please help with sinus problems

About a year ago I developed what I thought was the flu. I went to the dr. Who gave me antibiotics. It went away for a few days but then came back. My symptoms were running nose, nasal drainage down my throat filling my lungs with gunk, and subsequent cough. After 3 more trips to my family Dr. and three more, and different antibiotics, I demanded something was wrong and I'm not taking any more antibiotics. I went to see an ENT and he said it was my deviated septum causing the problems. So I scheduled an appointment for the surgery. While waiting on that day to arrive I had two severe asthma attacks, my first ever, which led me to seeing a pulmonary doctor. He diagnosed me with bronchitis brought on my the sinus issue and scheduled an appointment with an allergist. Than ran the allergy test with negative results. Yes, all 58 pin pokes in the back were negative and then 17 injections under the skin of my forearms all came back negative. I have the septum surgery, that was 4 months ago. I've tried all kinds of meds to no avail. I'll list them at the end of my post. So now, my nose runs, filling my lungs with fluid, then I can't breathe so I take an albuterol breathing treatment and I can breathe again. I'll cough the cap out of my lungs, and I'm good for a few days, then repeat the cycle. Any suggestions on what it is? I've never smoked but feel like a 30 year habit. If this continues I'll be on oxygen in 5 years, and I'm only 45.

List of meds that I've taken in the last 6 months. And nothing, nothing has stopped my sinuses from draining into my lungs. Allegra, zyrtec, claritin, flonase, ipratropium, ranitidine, azelastine, prednisone, azelastine, clarithromyc, ventolin, montelukast, azithromycin, clindamycin, methylpred, cefdinir, omeprazole, arnuity.
