I posted here a couple days ago, although my symptoms have changed so am starting a new thread. Bit of background....I have ashtma and nasal issues. In general though i'm fine, but they are triggered when I get a cold...constant tickly cough (asthma) and congestion doesn't go away until I take meds (different congestion than with cold).
For the past while, i've been fine in the day but wake up congested. It cleared within a few hours and then repeat the next ngiht. The past few days, the congestion is constant. Sometimes when i blow it's clear, and other times (mostly after getting up in the morning or not blowing for a bit), it's thick yellow (which is the same as when my sinuses act up in general). Sometimes there's a bt of pressure in my nasal area, but I feel fine otherwise (i.e. no fever, heachahce, etc).
I am taking nasonex for my nose (2 sprays in each nostril, 2x a day) and advair as the nasonex triggers the tickly cough. Have also been using saline rinse.
My nose is a constant dam, filling up after I blow it. Could this be a sinus infection and thus, should I go to the dr? Or should I give it a few more days on nasonex. It's a long weekend here so won't be easy to go.
(Sorry, I know this is similar to my other post, but am updating the comments and wondering what to do)
Ulcerative Colitis 1988, had colon removed and now jpouch
Now sufer from sacroiliitis and inflammation of piriformis muscle causing sciatica like pain during flare ups. Joints very bad...take celebrex when needed.
Also suffer from asthma (only triggered when I get a cold) and stuffed sinuses.
