Sinusitis,Bronchial Pneumonia

I am about to embark on a mission to find out why I cannot have just a head cold.
It develops into sinus infection along with bronchial cough and then pneumonia.
In the past 7 years I have had 3 bouts with this nasty threatening disease.
I do have severe deviated septum and ENT advised me to have it corrected to allow
the nasal mucous to drain better.  ENT also states she thinks salty mucuous
build up and dripping down the back of the throat could be caused by improper
gerd med or improper dosage.  I get a very salty tasting fluid build up in
saliva.  It gets out of control, causing sore throat, then sinus infection,
then coughing, expectoraing dark yellow mucous. Have had whooping cough
and it sounds like the same cough.  Did smoke for 20 years
but quit cold turkey 24 years ago.  I take aciphex for gerd dosage 2x daily.
Cystic fibrosis on mothers side with 1 blood cousin and 2 nieces from half sister.
2 lived to early adults and one infant mortality.  At age 63 with 2 children and
no cystic there still seems to be some correaltion with carriers of the defective
gene and same symptoms of cystic.  These include the sinusitis and possibly
digestive enzyme problems.  Just now getting over the newest bout and
have appointments with Endo for hypothyroid and Pulmonary group (first visit)
this coming Thursday.  What is your take on this and what questions should
I pose to the specialists.  Appreciate any and all advice.  Thanks, TJ

It is good that you are seeing a pulmo for have an interesting family history. Hopefully the pulmo will do lung function tests, imaging tests of your sinuses and perhaps the lungs, and go from there as to what other tests he should run. I hope you get  answers soon and that the visit to the pulmo goes somewhere. Sunny
