Are you taking any other medications?
Have you seen your provider about this?
All of the above medications have been taken at the advice of my primary care physician. No, I am not taking any additional medications, and I am in good health, generally speaking, without any outstanding health issues.
I do not believe that I am the first person to experience this or any other ailment. I'm here because I believe that any ailment benefits from a second set of eyes and ears.
THanks for replying and I agree about having second opinions!
We are happy to help you.
It doesn't sound so much like a sinus infection/impaction from what you are describing but a bronchial respiratory infection.
It could be viral but sometimes when they linger so long you can get a bacterial infection on top of them. ANother consideration would be Pertussis or Whooping Cough. That is making a comeback in the US and we have seen it in our area, Even with vaccinations.
Your provider can test you for that and treat if you have it.
I would add an albuterol inhaler to see if that helps to open up the bronchial airway and decrease the irritability as well. I would also consider steroids or adding codeine to your cough syrup.
You are doing all of the over the counter things possible.
