In brief: Not specific

Allergies make your eyes itch.
Painful eyes can be a symptom of many illnesses - some more serious than allergy - viral meningitis, for example. The same goes for feeling tired. This is a known but uncommon symptom of allergic rhinitis. Infections can also make you feel tired. Symptoms that persist for several days or are getting worse are best handled by seeing your doctor promptly.
