Do spring and summer allergies increase your COPD symptoms?

Does anyone find that the spring and summer allergies increase their COPD symptoms?

Since having pneumonia in Feb of this year, I’ve noticed my hayfever symptoms worsen along with my COPD…I’ve felt unwell most of the time and am feeling really upset…Any advice would be greatly appreciated….Thanks!

    Hi Calan3
    That is something that I experience.
    Have you talked with your doctor to see what he or she would say, or diagnose regarding this? I would be interested in knowing what you find out.
    I hope that you get some relief soon.
    Alesandra posted a link for you that has very good information.
    I hope you have a breathe-easy night/day.
