post nasal drip and anxiety
hello , i have post nasal drip which cause me constant throat clearing,spitting and sometimes suffocation feeling , the suffocation feeling leads me to breath very fast , i use my sternum and i constant blow my nose , i cant catch a break from this , its like spitting-breathing-blowing all the time , its much worse when my nose is dry because i cant blow anything.
I tried some chamomile for a month or so and i somehow got better but now my tonsils got infected again and it drives me mad and chamomile doesnt help very much , i have been tested by doctors and they said that i have anxiety and broke voice due to congestion.
My questions are:
1. the constant blowing and breathing after the suffocation feeling is some form of hyperventilation and is due to anxiety? or is it normall ?
2. the uneasiness when my nose is dry and i cant blow mucus is some kind of anxiety ? am i addicted to blow my nose? (if something like this exists)
3. can you suffocate and die from post nasal drip? or post nasal drip and stuffy nose combined?
i know some questions arent anxiety related but i didnt know where to post this thread.
