Re: Constant Mucus and Throat clearing.
I have a great ENT,and I think I will go back to him here soon and have a chat.
He dx me with vasomoto rhinitis, which is what i have, but its one of those disorders that basically states the obvious in the name that sounds complicated,, vasomotor,,,rhinitis,,, or "runny nose, of unknown cause"
He gave me astelin, nasal spray and humibid, its like prescription strength mucinex. Didnt help. He sent me to an allergist to have a RAST test done, and did a CT of my sinuses. Eveything was normal, and he said he wasnt supprised, he said that what ever this is causing the mucus its not sinuits and that he would help me try and find the right doctor... I thought that was nice, I said a psychitrist, and he laughed and said, ya thats it..
I had a toxic chemcial exposure to arsenic, before this happend so i think that something in my body may be reacting immune wise or thyroid wise, because the thyroid malfunctioned after i got poisoned, and also it may be due to oxidative damage, which is beyond the realm of an ENT,,,, i will go look at the post sent to me on environmental toxicity...
I wonder if there are any enviornmental doctors around or if there is such a thing? Im making things too complicated again, i think,,,,
im also studying to become a nurse and Im trying to fix myself too...
Im thinking about trying nexium to see if it helps...im scarred of the side effects, one of them are headaches and I already have excrutiating ones.
