Hello, welcome to Justanswer, I will try to assist you with your medical question, and any medical information you seek
What color is the mucus?
It will not come out. I think its normal white. THis morning i blew my nose.. It seems like when I cry mucus comes out of my nose or somethings when I get near steamy water mucus comes out of my nose which then feels good
How long have you had this?
but too much phlemg in the throat
I had this for over three months. it sort of went away for a bit.
Its driving me nuts.
I can't sleep and its putting stress on me I already have bipolar depression.
Have you tried a nasal saline rinse?
I did does not work.. I will try it again tonight. I also tried the neti pot nothing.. It gets more thicker during the night.
I even take a xanx to realax myself.. I am so scared of this.
How many times a day did you use it?
It makes me not to be able to concentrate on my bipolar to get it fixed... I have this phlegm It depressed me.
How many times a day did you use the rinse?
Well I use to use it before.. but I use to get a buring throat and could not breath.. I went through hell. I went to the emergecny room thinking my throat was closing could not breath. But now the throat closing has not come back.. but the phlegm did.
They told me it was acid reflux and allergies
but I got an endoscopy and showed nothing
If i could get rid of this phlemg ican go to sleep at nights.
Please answer the question I asked above
I am not using everyday... because when i had the phlemg it never went away... It only went away when I was taking antibotics for a tooth abecess which I did not have after dentist told me.
Are you there?
Okay, this may be due to a chronic sinus infection, you may benefit from 5-7 days of antibiotics as well as a nasal steroid spray to clear it
but itook the antibotics for ten days..it cleared up then came back..why
using a saine nasal spray 3 times a day would likely also help
Probably because it was still inflamed which made it return, that is why you need the spray
can i use a regular saline or doI need a sterioid spray.
i also still have some of the antibotics should I takethem without thedoctor knowing?
You may use a saline rinse until you can get your doctor to prescribe a the steroid spray
No, you should not take the antibiotics you have
Okay so should this help me to sleep?
I really need to sleep
It should help you
my depression is putting so much stress on me and If ican't sleep i will end up sick.
the neti pot good?
The neti pot is fine
can i ask you why so much drippings of phlmeng go in the throat and will not shut off?
its like a faucet
and you have to clear andclear
it is likely due to inflammation of the sinuses
does it go away or it will always return
It does not always return
okay i hope so. this is really driving me to throw myself over a bridge.
I will try the neti pot tonight and hopefully i can sleep.
When i use it should i see mucus come out.. because i never do
You may not see it
well what does it do to stop the phlemgh/
I don't understand if it does not take it out
it helps clear the sinuses and allergens
okay i hope this works and I will take your word for it. If this helps god bless you!
I want to live happy
I hope you feel better
Thanks should I let you know if it will work?
yes, please do
If it does not what else are my alternatives.
to got to sleep
The other alternative is to see your doctyor for the antibiotics and steroid spray
okay but does not anti botics loose their affect when you use them to many times
Not if it is a different antibiotic
okay fine.. I will gouse the neti so i can get sleep... God bless you if this works.
