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.
Oil of wild oregano helps a lot. It is suppossed to boost the immune system, combat allergies, & destroy bad bacteria living in our nice warm, moist sinus areas (argh!) I asked my trusty local health food store owner to select a good brand for me. We live in a wet climate where the water table is often up to ground level - in an old, damp, cracky, dust-prone farm house - so I bought an air cleaner (no central heating, therefore no furnace filters). In the past I would let my condition slide, but now it has reached the point where I will become dizzy & unable to work if I do not nip it in the bud. Plain old Robitussin consisting of guifenison is a life saver when the allergy monsters are attacking in my area. I love this board. DON'T GIVE UP. Patty
