Hi,

Welcome to JA and thanks for this question. Im sorry to hear about your symptoms. There are a few conditions which can cause this sort of problem, the first one which comes to mind is that you could have developed a viral infection which is causing the symptoms. This can occur at any time and is usually self limiting in nature which means that it would settle down on its own within 7-10 days and the symoptoms can be managed in the meantime with OTC medications. These include OTC zyrtec or claritin once a day along with OTC benadryl at night. Decongestants lcan also be used like sudafed. OTC tylenol can also be helpful in this situation.

Another possibility is that of allergies which can develop at any point in your life and that can lead to symptoms like these. The above treatment would also be helpful for this problem as well.

Sinusitis is another possibility in which there is an infection and inflamation inside the sinuses. This would be diagnosed with a sinus xray and can be treated with the help of sinus lavages and the same medications that i mentioned above. It can also cause the fumes that you have mentioned. In some cases you would need a short course of antibiotics and steroids to clear up the problem.

I would suggest that you have this evaluated but in the meantime try the above measures and see if they help.

Do you have any more questions?

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
