Thank you for your query.

1. These symptoms would be consistent with a Chronic Sinusitis and a Post Nasal Drip (PND). Allergy may have a role in this.

2. A PND XXXXXXX worsen any acid reflux and add to the discomfort that you get after meals.

3. Get your nose and throat examined and request your doctor for an anti-allergic decongestant, mucolytic and anti-reflux medication. regular steam inhalation may help. Diet control will be required.

4. If there is no response to treatment after two weeks, get a plain Sinus CT done. You may share the images here.

I hope that I have answered your queries. If you have any further questions, I will be available to answer them.
