Take the Allergies In America Survey!

The Allergies In America survey is now closed!

More than 50 million Americans are living with allergies. Allergens can take shape in many forms, with widespread and serious effects on our well-being and mental health. For example, respiratory allergies can sour a spring day, insect allergens can come on suddenly, and latex, food, and medical allergens can bring great stress for people with allergies and caregivers alike.

Allergies and Migraines: What is the connection?

For people living with migraine, allergens can trigger migraines and debilitating bodily responses. Current research supports that there is a relationship between allergies and migraine. A 2012 case study found a correlation between migraine, particularly without aura and allergic rhinitis (or hay fever). The correlation became more powerful with increasing age. The correlation between migraine and allergens is also supported by our 9th Annual Migraine In America survey data, in which 61 percent of 4,693 respondents indicated also living with allergies.1

While the connection between migraine and allergies is known, there is still much that is unclear about how people live with allergies. To better understand how people are affected by allergens, we are fielding our 2021 Allergies In America survey. By taking our survey, you can bring awareness to the realities of life with allergies.
