Hay Fever, Coeliac Disease And The AstraZeneca Covid-19 Vaccine

I am 73 and was diagnosed as a coeliac at 50.

I am fairly sure, I have suffered from hay fever all my life, but usually I can control it.

This year, it has been particularly bad and I asked my GP about it last night. He indicated it had been a bad year.

I then said that as being a coeliac I have a strong immune system and from what I have read, the AstraZeneca Covid-19 vaccine also boosts the immune system.

I just wonder, if my coeliac disease and the vaccine are both attacking the hay fever and making me feel, so much worse than in any other year.

Certainly, all I want to do, is lie down!

I’m certainly so much worse than I was last year, when Covid-19 was the same, but I hadn’t been vaccinated.

The only time my eyes felt so bad was sometime around 2000, when they were so sore, I had to have an operation to remove polyps.

This could have been a few years after I went gluten-free, which would surely have boosted my immune system.

  1. Unrelated to hay fever, my daughter was telling me about a guy she knows who is coeliac, has been diagnosed since childhood, and he has had covid despite having had first vaccine dose, and he now has long covid and is really unable to do anything much at all. Not sure of his age, but suspect a similar age to me or a bit older.

    My hay fever is fine because I haven’t been going out aside from medical appointments – just been for one this morning and came home looking like Barney The Purple Dinosaur.
