Hi,
Welcome to ehealthforum,
If your allergic symptoms are at your work place, you should consider getting allergen test done to rule out any allergies to materials at your work place. Discuss your symptoms with your treating doctor/healthcare provider and go ahead with thorough evaluation done to look for the underlying cause for your symptoms. Treatment as indicated (based on examination findings and investigations results) would be started to help you control your symptoms. Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/healthcare provider and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately.
Take care.

I don't think it is anything at work because it is the same time everynight at work. only at work. I think it is situational stress, anxiety. you agree?
