There are three main reasons why allergies can make you feel tired.
1. Immune System Response
The first reason is the allergies themselves can just make you feel awful. You can get brain fog, you can feel like you have to sneeze, and you're congested. And a lot of times, it just makes people want to go back to bed.
2. Decreased Ability to Sleep
The second reason is that allergies can actually affect your ability to sleep. So if your nose is congested, and you're just congested and sneezy, you're not going to get good sleep. And the next day you're also going to be tired.
3. Sedating Allergy Treatments
And the third reason that a lot of people don't think about is most of the time when you have environmental allergies, you're treating yourself with antihistamines like Zyrtec, Claritin, or Benadryl. And these can often be sedating for certain patients. So allergies can absolutely make you feel tired.
