Re: How long does Post Nasal Drip last?
Oh my goodness, I came to this board just for this issue!!!! I was sick in the beginning of the week with a cold. I had a fever, chills, aches, etc. for about two days. Now that those have gone away, I have stuffiness and post nasal drip. My throat is sore ALLLLLLL day and night. I can't sleep well at night. I wake up gagging and coughing. Just plain coughing during the day makes me gag. I can't take it anymore!
The worst part of this is that I am 14 weeks pregnant so most medicines are out of the question. I can take Sudifed but it is a joke! It doesn't do a darn thing for me. Tylenol helps a little but I feel like I need something to dry up my sinuses.
I am hoping this is allergies and not a bacterial infection. It is hard to tell. Is there a way to tell the difference?
I think it is just that time of year - allergies!!!! I usually suffer a little bit from them, but I have NEVER suffered this bad. I am sure it is b/c I am pregnant. Will there be any relief in sight? I am thinking about closing all my windows in my house and turning the A/C on just to avoid the outside air. Ugh!
