Overactive mast cells cause the body to secrete histamines. This often results in what we call Fibro-Histo-Fever … resulting in a persistent itchy throat, sensitivity to pollen, skin rashes and sensitivity to certain smells (in particular, strong perfumes and smoke). Pain in the nasal region without exposure to allergens can also be a sign of Allergic Rhinitis.
