Considerations

Seasonal allergies can cause a great deal of sneezing and coughing. Both can cause stress on the body and may result in a tight feeling in the chest, which can be uncomfortable or very painful.

Effects

Seasonal allergies can lead to sinusitis, which can cause chest pain and tightness. Some seasonal allergens cause chronic respiratory conditions, and chest pain and tightness may result.

Prevention/Solution

It may be difficult to completely avoid seasonal allergens, but the symptoms can be managed. By keeping doors and windows closed, vacuuming often, avoiding furry and feathered pets, and using proper medication, seasonal allergies need not be a pain in the chest.
