I suffer from really bad Hay-fever every year around this time, I usually take Hay Fever tablets but they don't help overtime. I have heard of this injection for Hay fever that works for 3 months but I don't think its available on the NHS or I could be wrong??
Has anyone had experience with this?

"Immunotherapy or desensitisation treatment may work if your symptoms are severe and are not controlled by other hay fever medicines. If you want this type of treatment, you need to go to a specialist allergy clinic after referral from your GP.
Initially you have to have an injection every week or fortnight at the clinic and then regularly for up to two years.
It involves pollen being injected into your body, so you may have an allergic response. There have been a few cases of severe reactions to desensitisation injections. They should only be given in specialist centres and only if your symptoms can't be controlled by other methods." [source]
Have you tried everything? I was on the same antihistamines for four years and they started making me feel exhausted all the time so my GP switched me to a different type and I got an inhaler (can't have steroid sprays because I already get horrific nosebleeds) and it's made such a difference.
