Cold and sneezing 24/7 for the past two weeks?

I'm pretty sure its not a cold- its been at least two weeks, and I'm especially sneezy in the evening. The other day I didn't sneeze all day, and then I had some cocoa and sneezed about 8 times, so I eliminated it, but doing so hasn't eliminated the problem, although it may have alleviated it slightly.

Nontheless, I'm stuffy-nosed and sneezing 20 times a day. I've never really had allergies since going paleo, and if anything the sneezing is worse inside than outside. What could this be? Please help a girl out, its driving me insane and I am getting a bit worried.

I have no major issues, although I recently recovered from majorly impaired intestinal permeability. I take no supplements except glutamine and liquid vitamin D.

If it's already warm where you are- then check the AC units (if you can)- this is where legionnaire's disease starts. Bacteria... (http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/legionnairesdisease.html) I did mean furnace- lots of times at the end of the season the filter stays for just a little too long (same thing with the beginning when the duct work is cleared). If you're in an office, or don't have immediate access to the heating/air conditioning and can't get fresh air, then I suggest a fan with an ionizer option. I have one going in my house almost year 'round... out of characters!

So...I'm going to expose myself as woefully stupid when it comes to handy things like this, but do you mean furnace as in fireplace or as in air conditioning/heater? I'm not using any sort of heat source, its already quite hot where I live.

I only rarely eat dairy- so, not that.

Try changing your furnace filter? This is the Spring transition- lots of molds and things already flying around. Maybe try a fan w an ionizer on it if you can't access your heat source and it's forced air?

I am just finishing a 2 week long cold... and I am someone who is never sick! I think there is a nasty one out there. I was stuffy and coughing a lot.

Otherwise, it could possibly some sort of allergy. Do you eat dairy now? You could try eliminating some foods but it would odd that it came on so suddenly.
