Ranvir Singh suffers from hayfever live on Good Morning Britain

If you’re a hay fever sufferer in the UK, you may have noticed that symptoms are particularly bad at the moment.

From scratchy eyes to a streaming nose and constant sneezing, hay fever can be a massive annoyance at the best of times, but the Met Office has warned that “particularly potent” pollen is causing symptoms that are worse than normal.

Along with that, Allergy UK has also warned of a new phenomenon called thunderstorm asthma, where hay fever symptoms become more severe with turbulent weather.

With all of that to contend with, hay fever sufferers have had no choice but to find the humour in their predicament and share in the misery with other sufferers online.

Amid the horrid conditions at the moment, one person tweeted their favourite video of a fellow sufferer raging about the “real pandemic” that is hay fever.

In the video, the man fumed: “Sweet as a nut, just left my house ready to get on with the day. Then bosh, I feel like I’ve done 12 rounds with Tyson Fury.”

One Twitter user questioned: "Who needs opps when there’s hayfever."

Someone else found out their sister had taken the hayfever medication with them when they left, causing utter despair.
