Brief Answer:
nasal allergy and endoscopy.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thanks for your query.

In my opinion, your nasal allergy needs to be evaluated. If I were your treating doctor, I would have clinically examined you first, then would have prescribed steroid nasal spray for 6 weeks+ antihistamines and mucolytics combination drugs for 2 weeks+ leukotriene antagonist for 3 months.

Avoid cold items and oily foods.

Keep yourself warm, avoid air conditioning.

If symptoms recur after 3 months of treatment, then I would suggest you to get allergy skin prick test done, to detect the causative allergen and then go for immunotherapy or allergy vaccines for permanent cure. This needs specialist guidance. You can discuss this with your doctor.

Regarding your acidity, since it is persisting from 10 yrs, it's advisable to get upper GI endoscopy done and treat with proton pump inhibitors + prokinetcs drug for 6 to 8 weeks.
For stomach upset, please consult your physician from clinical examination and treatment.

Empirically, you can take sporolac XXXXXXX thrice daily for 3 to 5 days.

Hope my answers have helped you. Pleased to help you further.

Thanks.
