Apparently there is a link between Asthma and allergies like Hayfever (Allergic Rhinitis) and depression. So, to all of those that are currently depressed, do you have any of these?
Please answer only for known conditions not for ones you suspect yourself, and don't include chronic lung problems of a different sort etc. The 'no' answers are just as desired so if you don't have either please take the time to select 'no'.

Absolutely i can relate to this. I've had depression spouts and most definitely anxiety caused through my allergic rhinitis. Theres things i cannot do now like drive my car too far on holidays etc and can't sit in packed places. My head would whizz because of congestion and instead of myself telling me its just congestion I've let it spiral out of control and its kind of ruined part of my life. Bad sinus have a lot to answer for.

I have hay fever. I developed it late in life a few years after I had severe clinical depression. Before I was diagnosed with hay fever, I went to the doctor because I sometimes developed severe coughing spells when I entered a crowded room such as a conference hall or cinema. The doctor did not say what caused the problem but she gave me some tablets which seemed to help. Incidentally my doctor gave me the same tablets for the coughing spells as she later gave me for hay fever.

My depression and hay fever both started when I was 13
