BROOKLYN - Saturday marks the beginning of spring and with that comes the dreaded allergy season.

Many are already experiencing the stuffy, sneezy feeling that comes along with increased pollen in the air. However, despite what many may think, it's not all in your head.

According to recent research people are experiencing higher levels of pollen for a longer period of time.

Researchers have discovered that pollen counts have steadily increased over the past 26 years. They also found that the length of time trees are pollinating gets longer with each year.

Doctors say that the normal peak for pollen season is between late April and early May. However, this year, one doctor says she's booked solid through the month of March.
