Where’s my response. I want my money back
Doctor: Dr.Anil, Doctor replied 2 months ago

Sorry for late reply and inconvenience.

Thanks for all these additional information.

I understand your concern.

Well as you describe, it sounds post nasal drip which can be associated with Pharyngitis, sinusitis and Laryngopharyngeal acid reflux.

You should take some self-care measures until you see your doctor.

Take OTC Prilosec empty stomach and Zantac after meals at bedtime.

Do steam inhalation and saline gargles.
You should take the nasal saline spray and OTC Nasonex spray.
You should take Ibuprofen and Nyquil/Claritin.
You should hydrate yourself with warm liquids.
You should start a multivitamin supplement and vitamin C lozenges.
Take OTC Robitussin DM for a cough.
Elevate your head while lying down.
If your symptoms will persist then see your doctor for further evaluation and management.

Let me know if you have any further query so we can discuss it thoroughly in every aspect.

Please use the REPLY/SEND BUTTON to reply back to me. It’s requested to avoid poor/bad rating.

I feel better already! Thank you.

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.

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.
