Subject;my daughter, Hayley has suffered for most of her life (now 10 years old) from a "bunged up" nose.It seems a lot worse in winter when she developes a cold. Although she has had severe headaches in the summer months this year too.She has been diagnosed with persistant non-allergic rhinitis for which there seems no real cure or explanation why she has this condition.She has had allergy tests which all came back negative.The ENT specialist inspected inside her nose with a camera and noticed unusual swelling.Fortunately her headaches are under control and at a minimum due to a course of acupuncture,which I put her on after weeks of sinis pain during July 06.When she catches a cold she can't seem to get rid of it.She caught one around Sept 20 and she still has it,(Nov 20) and produces copious amounts of mucus every day.
When I look back to when she was about 2/3 years old, she always dribbled all over her clothing as if she couldn't breathe through her nose.She was a very unhappy infant always crying and never sleeping.Even now she tells me she cannot settle to go to sleep for a long while.At present she has no sense of smell or taste.
We, as a family, are desperate for something to be done to releive Hayley of this constant irritation.Her moods are terrible and she still seems so unhappy.The condition is affecting us all.
She may well grow out of it,which is what we all wish.
It seems such a trivial ailment but I am now worried about her being able to catch her breath when she sleeps and she now has the added pain from her periods every month too.I have read this condition often leads to asthma in later life as an added worry for me.
Thanks for taking notice from a concerned mother.
