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.
Hi, I've been having a similar problem for just over two years now. In the beginning I was given anti-biotics (amoxil and augmentim), anti-histamines and nasal sprays with no effect and then was recommended to an ENT who did bad things to me. He tried a lot of old school methods which were extremely unpleasant such as the membrane reduction and flushing my sinuses out. This was all in the first six months and since then I've just been living with it. I was finding it too depressing to seek any more treatment with no improvements.

I did have a CT scan early on which concluded that I had no sinus issues (and I've never even remotely had a sinus problem before) but its felt like the problem has always been treated as a sinus issue which I don't think it is - but I've no medical specialist. I just came back from overseas and I was living in some cold climates and the problem had become worse which is why today I went back to a doctor to get recommended to another ENT. the appointment is not till next month.

Has anyone had any success in treatment? please post or may know someone that can help... Its been affecting every aspect of my life, physically, emotionally. Its becoming very hard to deal with.
