Has anyone else had cold symptoms—constant sinus drainage/headache, cough etc after having an esophegeal manometry and ph Impedance tests where they put the catheters up through your nose, down your throat and into the esophagus? After several days My sinuses are constantly draining and nose running and not just a little—plus a cough and lots of sneezing. When I had the catheter removed, the technician didn’t Seem concerned—said that they put a lidocaine gel in the nose with a syringe before the test test and it gets pushed into the sinuses. I really feel like I have gotten a cold somehow.

Has anyone successfully worked with an Integrative Medicine specialist for multiple digestive issues including IBS and GERD? A friend referred me to someone who is a PhD in integrated medicine.
