Allergic reactions

Have any of you had allergic/hayfever symtoms while in bout, my husband keeps having these on top of eveything else. He has been in bout since Feb and has taken two Zomig nasal per day since then.  At the moment is coming off Gabapentin slowly as that has not worked.  These reactions have happened from time to time and are like a severe hayfever attack.  We have mentioned this to Oxygen company and respiritary nurse but they cant understand this.  He does suffer hayfever mildly during summer months but not as bad as this but not this time of year.

Two of the symptoms of CH are a blocked or runny nose and a reddening and watering of the eye/s, so if that's what you mean by hayfever symptoms, then yes they are part of CH and they can be quite extreme; some folk even have a drooping eye on their attack side.
