People with allergic rhinitis rate their overall health significantly lower than individuals without nasal allergies. Compared with the general population, more people with AR complain of difficulty getting to sleep, waking up during the night, lack of a good night's sleep, or a combination of these, as a result of their nasal symptoms. More than half of individuals with AR describe their symptoms as impacting daily life a lot or to a moderate degree. More adults with AR report that their health limits them from doing well at work compared with adults without nasal allergies, and their estimated productivity drops by an average of 20% on days when their nasal symptoms are at their worst.
