Hello All,

I'm just here to enquire about a couple of medical question's I don't seem to be getting awnsers for,

some time ago I have rhinitis in 2013 since then my nose has been blocked and running but maily just blocked I also sneeze throw-out the year, Everytime I go to my GP I always have inflammed nose and throat,

back in august I had a virus possibly a cold, I was not bed bond but didnt feel to good in general, dizzyness, running nose, sneezing, tight chest, shortness of breath, feeling abit sick but was never sick, this lasted for around 7 days but the tight chest and short breath lasted around 14 days, I went to my GP and they just put it down to a virus, shortly after this maybe 1 or 2 days of feeling ok I started choking on food and have not been able to eat since I'm 29 year old male and living on complan for the past 9 - 10 weeks with nothing else I get the odd occation where I can manage a little soup but find it hard to swallow the slightist thing such as chopped up herbs or a thick liquid,

I have had a barium swallow and they have said I have mild esophagus spasm, this makes me feel like im being stranggled I do get acid reflux and feel acid alot of times a day and take lansoprazole 60mg per day but still no change in eating,

Since august Ive seen several doctor's and not had any awnsers as I said above my nose and throat are imflammed all the time with sneezing and a blocked or blocked and running nose, has anyone been threw simular? or has anybody known anyone to go threw simular?

Thank you

I believe these two conditions can be linked gastric reflux and sinus problems and very occasionally the gastric reflux can cause a sinus problem.Have a look online at the connection.It was a surprise to me and I am a Nurse.

Do you have mold in your house? i have a mold allergy and this is very similar to what i experienced as a child but it didn't help docs can't mention mold because mold can actually cause hormonal or infertility problems in females so they feel it's a personal question to ask, doesn't stop them telling you things you shouldn't actually be taking though... i was put inhalers much of my childhood which lowered my immune system and i kept getting bad colds and then i got this bad chest infection that wouldn't go away and i definitely probs had asthma because mold effects children far more greatly and will most likely induce asthma, so i had this chest infection for like a year that wouldn't go away, i was coughing and spluttering, tight chest and it got a point where i struggled to breath for a minuite.

After i had to take Antibiotic Stereoids my asthma went away, it was a last resort but i had to because i'm also prone to being allergic to things straight away, the doc tried me on penicilin but i'm allergic to it straight away, Antibiotic Steroids also inhibits inflamtorty effects not just for infections but for allergies too so it makes sense why i was suddenly cured. I moved to Scotland for a while and didn't have any problems then about 5/6 year old i moved back to England and after about a year my eyes started going red and i wake up almost every day with a blocked nose, really red eyes so i have to wash my face to reduce the inflamation a little, and i sneeze at least a couple times a day, i would feel dizzy even in Scotland too though because we did have a tiny bit of mold but not near as bad as here in England. So you may have a mold allergy like me if that's what it is. antihitimines may help definitely.
