I have a constantly congested nose. I have tried almost everything and its starting to drive me crazy. I have to always breathe through my mouth, I wake up in the morning with a completely dry mouth,and so congested that even the breathe the smallest amount of air through my nose. But for some reason my nose will drip fluid. Also my ears will eventually begin to block and that's annoying its almost like being in a wind tunnel. I did see a ENT but all they said is that its probably allergies. As far as I know I have none. (accept some food allergies, but I stay away from those foods.) Bottom line is that its starting to get hard to feel good. Its hard to breathe normal when trying to work out or trying to fall asleep, my head even feels more foggy when i wake up in the morning. The netti pot I have just makes me feel like im drowning and only lasts a few hours before im blocked again. Please help me Im clean out of ideas!

By trying everything, I'm guessing you've taken antihistamines such as Claritin and Zyrtec as well as decongestants like Mucinex.  If those did not help, you should consider allergy testing to see what you are allergic to.  If severe enough, your allergist can start you on allergy shots.

I have  done allergy testing and they had decided that im not allergic to much else but some foods ( such as nuts and apples) which i stay away from so they decided that allergy shots were not necessary.

Perhaps Nasalcrom (cromolyn sodium) would be of benefit.
