I have been suffering for many (7+ years) now with the following symptoms
1. Head pressure / blocked ears (but no noticeable hearing loss). Can temporarily clear it by holding nose and blowing, but comes back quite quickly. Can cause me issues with sleep as it becomes a constant battle to clear my head.
2. Constant blocked or runny nose. This is all year round.
3. Trouble in swallowing (worst at night when laying down). Assume is this due to the blocked nose and it's mucus sticking to back of throat.
Have tried many different sprays from the GP (no idea what they are) over the years to try and counter this. Have also had an operation quite a while ago to try and enlarge the gap in my sinus passage (although this did nothing to help the problem).It's probably been over 2 years since I last spoke to the GP about this and to be honest, they didn't seem that interested.
It's got worse this year which has prompted me to post on here and see if there is anything people can advise or do I just go back to the GP and try again?
I am guessing that it is Alergic Rhinitis that I have. Would it be worth seeing GP and asking for an allergy test?
Just hoping there is someone out there with similar problems. It's getting to a point now where it's becoming a problem with my sleep.
Sorry for the long post.
