Dear Concerned,
Thanks for writing to us.
As per the history you have been suffering from Acute exacerbation of Chronic Asthmatic Bronchitis every year.
Have you been to a Pulmonologist?Have you done the Basic Blood Tests/Urinalysis/Chest X-Ray/Lung Fuction Tests.Have you done your Absolute Eosinophil Count?
Kindly investigate yourself thoroughly by Consulting an Internal Medicine Practitioner/Pulmonologist and an ENT Surgeon(for Sinusitis part-Whether you have Deviated Nasal Septum/Inferior Turbinate Hypertrophy.)The above is a broad guideline as your clinician who examines you will have many things to instruct you.
After the above protocol ,you will have a Definitive Diagnosis pinpointing at the root cause.
The treatment part will be very simple after a definitive diagnosis is done.

Wishing you a speedy recovery.
Best regards.,
Dr Lt Cdr ASN Bhushan.
