Post Nasal Drip Really Affecting My Life. Please Help.
I know this is a very long post but I would be very grateful if you could read it and provide me some help.
I have been suffering from post nasal drip for about 4 months now and it is really effecting all aspects of my life. Im constantly depressed because I have become anti social because I know this effects my breath. I am constantly hacking up white thick mucus and I cough alot at night when I sleep. I can taste it constantly and my tongue is quite furry and has a white coating on it. I clean it often but it returns in about 5 minutes. I used to be a very socially active and happy person but now I avoid seeing friends and I am really uncomfortable seeing my boyfiend because I know he can smell/taste my bad breath. I think this all started when I got a mild sinus infection which had no symptoms except really bad tasting post nasal drip. I was given amoxil and it went away within 2-3 days but it came back and Ive had it since then. Ive been put on about 6 different antibiotics since amoxil, such as zinnat, eryc,amoxil (again)resprim forte and now my ENT doesnt think i have an infection anymore but i am on rulide and have to stay on it for 3 months for its anti inflammitory effects but no improvemnt so far.
I ve tried nasonex for 2 months, no help and now on beconase but with no improvement. I have no other symptoms, no runny nose, no itchy nose nothing except this PND. I also use nielmed sinus rinse and have seen 3 ENT and about 7 different doctors. I have been blood tested for allergies and all came back negative but i am currently waiting to see an allergy specialist to get a more extensive result, though I doubt I am allergic to anything. I have never had any allergies or sinus problems before this. I am currently seeing a naturopath (about 2 months) but with no improvent. Can anyone help me? I am getting to a point where I am sick of my life. Please help. I dont think i can live like this for much longer.
