Help with my symptoms

So it all started when I noticed 1-2 lymph nodes on my neck were swollen. They weren’t constant and different ones swelled each time. This was 8 months ago.

After a doctor exam, turned out I had postnasal drip and this was caused by the swelling of blood vessels in my nose. I had and have no drainage, it was just that my nose is constantly blocked and I have postnasal drip. I used to live in a dry country back then and they probably said it was due to the air since there were no other apparent reasons, but now i have moved to a place right next to the sea and the symptoms are still there.

My nose used to be really blocked at night but now I have elevated my pillow and it seems to be less severe. I use saline throughout the day but my postnasal drip is still there.
