I also had congestion and was prescribed flonase which helped but I occasionally still got congested. My main problem is <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>post</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>nasal</span></span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>drip</span>. I don't have the regular itchy throat or runny nose but post nasal drip is killing me. The mucus feels like its just stuck in the back of my throat and makes me sick to my stomach. I was also prescribed astelin nasal spray and it helped some but I still get post nasal drip. Is there any other medication out there that would help?
i went to a neurologist to see if there was something wrong in my brain, that came back negative. then it was said that i have <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>post</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>nasal</span></span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>drip</span>. i take rhinacort <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>nasal</span></span> spray and that does not seem to do anythng. now i have this lump in my throat, by the way i went to a gasteroligist and had a bareum sallow test and they found nothing there which leads me to believe that it is my post nasal drip making this happen, possibly irritating my throat and making it feel as though there is a lump.
My doctor put me on amoxicillin which slowly helped. A few days after I finished the ten day treatment, my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>post</span>-<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>nasal</span></span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>drip</span> and sore throat came back. It lasted 2-3 days, then went away. A few days later, it was back, and worse. I went to the doctor again, who said it looked like I had a throat abcess. He gave me omnicef and medrol pack. The sore throat and post-nasal drip got better after those meds, and again, a few days after I finished them, it was back.
Does this go on forever? I have had thick constant <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>post</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>nasal</span></span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>drip</span> for weeks now. This is dreadful. It sits in the back of my throat and won't move. I'm a singer and now can't perform.In the past I've had thin secretions and only when I have been sick or exhausted. I was a smoker for many years but quit 8 years ago but had a "slip" for about two months from extreme stress and started again. I never hydrated myself much at all with water. I went to an ENT...
I have invented the cure for sinusitis, which will get rid of your <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>nasal</span></span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>drip</span>, which may end your chronic throat infection, if that's what you have. However, it involves bending over to get the saline in ALL of your sinuses, which I would not recommend in your condition. Unless you have someone to assist you, and do it outside of the recommended shower. It's risky, but probably not as risky as starving to death. The instructions are called Flip-Turn Sinus Flush on My Journal (friggy).
I was prescribed flonase and an over the counter antihistamine when I came in with a chronic sore throat, occasional tonsil stone and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>post</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>nasal</span></span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>drip</span>. The doctor did a visual inspection and I had nasal polyps. The pain moves around from the base of my nasopharynx, throat, and occasionally in the laryngopharynx. It's lasted about 2 years. A few weeks before I got the chronic sore throat, I had a 3 day-long flu with fever and rash on my chest for a few days. I decided to get a full panel STD test.
I have this problem with gagging, what seems to be caused by <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>post</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>nasal</span></span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>drip</span>. When i wake up i tend to have a dry mucus build up in the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>post</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>nasal</span></span> area of my throat. The thing is when i gagg, trying to free the mucus from my throat, nothing seems to loosen up, which makes me have this feeling of vomiting. These symptoms are 10 fold when i am in any social situation, or have to tend to any type of stressfull situation.
That you have asthma increases the likelihood that you also have rhinitis (nasal inflammation) and/or sinusitis. Having had a normal chest X-ray the first time around is good news and assuming that the recurrence is the same type of illness, it is likely that your X-ray would be normal but, to be on the safe side, especially with your history of smoke and daily use of pot, you should probably have another Chest X-ray.
Everyone of you should at least try Colodial Silver spray or drops. It works for me when my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>post</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>nasal</span></span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>drip</span> gets overwhelming. I purchased mine at a health food store. They offer drops or one with a nasal spray attachment. Please read up on it. Very interesting stuff.
This morning(thursday), I woke up with a sore throat (post <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>nasal</span></span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>drip</span>). I have been getting sinus infections about every other month. My ENT told me that I should be on flonase all of the time, but my nose has been so dry, that when I blow it, there is a little bit of blood in the tissue. I have no allergies, but my nasal passageways seem to be inflamed. I havent taken the flonase in over a month now.
Looks like you have developed a sinus infection which has progressed to a throat infection as well. Sinus infections cause a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>post</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>nasal</span></span> drip where secretions from the nose go backward into the throat and irritate. You will need to consult your primary care physician for proper clinical assessment. In the meantime for relief from your symptoms you could do warm salt gargles and take OTC antihistamines. Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
When I started to take the birth control my hypo symptoms got better, including my post <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>nasal</span></span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>drip</span>. I had a septum surgery to improve breathing but my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>post</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>nasal</span></span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>drip</span> got so bad after that I can not exercise like a normal person. Winter is horrible for me. It is me and tissue everywhere. I sneeze and have a lot of crusting. I have no allergies (I have been tested) and ENT says the dryness produce the excess of mucus. But where is all this dryness coming from? Is it my thyroid?
In the beginning it was mainly chest tightness but now it's developed into <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>post</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>nasal</span></span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>drip</span> which triggers the shortness of breath. I attempted a 5 minute jog + 1 minute of sprinting a few weeks ago and I was on my floor with the nebulizer fighting to breath. All blood work and scans suggest no serious problems. I don't have polyps or anything else that would explain this better.
There are many reasons for <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>post</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>nasal</span></span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>drip</span> and tinnitus. If your nose is still running, could it be sinusitis? Do notice any weird smells from your nose? Headaches? A chronic sinus infection will cause post nasal drip. But it could be that one month with flonase isn't long enough to get your symptoms under control. I would say 2 months would be more reasonable to decide if there is something else. this type of therapy takes a while for things to set in.
The pain went away within two hours yesterday after shots buit woke up this morning and pain is back as well as the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>post</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>nasal</span></span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>drip</span>. The doctor also prescribed me <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>flonase</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>nasal</span></span> spray for the infection but I read the info on it and it says do not take if you have an infection because it is a steroid and it lowers the immune systom. So I'm terrified to use it because I don't want the infection to get even worse. How is it ok to use flonase for bacterial infection?
I have been having such bad congestion, especially at night and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>post</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>nasal</span></span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>drip</span>. ENT said looks like polyp tissue starting to re-grow. GREAT! So I took the 6 day prednisone pack which was great, could smell again for 7 days, along with Leviquin for 14 days. As soon as I was off the prednisone the congestion came back. Now the DR wants me back on Leviquin for another 10 days. Not real happy about this. I also use flonase everyday and saline nasal spray 5 times a day.
Prior to that, I'd had some issues with <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>post</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>nasal</span></span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>drip</span> and dizziness over the years. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>flonase</span> worked wonders for that. When I came down with this infection, the flonase did nothing for me. I never 'overused' flonase, and in fact, I would take breaks from it, so it doesn't seem like I should've been resistant to it. Since this infection, I have never been the same.
I have been to an ENT, no concern apparently for a CT scan. I have been to an allergist and he seems to think that my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>nasal</span></span> area is being compromised by "something"...possibly chemicals??????????? I will post any further info and wish us all luck in finding the never ending solution.
I have had postnasal <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>drip</span> for 7 years. My ENT tried <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>flonase</span>, Astelin and Allegra-d. Now she says that surgery is my next option. I decided to try nasal irrigation. I used a baby aspirator and did it exactly as shown on a website. When I pumped the solution into my one nostril, it did not come out the other side as the website said it should. Am I doing something wrong? Also, how long does it usually take to see results?
My allergist, after identifying my allergens, has been treating me with flonase, Claritin, saline nasal wash, and Advair (to treat irritation from my frequent coughing due to chronic <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>post</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>nasal</span></span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>drip</span>). All taken on a daily basis. I also started allergy shots in March of 2004 which I realize may take a year or more before they help. I do not have asthma, I've passed four tests given by my primary care MD and my allergist. CT scans done in December 2003 revealed blockages in all sinus cavities.
My stuffy nose doesn't really affect my sleep or my daily life but its just a little annoying. Also with this stuffed nose it seems I have some <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>post</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>nasal</span></span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>drip</span>, causing me to clear my throat once in a while. About 4 weeks ago I found small lymph node in my neck and then I consulted my girlfriend's mom, who is a nurse practioner and she said it sounds like chronic sinusitis. She prescribed me amoxicillin for 9 days but it didn't do much except make the lymph node get much smaller.
The pain went away within two hours yesterday after shots buit woke up this morning and pain is back as well as the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>post</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>nasal</span></span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>drip</span>.

I have an extremely clean house due to my dad's type a personality and I always take my medicine which consists of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>flonase</span>, Advair for my severe asthma, and Zyrtec (any other allergy medicine does not work and Benadryl makes too drowsy to take it on a regular basis). Moreover, I have severe asthma and play varsity soccer and am outside everyday.
He does not think this is allergy-related (he never gets congestion, sneezing, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>post</span>-<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>nasal</span></span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>drip</span>, ect. Hx of exercised-induced asthma (no asthma problems otherwise). No sig. med hx. Alt. approaches tried(no help) He's left the state to deduct any environmental allergies/causes. He's now off of Aug & weening off Pred as he's not cont. to feel improvement & trying to build his immune system back up. He's on probiotics.
I also have <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>post</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>nasal</span></span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>drip</span> and heartburn/acid reflux. The Dr put me on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>flonase</span>, Asmanex and Prevacid. My question is, can post nasal drip and heartburn/acid reflux cause a chronic cough? I ask because I have been coughing since September. And once I get everything under control will this chest pain go away? Thank you.
We took him to the doctor and she immediately suspected <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>post</span>-<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>nasal</span></span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>drip</span> (allergies), so tried him on daily Claritin and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>flonase</span>. After 4 weeks there's been no improvement. He was back to the doctor yesterday for a follow up, and she checked first for signs of PND and there is none. So it's definitely not PND causing the noise. She listened to his chest and said there is a definite wheeze there, that it could be asthma.
Could it be <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>post</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>nasal</span></span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>drip</span>? I get this all of the time. I can feel it dripping sometimes down the back of my throat. My head is all congested- it is usually worse in the morning because you lay flat and it cant drain properly. If it is post nasal drip there are a lot of things you can do.You have to find out why you have it though. Do you have allergies? Do you/or did you have a cold recently? Do you have sinus problems? Are your ears plugged?
My doctor gave me <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>flonase</span> for <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>post</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>nasal</span></span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>drip</span>. For weeks I'd say, been having shortness of breath while I am trying to eat. Been sitting in bed,, and I do not feel like I am getting the air from my lungs that I should be. I am very uncomfortable. Esophageal area hurts where I took ibuprofen today but I can't imagine why my reflux issues would make me feel like I am not getting all the air I need. Could it??
