My Nose Needs Vog

I'm prone to allergies and my attacks can last up to two days. The entire month of heavy vog we've been having I was fine; my eyes didn't burn, my nose didn't run, I didn't have any sneezing attacks. So Monday I hopped a plane on my way for a weeks' vacation in Wilmington, North Carolina, where my daughter lives. Took a hop to Maui and then flew to L.A. where I changed planes and headed for Charlotte. About half way through the flight to Charlotte my sinus passages practically swelled closed. While landing I thought my ear drums were going to burst. When I got off the place I started sneezing, my nose was running like a faucet and my eyes were itching like crazy. So I took a double dose of Claritin, double dose of Sudafed AND a shot of my prescription antihistamine nasal spray. Landing in Wilmington at least my nasal passages were open so there was no ear pain, but the entire rest of the day, and first half of the next day, I was still having severe allergy symptoms. Is it possible I was addicted to vog and going though withdrawals?

Mahalo, Harry
