Allergies post nasal drip

Common Questions and Answers about Allergies post nasal drip


Avatar m tn I have not taken any of these since I am not sure that its allergies causing the post nasal drip. Usually I have more than one symptom when I have "allergies". I put it in quotations because I am not too sure if I suffer from allergies. Medication sometimes helps but other times does nothing for me. I too get nauseas all day and it seems to get worse after I eat. I have been using the Neti rinse for a few weeks now and have been garggling warm salt water.
Avatar m tn The other causes for long term cough besides asthma are GERD and post nasal drip from allergies. GERD is gastro esophageal reflux disease where the stomach acids come back into the esophagus and spill into the wind pipe causing cough. Treatment with antacids will help neutralize the acids. Post nasal drips can occur with sinusitis and throat infections. Giving up cigarettes will abolish smoker's cough in 90% of people.
Avatar n tn I have post nasal drip and also an upset stomach a lot of the time. When my stomach is sick, the only way to help it feel better is to eat. But then that doesn't last too long. Do you think my upset stomach is de to the dripping? What do you think is the best remedy for this? Thank you - This discussion is related to <a href='/posts/show/206212'>HELP!! Can Chronic Post Nasal Drip Cause Stomach Problems? Can allergy symptoms change?</a>.
Avatar f tn I have tinnitus and post nasal drip. I notice it mostly when I'm home. When I go on vacation the tinnitus is not noticeable and my post nasal drip eases up. Could the these be caused by allergies? Could they be something I'm allergic to either in my home or environment? I have had allergy testing for foods and air borne pollens, etc. I am allergic to dust mites. Could that be a culprit? I live in a fairly dry environment.
Avatar n tn I have chronic post nasal drip which causes me to cough and hack . It makes a tickle in the back of my throat sometimes or it just drips and causes me to cough it up. I don't have a cold or sinus infection,I do have hay fever, but that usually subsides with medications. i am finding that nothing seems to help stop[ this problem for a long period of time. Claritin helps for a couple of hours, Benadryl helps but as soon as it wears off its back again.
Avatar f tn Okay I'm starting my second trimester, the very beginning of it, and while my morning sickness appears to have waned, I've got a horrid post-nasal drip that is still making me vomit sometimes. My doctor was an idiot and I don't have another appointment until I move and see another doctor. Did anyone have such a bad post-nasal drip, and if so what can be done for it? It's driving me nuts! -PS- I'm not sick or anything. Just that really bad drip.

Avatar f tn Hi, I went to the clinic few days ago and the doc said that I might have post nasal drip because I spit out mucus,stuffy nose,cough,sneeze,....He gave me a nasal spray and said that if it doesn't work come back for allergy testing.How long would it take for this medication to work ? and if this medication doesn't work how many weeks or months should I wait to see the doc ? Thanks He also ask me if I have any allergies but I couldn't answer because I don't know ;0.
Avatar m tn However, a couple of weeks ago, I have realised that I have been experiencing post nasal drip. I am not sure if it is caused by the dry mouth, or if the dry mouth is causing it. Regardless, if I don't swallow frequently, mucus builds up at the back of my throat. I cannot seem to spit it out, and I have to swallow it. Also, if I talk for too long, or go without drinking water for too long, my tongue dries up.
1279667 tn?1271215635 I thank you for all the information you've given on post nasal drip, but my doctor does not think that is what my issue is. Like post nasal drip, it IS worse at night. I cannot drink anything cold. I have become violently lactose intolerant, and my symptoms are worse after eating. I cannot use a nasal spray. At the same time all this started, I also started suffering from panic attacks.
Avatar f tn I have had post nasal drip for about 2 months, doctor put me on fluticasone propionate which has helped as not as bad but noticing still having nausea in am especially with having a cup of coffee with creamer as like today I drank just a little next thing I am throwing it right back up. I am over 50 and just went to allergist who diagnosed me with asthma and all allergy tests showed I wasn't allergic but my question is is it the creamer making me sick or the actual coffee.
Avatar f tn I have had post nasal drip for the last 6 years. It is constant. It is thick and causes me to cough up mucus constantly. I have seen many doctors and specialists who have put me on acid reflux medicines, antibiotics, etc... nothing has worked! I am lost as to what this could be from and where to go next to try and get some relief, as nothing so far has worked. I am currently trying spariva, but this has not helped either. Has anyone else had this problem?
Avatar n tn ve had post-nasal drip, one cold with a cough that lasted about 8 weeks and now a constant tickling sensation in my chest, under and on either side of the breast bone. I also sometimes feel a tightness in my chest, not pressure or pain but discomfort, hard to explain. The post--nasal drip is constant and annoying as well as the ticklish feeling. I went to one doctor and he thinks allergies but I don't know-what could I be allergic to in the middle of the desert?
Avatar n tn This fall when it started i noticed I had bad post nasal drip, chest pains (tightness) and breathing difficulties and severe shortness of breath. Can allergies and or chronic sinus infections make a person so weak and fatigued that they can not function normally? My doctor gave me an allergy shot and it alleviated the symptoms to a degree.
Avatar n tn I have bad allergies, sneezing, itchy eyes,SEVERE post nasal drip and asthma...( I have allergies all year but this is ridiculous) I went to my doctor who stated because I am a runner and biker these symptoms get worse with the change in the air and the effect it has on my lungs...She recommended Sudafed PE....does not work as well as Tylenol Severe Allergy..I have tried everything over the years...
Avatar f tn Hello, What you have is chronic post nasal drip. Post-nasal drip (PND) occurs when excessive mucus is produced by the sinuses. The excess mucus accumulates in the throat or back of the nose. It can be caused by rhinitis, sinusitis, or laryngopharyngeal acid reflux. It can be enhanced or sometimes even caused by allergies. Please check out with an ENT specialist if you are having chronic rhinitis or sinusitis.
Avatar f tn I've suffered with CONSTANT post nasal drip for over a year now, and have tried all kinds of antihistamines off the shelf, & also had alergy tests done, which just tells me nothing. I've lived in the same place for about 10 yrs., so I just don't know what I'm alergic to. What kind of medicine can I take to get some relief? I'm totally fed up and depressed with constant clearing my throat for 24 hrs. a day.
Avatar f tn But I would see an ear, nose and throat specialist. It does sound as if you have post nasal drip, but a little exreme for that. Even if it is post nasal drip w/allergies, see an ENT specialist as I'm sure they can do more to help you. If not, see an Allergist.
Avatar m tn Basically my main problem is post nasal drip. I constantly have this feeling in the back of my throat like something is there, and I constantly and sucking out/coughing out and spitting out mucus (white and clear). However, at random times during the day I have these short periods (last about 5 minutes or so) where I feel like I can't breathe. It's a very strange feeling....
Avatar n tn For the past 3 years, I've had this nasal drip that will not stop. I can't bend over or talk to anyone without my sinuses always dripping. I have to carry tissue every where I go. Can someone please help. I've been to the sinus clinic a number of times and nothing seems to help. HELP PLEASE!!!!
Avatar f tn You also might be able to find a cough suppressant OTC that is aimed directly at coughing due to post nasal drip. The allergies are so bad this year, I would bet that is what is causing your problems. I was told that doctors have seen more cases of seasonal allergies and sinus infections this year alone than they have in the last 5 years. that should tell you something.
Avatar f tn I have had seasonal allergies along with dust, cat and dog allergies too since 30 years ago. I finally had 5 years of allegy shot ending aroung 2005, This year has been so bad with all the pollen I feel like I'm right back to day one. My eyes are itchy, my nose runs and my palate is so itchy. I take Atrovent for post nasal drip, aerius for the allergies and I'm also on Advair 250 discuss. Why is this happening after all these years? Will it go away or am I supposed to get shots again.
Avatar m tn m not a doctor, just mom like you .. .but any allergies or post nasal drip going on? Will your Dr allow some Mylanta to see if that helps at all? WELCOME to the COMMUNITY!
