confused

I have persistent fluid in the back of my throat and it feels like its coming from my nose, any idea if this could be sinus?

Re: confused

It's most likely post nasal drip from some sinus issue. If you cough up any yellow or green fluid you could have some sort of infection. Persistent post nasal drip is most commonly from sinus inflammation, infection, or allergy.

If there is any pain or swollen glands it could be something else.

Re: confused

Then if it lasts (or has lasted) more than a couple of weeks you might want to see your regular doc. Depending on what they find, they may refer you either an allergist or an ENT.

Re: confused

Also, if you wanted to experiment with some things first you could try cleaning up your diet a little (if it isn't already healthy). You could decrease things that many people have sensitivities to like wheat and lactose, and increase fresh fruit and veggies.

An over the counter saline spray can often be helpful as well.

Re: confused

Good. You'll probably have good results from that. Include some amount of citrus of any kind with that if it is available to you.

Yes, I agree. Are you a doctor by any chance?
