ENT Issues: I don’t know what to do.

Maybe you could see an otolaryngologist to check for nasal polyps? Also could try salt water rinse of nasal passages to clear up any problem there. Good luck but I’m sure all will be well soon.

As a nurse of fifty years ae nd a patient with various ENT problems for many years the fact that you have several consistent and troublesome symptoms tells me that you need a comprehensive exam by a team of experts in various fields. I do not go on this forum to diagnose or to share other people's diagnosis since everyone's issues might be similar but are different in many ways.

I went to Mayo in Rochester almost eight years ago after being wrongly diagnosed and treated by ENTs for years. The comprehensive assessment and treatment I received there is the reason I am still here and finally found out what my diagnoses were. Our heads are very complex 🙂 there's simply too much there for one specialist to diagnose if there hasn't been a successful outcome from initial treatments. Mayo in Rochester is the #1 ENT/Head & Neck medical center in the country and well worth the trip to get a thorough assessment, not just a 2nd opinion. I live in Kentucky and didn't hesitate to get "out of town" to get a diagnosis that I could trust. I strongly suggest you make the trip – you deserve freedom from the horrific symptoms you've suffered all this time.

Again, I am a patient and a nurse but I have no financial or other connection to the Mayo except knowing the entire system is responsible for my current healthy life. I wish you all the best.
