This is Dr. David
I am sorry you are having dealing with this for so long.
you could have a chronic sinus inflammation and you might need sinus surgery to help open up your sinuses if you have a blocked nose for a long period of time.
do you smoke? smoking can worsen your lungs ability to fight off infections.
i used to smoke but stopped 14years ago......i do get a blocked nose,i think that is why i have the aching in my chest as i have to breath through my mouth which makes it feel worse in the cold weather
I'm glad you stopped smoking before.
a humidifier might help
but it sounds like your issues could be coming from your sinuses.
you should consult with an ENT doctor and get a sinus CT scan.
if you have long term blockage of your sinuses, you might need sinus surgery to help open up blocked sinuses and help them drain better.
and this way you might be able breath better at night with your mouth closed.
sounds like you have already tried many antibiotics and steroid nasal sprays already.
so i need to convince my doctor to refer me to ENT department
you are welcome
best of luck to you
