HELP only 16 yrs old wierd mouth symptoms :(

Hi

For the last month, i've been getting a constant Post nasal drip (mucus) from the back of my throat which I have to spit out like every 1 minute, the mucus is clear, bubbly and incredibly glue like (it sticks to absolutely anything Yuk!)

Also, I have a constant yellowish/whiteish, and sometimes a greenish tint coating at the back of my tongue, it is incredibly thick and I brush every day (with occasional mouthwash), but it continues

Along with the coating, there is a constant foul taste in my mouth and throat, it kinda tastes like acid (I think this "taste" is due to the coating of my tongue, I think i'm always tasting the coating on my tongue and its disgusting)

Furthermore, i've got excessive bubbly and frothy saliva which makes it hard to talk to pppl and just constantly takes over my mouth (sigh). Although I belive this saliva "could" be from my body trying to neautralise all the mucus and coating on my tongue and throat, therefore creating more and more saliva, but i don't know for sure.

Sometimes, the saliva is incredibly sticky and along with the sticky mucus from my throat, it is the worst feeling ever

Finally, my hard palate (the bit behind my front teeth) kinda tingles just slightly if I place my tongue on it, which is rly annoying cos my tongue is there all the time. I also have some pressure on my front two teeth but not much

From time to time, I have a bad cough too

I've been to the doctors a few times, had antibiotics for sinuses- did nothing, now they think its acid reflux?? I've just started meds for it a few days ago but no improvement yet and i dont have any heartburn

I've had a lot of sinus issues in the past, but havnt really caused on going symptoms like these, could this be from my sinues?? like an undetectable infection or soemthing?? antibiotics did nothing

could acid reflux cause this????

I dnt know if this is related but all these problems started when I used a new toothpaste, which kinda dried out my mouth a lot for a week, and these issues started after. But i dont think it is because of toothpaste lol.


Im totally depressed bcos i hav to go through this everyday . im starting to perform badly in school as well and hav A LOT of anxiety. + i think anxiety is making all the symptoms worse i cant talk bcos of the excess mucus/saliva and taste in my mouth

what could cause all of this??? sinus?/ acid relfux??

is there any cure? or home remedies i can use to ATLEAST mask the symptoms, bcos they are depressing me soooo much

thanx a lot guys - from a very depressed teenager

Re: HELP only 16 yrs old wierd mouth symptoms :(

Could be the antibiotic didn't get the entire infection, or you have developed a bit of a yeast infection of the mouth...Oral Thrush. Does your tongue have a white film on it? Many time antibiotics cause this to happen as although they kill off the bad bacteria, they kill of the good, causing Candida, which will also affect your stomach.

Try using a good Probiotic Acidophilus for awhile and see if it helps. Don't use a mouth wash with alcohol in it, try Act. Another thing you can try is a small amount of peroxide in a small glass of warm water as a rinse 2-3 times a day.

Good luck, let us know how your doing...JJ...

Hi a good eye ear nose throat doctor might help determine the difficulty.

Try stopping all dairy for a couple of weeks and see if that improves it. Dairy causes a ton of mucus. Stopping dairy will stop the sinus problems.
