Question Simple question! Need help!!

Hi, I've had nasal drip for 2 years and I have seen an ENT for months and there is nothing he can do for me. (I have no allergies, and no allergy meds have ever worked the slightest for me).

He never mentioned Acid Reflux, and my nasal drip is always very globby white/clear. I do not have any burning or heartburn.

Is this true?:

Allergic nasal drip = green/brown/discolored nasal drip

Acid reflux/silent reflux = white/clear nasal drip

No it isn't true. Green or discolored nasal drainage is an infection. Clear is allergy or some other condition which could be reflux, GERD, etc.

Re: Simple question! Need help!!

so I probably have acid reflux since I'm not alergic to anything and no alergie meds work for me?

Very possibly. I'd see your GP or a gastro doc.

Mine right now is literally 24/7, I need to spit up every 30 seconds - 1 minute.

Re: Simple question! Need help!!

Do you have constant heartburn ? When you do have reflux more on than off your body Produces a lot of mucus to protect the throat causing a lot of post nasal drip as for 24/7 I do not know

No heartburn. My guess is it might be silent reflux.

I had HORRIBLE acid reflux; bought some aloe vera pills and took heavy doses of it and now no longer need medication. You can buy the juice and it is all natural and does not conflict with medications.

I was using Digestinol and was following the directions. They come with a booklet as to how much to take, but to answer your question, I took 3 at a time and did it 3 times a day. If this is too expensive, I am sure your health food store can help you with some strong aloe vera juice or pills.
