I have the sniffles all the time. I have gone to the ear, nose, throat doctor. I had xrays of my sinus. No sinus shown. I've gone to the allergy doctor. No allergies. I have taked claritin, clarinex, mucinex, sudafed sinus, and tylenol sinus nothing works. What can I do to stop the sniffles. I can't cough it up or blow it out. I need help.

Hello,

You need to have a CT Scan of your Para- Nasal Sinuses.

A X ray of the sinuses is not a definitive diagnostic tool, and with your recurring symptoms, you need furhter investigation.

A CT scan is far superior in detecting pathologies of the sinuses and bullae, than an X ray, and you should have it done, it would help in reaching a diagnosis and thus a cure.

I had the CT scan. I'm sorry I said xray. To me I thought it was all the same. I guess not.

Hello,

You seem to have tried almost all medical treatments for this.

I would advise you to try Nasal Irrigation,that would help clean out your nasal passages and help with this constant stuffy nose.

Please see a Mayo Clinic Video to know how this is done, by clicking here :
