Brief Answer:
Start nebulizer

Detailed Answer:

Hello,

According to the history you have provided, it seems like a viral situation which has caused your symptoms.

For this, you should start nebulizer with steroids like Budesonide twice per day for some days, a painkiller like paracetamol or Ibuprofen orally for some days too and you will feel better soon.

After stabilization it would be better to do the spirometry test for evaluating the airways better.

Hope I have been helpful. Feel free to ask clarify any doubts.

I have tried the steroid spray for the sinus and also the respirator for asthma neither worked. The nebulizer gets the medicine directly into your lungs correct?

One other thing i should mention. I get excessive Phlegm from my lungs and sinuses. It is predominately white. Does this mean anything?

Detailed Answer:
Hi again

I think this is from sinusitis itself. Try to treat it correctly and especially with the saline lavage and the phlegm will be less.

Hope I have answered your query.
