Hi everybody, just got repost if anyone can help..
Last year I had an accident that caused nasal deviation. Later when I see doctor, he told me to have a contrast CT sinus and the result everything was fine, only my nasal would be sensitive for the rest of my life - no sinusitis is mentioned.
Then 2 months after the accident, I started to have a extra mucus around back of my throat. The mucus is draining down the back of my throat, thick whitish in color also sticky like a gel. I keep hawking and spitting to clear my throat. If I open my mouth, there is a saliva patching around uvula, anterior pillar and tongue, creating a layer.
One month after, I had a fever and went to another internist. He suggested to have CT sinus again and from the result, I had a slight sinusitis. I've been given some antibiotics and nasal spray but the mucus still draining and I feel it closed my throat. Afterward I had many times of sore throat and pressure pain in my head so I went to see some ENT doctors. They said sinus was clear, but they suggest me looking for gastroenterology to have further check. So I went to doctor and do the gastroscopy. Results is no bacteria found and he said it was stress that trigger GERD (acid reflux). I also check to neurological doctor and he said the pressure pain over head is because a tension. He only gave me relaxing medicine. Now almost 6 months I under GERD medication, the gastric pain is better but mucus keep coming, pressure pain still develop around my forehead, and my nose is blocked alternately. When I lying in bed, i feel that my nose inside is sort of congested and stuffy. But no mucus is draining from my nostrils. My tongue also whitish in color and sour/bitter in the morning when I wake up and it last during whole day. At first I thought the whitish tongue is due to GERD. Moreover my eyes having a discomfort pain, my under eyes also get swelling - bluish/ purplish in color. I keep having a pressure pain all over my forehead.
Bottom line is, the extra mucus makes me miserable, breathless and affect my personal life. Whenever I talking, the more is mucus so I need to spitting frequently. Worst is when I cry, the mucus coming out a lot, thick and clear through nostrils, and crying definitely increase the mucus production.
I found information that maybe the nasal deviation causing sinusitis and non allergic rhinitis. So the inflammation of sinusitis creates nasal drip 24/7 and spreads to mucus glands, also throat.
Doctor had given me anti-histamin to ease the drip but as you can summarize from my story, nothing is work.
Until now, my throat still dry and burning, I have slight coughing so I keep back and forth to ENT doctor to cure it. In additional, my tongue papils look swelling in several area and I have dry mouth. Have no idea is it because of acid reflux from GERD, sinusitis inflammation or combination of them?
Based on my story, I really hope there is a solution that could fix my problem and bring back my normal life, instead of some reliever symptoms. I almost gave up now because every doctor I met never really listen and understand my problem. They just keep telling it is no big deal and I need to get used to it. Thank you for everybody who leaves any comment or advise, really appreciate it !
