In Reply to: Constant Sinus Drainage??? HELP??? posted by Donna on May 11, 2000 at 16:24:57:
: Hi, I am new to this board but I am out here searching to see if anyone else has ever suffer from severe sinus drainage? I am, this spring is the worst for me, It makes me choke and it is so thick that food can get hung in my throat, I am breathing fine, they said it was caused by hayfever and that I needed to take robitussin to thin it out, it has help but I still am having it. Since I moved into my new home I have had a constant sinus problem especially with the drainage and choking feeling. Does anyone else have this kind of problem and has it ever got severe enough that you couldn't not swallow pills, food without worrying about it getting hung in your throat? This problem is really beginning to worry me. I am on allery medicine and just started on Robitussin dm. Any info would help.
You said you just moved into a new home? do you have carpets? if the former owners had pets get them professionally cleaned. do you have a basement? is it moldy? Do you have drop ceilings? this can be a problem they collect dust and dirty and if the ceiling leaked you could have mold and other bacteria living in there. I don't know what your allergies are but these are a few suggestions. Especially just moving into a new home. Any of these things could be contributing to your allergy problem. Good luck
