After reading all the posts on nasal problems, including sore throat, hoarseness, allergies, etc., I could identify with all of you. It all started 2 1/2 years ago. Saw ENT, who ordered a cat scan and said it was clear. Went for 2nd opinion, and was told the same, and was sent to pulmonologist who after 2 months dismissed me. No lung problems. Then went to allergist, who claimed I was allergic to dust and mold. After 3 allergy shots, I quit. From there more ENTs, and finally went to dentist who took X-rays, called in oral surgeon who called in Ethmoid specialist. He just happened to be a partner of the 1st doc I saw who took the CAT scan. After reading it, he concluded it was chronic ethmoid sinusitis. Had surgery. All was well. Next saw gastro MD, and had endoscopy. Had giant para esophageal hernia, so Nissen Fundoplication done. Six mos. of being normal again was enjoyed, then operation failed. Had Barium swallow which showed a new hernia, so back to all the symptoms of GERD again. Now have appt. at Mayo Clinic to have 2nd surgery done. The hiatal hernia was causing all the problems from the start, so can't wait to have the redo. Mayo is #1 in the USA. Appt. set for 1/27/15.
