Slowly dying from stinking mucus .

Posted , 7 users are following.

I've been suffering from this disease for 5 years

i'm still young , i'l be 26 years in next April

My problem started in 2014 with a sudden 'bad breath'

i noticed that my breath smells so bad in the evening for a while

after some months it's aggravated to a very stinking smell that comes out of my mouth

I've seen a lot of doctors and used a lot of antibiotics and nothing seems to work

So i gave up !

years later i noticed that the smell comes from a tick mucus that drops a lot when i'm sleeping

and this mucus have a very stinking smell that you can't even enter the room i'm sleeping in in the evening .

it's always dripping from my throat and i am constantly trying to clear it out

now it's more and more difficult to live with that problem

the mucus drops all the day to my stomach and it's very upset and starts swelling a lot

the thing is, i can't figure out where is this coming from local doctors have no idea about my case

when i wake up i absolutely need to eat a lot

otherwise i feel like a hole in my stomach i can't even breath

i'm having trouble breathing as i feel like someone is squeezing my upper stomach & chest

when i eat i feel relieved .

and i think it's from the quantity of mucus that enters to my stomach at night

i really can't find out where is the problem is coming from

I've seen a lot of doctors and no one have any lead!

i'm slowly dying from that smell & i can't suffer no more

i really started to think about suicide

i need help

please any lead where i should start to look for

    What about the tests ? Did you go through endoscopy, breath test to find any type of bacterial infection?

    Did you try antibacterial gargling or mouth wash?

    Hi PeterNopp

    You may be suffering with post nasal drip when mucus from your sinus goes down your throat instead of through your nasal passages. It can make your breath smell really bad. You will have to be referred to a specialist who deals with the Sinus. If your in UK it's Ear, Nose and throat Specialist. You may have sinus polyps that causes your post nasal drip. Ask your doctor to refer you to an ENT Specialist because you may have a sinus infection as well as nasal polyps....

    i spend more than 3K $ on this problem but it's getting worse every single day

    First i went to a nose/ear specialist and he told me to do a MRI scan..

    i did the MRI scan for sinus and they found nothing , everything was clear. there is no infection of anything.

    she just gave me antibiotics : prednisolone and a mought wach

    i used them , at first the bad breath was gone for the time i was taking the meds

    when i finished the treatment after 2 days i noticed the mucus dripping back with the smell , and aggravated back when days goes, after 1 weak i was at step 0 , got back to here and she gave me a much stronger antibiotic the Moxifloxacin it was a very hard pill that caused me tiredness , pain and fatigue

    after i finished it the same thing happened back the mucus was dripping back and the smell was there!

    then i tough it was coming from my stomach because i have hard time breathing and upper stomach pain when my stomach is empty ( i have to eat every 2 hours) keep it full so i can breath well and have no pain

    " i think it's because the amount of phlegm that was filling it , and it was upset ! it's the worst thing that can happen to anyone ..

    i got to a stomach specialist doctor and did a fibrescope inspection 2 times with 2 different doctors

    both of them took some of my stomach tissues and analysis after they didn't found anything abnormal with the camera scope , the result says that there is nothing in my stomach it was clean !

    she gave me parasites scan & IFOBT scan (looking for blood in the cells) but everything was negative

    nothing shows up

    HEPATIT C / B analysis as well where negative

    Blood test : Red blood cells and white blood cells where normal

    only one single clue is thae ALAT & ASAT where a bit higher than the normal

    SGOT/ASAT is 48 the normal (10-40)

    SGOT/ALAT 59 the normal is (10/40)

    at first she tough it was due to acid reflux i was taking days and days of Esomeprazole

    and Anti-reflux pills , all sorts of all kind , they where not working.

    and after all these analysis & scans the doctor gave me a 15 day treatment for helicobacter pylori because she tough also it may be the cause , i took the antibiotic she gave me it was a very hard treatment with absolutely 0 result , even that the test says that i don't have any presence of pylori she gave it to me!

    the same thing happened after i finished the medicament , the bad smell and mucus were back !

    she gave up on me and told me to go to an Nose and throat doctor.

    this time the doctor gave me the same prednisolone that i already tried with some nose cleaning stuff

    i used them as he told me and came back to him after 20 days with no result

    he inspected my nose with a fiberscope camera and told me that nothing was showing up !

    and he suggested me to go to a pulmonologist i did go to a hospital this time

    did the lung scan they where fine !

    the doctors here have no idea what's causing my problem

    Stinking BREATH a lot of PHLEGM that cause me trouble breathing and stomach pain !

    i wake up in my room like a rotten animal

    you can smell the odor 5 meter away .


    The saliva or mucus is constantly dropping from throat all the day clearing and spiting all day , the think is this mucus is stinking and smells like an animal have died inside me , that's so hard to fight !

    i can't talk to people i don't get out from my room for months.

    it's a very hard thing to deal with

    the local doctors we have her are inexperienced and can't find out what's the source of my problem.

    if someone could help i can send him all the scans and analysis i did for the last 3 years

    i just wanna be cured or die in peace....

    the only thing i found useful is Bitter orange

    i take half a cup of it's juice during the night it seems to help a little bit with the odor

    other than that i have to eat and don't leave my stomach empty for more than 2 hours or less

    because when my stomach is empty it's very upset because of the amount of phlegm that's dripping to it. i start having trouble breathing and i feel a lot of pain in my stomach/chest

    i can't find out where is the problem is coming from

    i tried everything pills , mouth washes , nose sprays , antibiotics

    nothing seems to work.

    it's so hard to stay at your room for months without going outside

    because you smell like a rotten animal.
