Constant Post Nasal Drip

Posted , 1 user is following.

I've been experiencing near constant and pretty bad post nasal drip for about 4 months. It started this summer, and I had an itchy throat too, so I just attributed it to allergies despite the fact that I've never had allergies before. I don't really have a stuffy nose, so I'm confused how the drip could be so bad. It got a little better in september-early october, but the drip is back and with a vengeance. Allergy medicine does not help. I don't know why the post nasal drip won't go away. I'm worried it could be something serious like sinus cancer since sometimes my left ear hurts (could just be too much wax though or something). I'm in college right now out of town so I can't really see my doctor about this, but it's really starting to worry me. Any insight would be greatly appreciated!
