No. Only visited doctor a year ago when it had been two weeks, then again this year as it continued. The other symptoms are constant sore throat, shortness of breath, pain esp in Upper back, intermittent wheezing, dizziness, also have numbness in hands and legs, esp when I wake up. Always needing to frequently blow my nose
Cont... As there are too many secretions. The ear was cleaned which lessened the tinnitus a lot but doctor not interested in doing that again and prescribed antihistamines but they did nothing. The only thing to help had been antibiotics but I can't take them all the time and the doctor was very unhelpful. Thank you for your help.
CRPS, though the pain of that is very different to the pain in my upper back. The CRPS started when I was 22, I'm now 37. Thanks ever so much.
Thank you for your answer. So are all the symptoms connected to a chronic sinusitis problem and Eustachian tube dysfunction? The pain in my upper back is severe enough for me to have increased my opioid medication (oxycodone, also on fentanyl patches). Would they also cause excessive secretions and phlegm? Just obviously concerned as so short of breath and the pain being so severe is also concerning. Thanks ever so much for your help!
Thank you. One last thing as I'm not able to have a scan without seeing the doctor again but cannot afford to at the moment. Would anything from the chemist help at all? Is it worth trying antihistamines? Presumably prednisone is prescription only. I actually already use a neti pot but symptoms have been worsening for over a year now so longing for anything to lessen them. Is the back pain due to excessive mucus too?
Thank you ever so much. You've been so helpful. Only wish I could tip more. Have a great day.
