Customer Question

This is my story . I quit caffiene October 2020 and developed anxiety and then I quit cause I had silent reflux on my throat then I delevolped reflux on chest due too anxiety . Thought I had pssd in April last year after taking amitripline. All these pretty much resolved . Then I got ill November 2021 and by January I still ill so I researched and realised maybe sinisitis. Since then I have been going mad had too take 3 courses of antibiotics too clear it but my anxiety obviously went through roof . And I had private ct scan done and it said mild sinisitis. Now I was doing ok April too June started too recover and only remaining symptom was tight nose and mucus . Then I caught covid and all my sinus symptoms seemed too clear by week 2 of covid . But week 4 I developed post nasal drip and it thicker . Now I getting mainly one side face discomfort with post nasal drip sometimes . I thought I tell you my story so you have a better idea what I been through . What you think ?
