Thyroid UK

Rhinitis anyone

I got a range of blood tests done on Thursday after requesting testing for Hypothyroidism. Still awaiting results and will post when I have them. Having done a few searches on the net It does appear there's a link between hypothyroidism and rhinitis. My nose and sinuses can go dry especially after eating or getting up in the morning.

Can anyone shed any light please?

Thanks for the reply Mary, may I ask what symptoms do you have


Attacks are triggered by fumes - perfume, air 'fresheners' , any chemical sprays, fumes from old diesle vehicles left running etc. This makes breathing difficult so I have to avoid people wearing strong or excessive perfume and people using sprays. Have post-nasal drip.

I also have chronic sinusitis . Have small, abnormally shaped maxicilliary sinuses with the drainage holes in the wrong place (at the top). So the surgeon made them bigger while he was in there. I had a Bi-lateral exploratory of the Maxicilliary Sinuses. Several months earlier I had a Corrective Rhinoplasty. Decades ago.
