Customer Question
Please help me. I'm...

Please help me. I'm always miserable. I am crying as I type. I have had halitosis over the last 5 years which seemed like it started from a sinus infection. I quit my job because of this, and I have lost jobs because of this. My xray froy multiple dentists show that I am fine. Ct scan of brain and sinus show that I am fine. I'm not diabetic nor hypertensive. Could it be a salivary gland problem. There seemed to be thigh clear mucus like liquid in running down my throat at all times. I have taken multiple antibiotics with no relief. I feel like I am all alone in this. I want keep a job and date. I can't. Please help me. I'm in a constant stare of severe depression, because of this

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been feeling this way? Have you reached out to anyone about this yet?

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.
