We're looking forward to cooler weather, but with it comes a big spike in allergens in the air.
Ragweed season is taking off and sending people to the doctor at twice the normal rate, says nurses at the Allergy and Asthma Clinic.
Between the sneezing, itching and coughing allergies can make those who have them pretty miserable.
"It doesn't feel good that's for sure," laughs Moncie Wright.
Wright visits the Allergy and Asthma Center when she just can't take it anymore.
"You wake up in the morning feeling terrible. You might not be able to breathe, at night you can't breathe. It definitely hinders every part of your life," she said.
And she's not alone. For many allergy season is about to reach full swing.
"The ragweed is just starting now so the next two to three months will be bad," said Dr. N.J. Amar.
While seasonal allergies aren't often life or death, they can kill your quality of life. And one out of every three people has them, even if they don't know it.
"Even the doctors get allergies, everyone gets allergies," laughs Dr. Amar while pointing to himself.
In fact, we caught one of his staff members getting her shot on Wednesday. But they aren't exclusive to adults, doctors know allergies can hit you at any time, at any age.
"My stomach hurts and my throat feels dry," said 7-year-old Adreianna Murphy, whose allergies have led to asthma.
For more mild cases over the counter drugs like Claritin, Zyrtec and Allegra can help. For more severe cases doctors recommend shots that range in strength.
Moncie endures an uncomfortable test before she can get the shots. That way she can get back to her normal life.
"It kind of keeps me from doing what I need to do as a grad student at Baylor," she said.
With less distraction and discomfort, even in the height of the season.
