Persistent Problems

My boyfriend has been having constant health issues for approximately 6 or 7 months now, he has been constantly fatigued, nauseous, irritable, he has headaches all the time, he has sinus problems, a sore throat, and he is always coughing up phlegm. He has been to many doctors and done countless tests, all of them saying nothing is wrong with him. We finally decided to explore the possibility it might be a food allergy, and tried eliminating milk products from our diet. For a while it seemed to get better, but he is starting to feel rotten again. Could this be some other type of food allergy?

Hi, welcome to the forum, your symptoms are suggestive of recurrent rhinosinusitis. Such cases should be carefully evaluated and systematic intervention to prevent further recurrences. As your root cause is known and is important take it out.

The associated precipitating factors can be
-chronic viral upper respiratory tract infections
-Heavy exposure to allergens (change in place may help)
-Exposure to noxious inhalants (change in place may help)
-Worsening of inflammation secondary to bacterial infection or fungal colonization.
It is important to rule out mentioned causes and steps should be taken to avoid further exposure.

You should also be evaluated for presence of concomitant asthma for which medical therapy improves the outcome. I suggest you to consult ENT specialist for reanalysis of your case. Take care and regards.
