I made a post a while back about the trouble i was having in regards to my nose. I have very swallon turbinates, and persistent chronic allergy symptoms for months. Resulting in my loss of taste and smell. I went to the doctors and they prescribed me steroid nasal spray, which after a week started to show some results. I used this along side clarityn and it worked great for about 2 weeks! I could finally taste and smell again. But for the past 3 weeks im back to square one again, Completely blocked up, constant allergy symptoms and loss of smell and taste.
I went to the doctors again yesterday, begging for an allergy test to find out what the cause of this is. They told me its not widely available anymore so I can't be tested for it unless i have an idea of what it is... He then referred me to the ent clinic, and the wait is 4 months just to be seen ( it took me 4 weeks just to get an appointment with the doctors) He gave me some more allergy tablets which do NOTHING. None of them work any more, I've tried every brand to try along side my steroid spray. The spray does nothing anymore either. I am honestly at the end of my tether with this now, the past 9 months have been miserable. I've completely lost my appetite too as I just can't enjoy food. Can anyone please give me any sort of advice that i can try? literally anything. I've tried most things that I can think of but at this stage im desperate to get this sorted.
