My day today was enhanced by a multi-hour anxiety attack which happened to coincide with a bout of pollen-induced spluttering and wheezing.

When I got back to my computer, on a whim I Googled pollen anxiety.

And much to my surprise, this popped up:

Changes in Severity of Allergy and Anxiety Symptoms Are Positively Correlated in Patients with Recurrent Mood Disorders Who Are Exposed to Seasonal Peaks of Aeroallergens

In other words, if you have depression or bipolar as well as anxiety (and I'm guessing I'm not the only one here who falls into this category), then tree-pollen may be associated with spikes in your anxiety levels.

Anyway, I have no idea if this explains today's anxiety attack, but I thought I'd share the info in case it's of interest.
