Brief Answer:
Allergic rhinitis

Detailed Answer:
Welcome to HealthcareMagic and thanks for putting up the query
As the symptoms usually appear with season change, it is probably allergic but as you said you are having sinus symptoms, you should get a x-ray paranasal sinuses done and put xylometazoline nasal drops along with the medicines you are taking.
Follow up with the reports so that I can suggest you better.
All the medicines I have prescribed will be available only on prescription.
Wishing you a speedy recovery.
Take care
Thanks and regards

I am a 54-year-old going thru menopause and have gained quit a bit of weight since then. I m currently experiencing thoat and nose dryness. Can t seem to be able to keep my sinuses moist; I drink 6-7 glasses of water a day. I tried mucinex, saline even 50/50 part water and peroxide sprayed into my nose to kill bacteria and keep my nose moist; the problem gets worse while lying down to sleep; It seems my passages (thoat and nose) begin to close up and it s becomes hard to breath.the mucus in my nose is most times as thick and sticky as glue and I have to continue swabbing a Q- tip with water to keep it moist. I often stuggle to make enough saliva in order to be able to swallow. THANKS.

10 yr old daughter s symptoms are sneezing that clears her sinus cavities several times a day even though she has no congestion, drainage, burping, feeling of food sitting in throat or esophagus, nausea, hardness in stomach. Cat scan of sinuses showed very slight inflammation; upper endoscopy w/ biopsies & ph probe were all clear; scratch test for food & environment all clear. Allergy meds, Nexium, Prilosec failed to resolve symptoms. What might cause these symptoms?

I sometimes get a weird feeling in my head. I call it being light headed, but I read about light headedness and my feeling doesn t fit. It is like sinus pressure because it is in the sinuses as well as the top of my head. It doesn t happen all the time, but is annoying when it does.
