I am a 34 year old male with overall great health and I have been battling the following symptoms since Oct. 2016.
Left side of my face/nose feels worse
NetiPot and nasal sprays don’t change anything (have tried multiple nasal sprays)
Wake up every day with both nostrils being full of dried brown mucus even when using a humidifier
Still clearing my throat a lot, probably due to white stuff on back of my throat
Still see white stuff on the back of my throat (nobody has discussed this with me)
HORRIBLE taste in my mouth all the time, gum or brushing teeth/mouthwash doesn’t help, the worst when I clear my throat
Tonsil stones!! (nobody has discussed this with me) Got 3 out of tonsils just the other night
Have an empty cough, where I feel the need to cough something but am unable to produce anything
Pressure sensation in my ears, feels like paper is stuck in my ears, chewing gum or yawning helps for a little, very itchy
Sinus pressure all the time! I feel like I am squinting all the time. It is all around my eyes and upper part of my cheek
Feels like there is something in both of my eyes all the time, very itchy, unable to wear contacts
Overall feeling of fatigue, even when I get a full night sleep or extra rest
Feel like my body is trying to fight something but is always losing
I have seen 3 general doctors, 2 ENT doctors, my main dentist, my eye doctor and most recently an endodontist.
The cost of all of this is easily into the thousands.
The amount of medicine I have been on is, honestly, quite sickening.
I have now had 3 CT scans of my head, first 2 showed moderate sinusitis, the most recent I have never seen but was told "you look great"
I have changed my diet twice, both no gluten and diary and most recently very low carb.
These doctors just pull out their meds and move right along, my second ENT doctor forgot he had given me a shot in my left butt check a month prior and tried to initiate it again. Dec. 2017
That same doctor in Nov. 2017 did a balloon surgery on me, no side effects and surgery went well but it did NOTHING for me.
My most recent ENT thinks it could be Silent Reflux and yes while some of the symptoms fit, why did it suddenly hit me in Oct. 2016? So I am currently taking Omeprazole twice a day for 2 months, 1.5 week in and absolutely no change!
I guess I am now on these forums to look for actual help and maybe find something out.
Thank you for reading! <3
