I've had this chronic disease for more than 6 years now. I've seen maybe 15 EMT doctors and 2 allergy doctors (all in Asia), and no one has given me a proper diagnosis. They've used MRIs, they took a video inside my nose, etc. I thought it would be worth a shot to ask here if anyone has heard of this problem. In fact I don't even know whether it's an allergy.
What sets this problem apart is that symptoms occur when I speak. If I speak for maybe around 15 minutes, I get pain in my throat, soreness in my nasopharynx area, my eyelids get red and swell, I start yawning. It also feels like my nostrils get inflamed. If I continue speaking, I feel more tired, I even can get a headache sometimes.
If I wear a mask, the effects are reduced. It's also affected by the weather. Sometimes it will rain, and the symptoms come much faster. It also depends on the dryness in the air and whether it's summer or winter.
I also don't know if it's related, but although I don't have a runny nose or sneezing, I always have dried snot in my nostrils that I feel I have to remove manually in order to breathe better.
I'm determined to get this problem resolved. I hope someone can offer some advice! Here's what I've tried:
-Allergy medicine (I'll have to try this again as I'm not sure whether this relieved symptoms)
-Decongestants (It helped me breathe better but I can only take this for a few days at a time)
-and a drug to prevent Acid Reflux (but I only used it a little bit because I didn't believe it was the problem)
- Two allergy tests (blood tests) which didn't turn back anything, except house dust
I've taken some others but can't remember off the top of my head.
I appreciate you reading this!
