Sultan, Have you been given a diagnosis?


@sultan….have just read this one message that you sent asking Re white sputum. Am wondering as mentioned by Colleen if you have been to Drs for it? Am not familiar with the meds you mentioned….where do you live?
I have lots of mostly white mucus…….mine no doubt is from several things. I was diagnosed with chronic rhinnorhea….am supposed to irrigate nose several times a day with saline. I also use Flonase nose spray twice a day…steroid anti inflammatory…..folllowed by anti histamine nose spray….Azelestine…..I take Allegra 180mg…..singulaire…..was allergy tested….now getting desensitization shots for molds and dust.
I also have severe Gerd….so I minimize my fluid intake and follow dietary restrictions and do not sleep on right side. And take antacid meds.


Anyone tested for mycobacterium avium?
