Yes: Yes, seasonal/perennial allergies can definitely make breathing worse, especially if you have IgE or allergic induced asthma. Maximizing control of both upper and lower airways will keep you from progressing to a full blown exacerbation. See Allergist for further workup and evaluation to determine if you are suffering from asthma related symptoms.
