I seem to be allergic to work.

Ok, joking aside, why am I always sneezing and sniffling while at work, and nowhere else? Am I allergic to something here? And if so, what can I do about it?

So this spring I noticed that, whenever I'm in my office, I'm sneezing and sniffling like crazy. I figured it was just allergies but.... six months and two season changes later, it's still happening. It doesn't happen outside the office or during the weekend. So basically it's like I'm sick 8 hours out of every day. Every day, someone asks if I'm "coming down with something". It really, really sucks.
I've worked here for years and never had this problem before. The only thing I'm allergic to is cats, and none of my coworkers have cats. There's no construction going on in my office. I'm in NYC. My office isn't particularly dirty or dusty. No one wears strong perfume. I drink water all day and bring my lunch from home. I'm otherwise a healthy person who gets sick maybe once a year in the winter. I'm completely at a loss here. It's so bad. I feel like I"m always sick but I swear I'm not! Help!
