  • It is very possible that it's allergy related, by pollen or something else.

  • Also very symptomatic of mono... may want to get tested... unfortunately, not a lot can be done except for a script for steroids.

  • yep, when LO gets a bad allergy attack it turns into what they treat as a sinus infection.. We hit the pedi often from the start of spring until fall

  • Most definatley!! It could also be a sinus infection. I have horrible allergies and get numerous sinus infections every year. I just drag when I'm having a bad flare up. I could sleep forever and still feel tired.
