Hello I have been suffering from chronic allergic rhinitis for the past 5 years. It began as hayfever then gradually progressed onto allergic rhinitis then Asthma. I am on Antihistamines for life but have come off them due to pregnancy. The Allergic Rhinitis is an absolute nightmare it affects my daily life to such an extent I am unable to go outdoors due to constant runny nose mainly, blocked sinuses and facial pain. I go through tons of boxes of tissues a week and the symptoms are debilitating and I am limited to what I can do because every second of the day I spend blowing my nose. If I try to plug up my nose it gets so congested more comes out. From the minute I wake up sneeze that's it. It then stays for an average of up to 10 hours a day just running like a tap, I am driven to the point where I just want to remove my nose for good since I heard surgery does not help. I use an air purifier at home 24hours a day, I have tried every type of medication loratadine, chloraphenanmine, piriton etc, steroid nasal sprays and sea water sterimar allergy response plus nasal douching yet nothing works!! I have been to so many appointments yet no help is around even the consultant at the hospital with the camera up my nose sees one polyp and says there's nothing that can be done... Really!? Please just cut off my nose I wish there was a cure because honestly I feel I don't have a normal life anymore. Please let there be a cure.
