Doctor :   Hi
Doctor :   I am Dr AAAAAAA
Doctor :   Please let me go through your query
Doctor :   Hi AAAAAAA , Could you tell me your age ?
User :   hello am 32
Doctor :   First ,I feel that the floppy valve and the reflux is not related to the Nasal Block, which is a totally different problem.
Doctor :   Since when have you been having thi snasal block ?
Doctor :   this nasal block ?
User :   for a number of years now but only in the last couple of years has it go worse mornings are very bad im of work at atm with bad headaches
Doctor :   Did you ever go for an X-ray for the nasal cavities and Sinuses.
Doctor :   Lets take a two pronged approach for the treatment of both the problems.
User :   No i have explained this to docs here but they still put me for BA meal when i try breathing through my nose this makes me gag
Doctor :   Could you also let me know your weight and height ?
Doctor :   What you have tried to discuss with your Doc is absolutely right.
User :   6ft and 12 and a half tone
Doctor :   Ok.
Doctor :   Please follow the following steps : User :   i feel mucus hanging down back of throat all the time
Doctor :   1. Please take the appointment from an E.N.T. as I feel this might be due to a SINUSITIS or due to a NASAL POLYP which can be seen in X-ray or through Rhinoscopy.
Doctor :   Your symptoms with nasal block and headache and difficulty in breathing through nose clearly suggest a block in the air passage.
Doctor :   in the Upper Respiratory Tract.
Doctor :   Hope I am clear in helping you out.
Doctor :   2. For your reflux and floppy valve , you need a life style modification if its minimal or need a surgery if it is very troubling and huge in which case you will regurgitate food and acids making your throat feel sour. Do you have that feeling always ?
User :   yes thanks very much i have an appointment with gp this afternoon and will tell her again about ur suggestions thank you very much for ur help
Doctor :   Thank you for consulting me.
Doctor :   Take care, Bye for now.
User :   yes i do put up foods somtimes but diet changes have helped
Doctor :   That sounds nice. Can discuss about your valve and reflux once you get an ENT check done.
Doctor :   Take care.
User :   ok thank you so much again
Doctor :   Take care, Bye for now.
