      It may be tough to tell if you are suffering from seasonal allergies, the flu, a cold, or the coronavirus (COVID-19). I read this informative article that discusses the differences between them all. I don’t know about y’all, but here in Texas, the tree pollen has been horrible. Seasonal allergies are the norm as Spring blows in. I hope that y’all find this helpful.

      Have you had times when you are curious about symptoms that are experiencing? It can be difficult when we are concerned about COVID-19. This is only helpful tips; if you have concerns, please reach out to your medical team.

      As we have been in a heavy allergy season and coming into the flu season, I wanted to bring this up again to see if anyone has any thoughts. Personally, this week, I had my hubby tested for COVID because his seasonal allergies were combined with a few other symptoms that were common with COVID. he suffers from seasonal allergies twice each year and requires allergy shots. This time, the new symptoms concerned his doctor and me, so they tested him. Thankfully this was negative, but it is just a warning for others, too.

      It is difficult to determine if a new symptom is COVID-related, allergy, flu, or for us, PH. This is why I decided to share this article again, in case some missed it.

      @jenc this is such a valuable topic right now. I’m so glad your husband tested negative for Covid. As you know, Aidan has had us concerned two times so I know what it’s like to fear the worst. Is anything helping his symptoms? I’m so sorry he isn’t feeling well.

      Cullen and I have had our what if’s too. We have days when we feel fine then out of the blue our throats will hurt, a slight cough develops followed by a few sneezes. This year it’s hard not to freak out when this happens. We both often react to change of season too so I believe that has been the culprit.

      I’m the only one in the family who has received the flu shot so far. They all need to get it ASAP…especially Cullen! Have you and your hubby received yours?

      Thanks, @colleensteele; last week, his doctor gave him Prednisone, an inhaler, a steroid shot, and a nasal spray. Sadly, as I feared, it was too many steroids at once. I tried to tell him that, but he wanted to feel better. He is feeling better, thanks. But he was unable to work all week. The side effects of Prednisone and the others took a toll, so now we are trying to flush that all out.

      He continues to take allergy meds because it hasn’t helped those symptoms as much as just a shot usually does.

      I did get my flu shot on 10/5. He has not yet because they are doing them this year at his company, so that should be soon.

      Does everyone in your house always get one? My hubby does not usually, but this year he is. He has been a bit stubborn, lol.

      I am happy that it was informative for you, @gward. How are you doing? Do you tend to have seasonal allergies?
