I have been to about 5 different ENTs because I constantly have problems with my throat. I thought I had post-nasal drip, because I have to constantly clear my throat. I have an elongated uvula and thought that caused it, but one of the doctors said no. I've been told that I have mild/moderate sinusitis by one doctor, while another told me it was bronchitis and gave me antibiotics. I keep having to constantly clear my throat, and recently I find myself having to spit, most of the time a sticky white phlegm. My tongue is also white at times, and my breath gets smelly much quicker than before. No one seems to figure out what's causing it, and everything seems normal. I was told that I have a deviated septum and my turbinates are enlarged. Most of the time, if not all the time, I can breathe freely only through one of the nose holes. I've tried several sprays, and nothing seems to help so far. In the morning, the phlegm that I clear out of my throat is almost non-stop, it is very concentrated and white. What can I do? I'm getting so irritated of this problem. Thanks in advance.
I appreciate how distressing your problem is to you, however your complaints are beyond the scope of my practice.
