I've been trying to search for a good answer to this question, and all the results I'm seeing are for allergies causing tiredness. What I'm trying to figure out is that my usual hayfever, especially the runny nose (very thin liquid today) seems to be much higher today than usual, and the pollen counts seem about on par with the past week or two. I did have a pretty short night's sleep last night, and I was curious whether anyone has noticed allergy symptoms being significantly worse when a person is already tired, or whether I should be more on guard against a cold I might be getting?

Thank you for asking!
Tiredness and fatigue is one common presentation of allergic rhinitis. Get to your allergist and immunologist and let them help you. Avoid allergens and try some recent advancements like sub lingual therapy and subcutaneous therapy for the trouble, it has proved quite effective in recent past.
Take care
