Dr. David :

This is dr. David

Dr. David :

the heart condition most likely is not connected to the sinus issue.

Dr. David :

which is most likely separate and caused by allergies or chronic sinusitis.

Dr. David :

he might need allergy medications or a steroid nasal spray to help his sinuses.

Dr. David :

or a sinus CT scan to check for chronic blockage of his sinuses.

Customer:

He uses nasonex which opens up the tubes and the fluid starts running down his throat and he coughs and coughs.

Customer:

Is it the heart condition causing the tiredness or the sinus. no point in taking this conversation any further as you are offline.
