In brief: Quality of life
Although the primary symptoms are nasal congestion, sneezing, and runny nose, frequently there are eye symptoms, like itching and redness.
There can be sleep disruption, fatigue, and irritability. There is frequent loss of production at work or school. The adverse effects of hay fever are underestimated and should be taken seriously.
