Brief Answer:
Post nasal drip with imbalance most likely

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
Welcome to HealthcareMagic and thanks for putting up the query..

From the complaints, it seems to be a nasal pathology like a nasal septum deviation or sinusitis which is causing symptoms like post nasal drip and continued hawking.

I'd suggest you get an X-ray paranasal sinuses done. It will also help to diagnose the nasal pathology. The management will depend on the reports.

The imbalance issues can be due to neuromuscular cause or some inner ear cause. Please let me know, do you have any hearing difficulty or ringing in the ears?
For how long are you having these symptoms?

Take a combination of Levocetirizine plus Phenylephrine twice daily along with the nasal spray that you're already taking.
Take tablet Betahistine 16 mg twice daily for a week and tablet Stemetil (Prochlorperazine) 5mg twice daily.
Avoid driving for few days.

All the medicines I have prescribed will be available only by prescription.
Please follow up with the required information so that I can suggest you better.

Take care
Thanks and regards
