Am I Sick or Do I Have Allergies?

Am I Sick or Do I Have Environment
or Food Allergies?
Does this sound like you?:
  • watery eyes
  • headache
  • sneezing 
  • congestion
  • plugged up ears
  • runny nose
When all you have to go on is symptoms that could be related to allergies or a sinus infection it can be difficult to tell what you are dealing with. 
 
Unless you have a fever you may want to treat these symptoms as seasonal allergies. If you do have a fever you better give us a call to get in to see your doctors or our physician assistant.
 

Many people walk around with chronic allergies, and a low level sinus infection that they have just learned to live with. 

 
So that little sniffle, that nasally voice, if untreated, could turn into a full sinus infection or more, leading to feeling miserable, missing work, or ruining your vacation.
