I'm an asthmatic and in 2013 after a bad cold followed by shortness of breath for post nasal drip the ENT gave me a total of (before and after surgery )15 courses of antibiotics. I had first sinus surgery for chronic rinosinusitis with fungus. First CT scan prior to first surgery was mostly greyed out with slight deviated septum and plenty mucosul thickening. This helped a little but in a few months post nasal drip returned and then antibiotics continued in 2014 where i had a second CT scan which again showed greyed out areas but not as much as first scan and also showed mucusol thickening. I had second surgery and like first one it helped for a month or two then the post nasal drip returned. Meanwhile throught all of this since before the first surgery and until today i have used Neilmend sinus rinse every day sometimes once a day others twice a day. The symptoms which I have really felt from all this since the beginning back in early 2013 was fatigue and some body aches this was worse in the beginning but is now and on and off thing. I have tried vitamins and minerals from my naturopath the only thing that helps is good quality B Vitamins for energy . I have to say i have not been the same since that cold I had 3 years ago and besides having an irritating cough and also have to spit muccuos out in the bathroom as I work in customer service its a nightmare.The ENT i have seen for nearly 2 years pretty much said , there is nothing I can do for you...I have arranged to have a second opinion in the next month with a another ENT. so lets see how it goes. any help would be much appreciated. thanks peeps
