Hi, I suffered with severe rhinitis for about 12 years. I had excruciating flu-like symptoms which would come on as an 'attack' and then fester for days. The itching in my sinuses would make me scream and water would flow from my nose and eyes. I was often bedridden.
?I identified my triggers as stress and cold. While I try to avoid both it is not always possible. I tried acupuncture which works for some, but not me, I had hypnotherapy which did help with the stress trigger but not the cold. Finally two years ago I went to a chiropractor. It has taken a long time and a lot of money but I am *nearly* fine. I had an attack this week (when I got very very cold) which was the first in months and it reminded me how awful my life had been previously. It was this flashback that has prompted me to write this and tell other people that there is hope.
