Researchers at Columbia University in New York have found that hayfever sufferers are twice as likely to suffer from panic attacks compared with non-sufferers, although Renee Goodwin, who carried out the study, did not find any relationship between hayfever and other mental disorders. The reason for this strange association is not clear, but Goodwin speculates that "there could be a common vulnerability to both".
