On bad allergy days with nose running and eyes itching I will frequently get an upset stomach. Is there a known connection between the two events.?

In brief: Post nasal drip
Often, patients with a bad post nasal drip from any cause will complain of an upset stomach.

In brief: Probably
Although there isn't a direct link, such as an allergic reaction taking place in the stomach due to inhaled or swallowed allergen, it is widely believed that the postnasal drainage of all the inflammatory secretions from the nose into the stomach causes the discomfort.
See your physician about this - the nasal steroid sprays work the best to reduce the postnasal drip.
