Hello all,
 
I am usually on the Crohn's forum and ostomy forums and occasionally on the migraine forum.  I have suffered from asthma since I was 5 years old (1984).  I also have many allergies and oral allergy syndrome.  I am wondering what to do about my post nasal drip problems.  I have been unable to get my allergy shots since February due to 2 emergency surgeries and multiple complications to these surgeries.  Until my body fights off my abscess I cannot get the shots.  I take singulair, asmanex and I have albuterol as an inhaler and for my nebulizer.  Due to my allergies acting up my asthma is being more active too.  The post nasal drip I have is mostly in the morning and the severity lessens as the day progresses.
 
The post nasal drip I get makes me feel as though I am going to vomit, but that feeling is only in my throat not my abdomen.  Any tips on helping the PND I do use benadryl as well and my ENT doesnt want me on any allergy nasal sprays.

Hi Stef Have you tried any otc nasal decongestants such as Tylonel Sinus or otc allergy meds like Alevert or Clariten D? Or even prescription allergy meds such as Allegra? If you can't take any of these, you can try saline nose sprays and/or sinus rinses to help combat PND. The saline spray won't eliminate the PND but it might help thin it a bit allowing you blow it out. I don't think you have to clear any saline nose sprays with the doc since it's basically water but if you haven't tried the otc allergy meds, clear it with your doc first. Do you take your Singulair in the morning or night? Is that for your asthma or your allergies? If it's for your asthma, would it harm you to take it in the mornings instead of nights? I use singulair on occasion for my allergies and it seems to work pretty well.

I do have the saline spray she suggested that to me since my sinuses are dry. I have tried Zyrtec, Zyrtec(the 1 with sudafed in it), and Claratin D. These still had to be paired with benadryl since they didnt do much for me. I take my Singulair at night per my Pulmonologist since it is mainly used for my asthma.
