I've had sinus drainage for my entire life. In 3rd grade I would get sick in the morning with all the mucus that drained into my stomach. My doctor put me on Dallergy JR. Eventually I took Zyrtec every night. I saw an allergist, so they said I have 'environmental rhinitis' because I didn't react to anything abnormally. I'm 20 today and I still have this problem. I want to find a natural solution for it because I have a hard time exercising without choking on mucus.

I had surgery on my nose to remove 2 small basal cell carcinomas. The doctor elected to do a flap on each. First one for a spot on the tip of my nose was a flap starting above and between my eyebrows all the way down to the tip of my nose. The second, a teeny spot on the side of my nostril was another flap involving the entire bottom side nostril. I now have a continuous nasal drip on that side nostril. The surgery was about six weeks ago.

I am in general good health and take statin and reflux medication. The main symptom is a constant clicking in my head, mostly left side, and most intrusive at night when trying to sleep. Pressure in my head builds up gradually until I can no longer sleep and need to sit up in bed. Sneezing now takes place and pressure is relieved. Process now repeats until morning. Breathing is easy and does not affect any activity. Pressure is mostly at bridge of nose. Condition has persisted for more than fifty years. I use smelling salts to clear blockage. I am fed up.
