How to cure bad drainage in throat,ears and sinuses?

Hello, I am a 30 yr old female mother of two. I weigh 230 and I am 5 6. Im having bad drainage in my throat and ears and sinuses. The drainage in my throat never leaves is is usaully clear and jelly like, with a touch of brownness fron time to time. I have a small raised bump on the inside of my throat, three in a row, very small, also Ive noticed small thin red lines on the inside of both of my nostrils, My sinuses r filling up every 5 minutes and my mucus from my throat and nose are thick, clear and jelly-like. Having indigestion off any and evrything I eat and drink, including water. I have no insurance, so Im looking for a general idea before seeking help and paying out of pocket. Thanks in advance

Hi..

Drainage down the throat also known as Post nasal drip can occur due to causes like Sinusitis, Upper Respiratory Track infection, acid reflux, allergies etc..

In your case it seems to be due to SInusitis or sinus inflammation..

I would suggest you to consult an Otolaryngologist and get evaluated and a thorough clinical evaluation and investigations depending on clinical symptoms like PNS View x ray, nasal endoscopy, upper G.I Endoscopy etc can help in diagnosis and treatment can be planned accordingly..

In case of infection you can be advised to take a course of antibiotics, ant-inflammatory painkiller, decongestants oral as well as nasal spray, anti allergics and mucolytics..

As of now you can take anti allergics like Levocetrizine, Mucolytics like Ambroxol..
If it is due to acid reflux antacids and proton pump inhibitors like Omeprazole and diet modifications can be advised..
In case of allergies anti allergy medicines and preventing exposure to allergen can be advised..
Do warm saline gargles and steam inhalations..
Limit exposure to dust and also avoid chilled foods..
Sip on warm water..

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

I have pain at all sinus regions on my face, also plugged ears, swollen behind my jaw/under ears, my upper jaw hurts extrememly bad. I am not congested at all, I am not coughing, sneezing, have no problems breathing. I have constant drainage going down the back of my throat which causes severe pain in my throat. I ve taken antibiotics and they did not help at all. I also keep a humidifier in my room which is running constantly, I use saline nose drops. I take sudafed. All of these help minutely, but never take away the pain all together.

I have to constantly clear my throat, it has been going on for a few years. It doesn t bother me when I go to bed but as soon as I get up in the morning it starts and sometimes it lasts all day long. If I chew gum it seems to help for awhile but that isn t working all the time anymore. I am on Prilosec and I can feel a lot of sinus drainage. It is very irritating to me and to people around me. What can I do. I have made an appt. with my PCP next week. Do you think I need to see an ENT specialist? WWW.WWWW.WW

Hi, My names Joe and I had sinus surgery 3 days ago(on Monday) to correct a slightly deviated septum, widen sinus cavities, and remove an air pocket. It is now Thursday and my septum splints have been removed but I am having an extremely big problem breathing through my nose, my right nostril in particular. It feels as if theres 2-3 tiny bumps in my nose restricting airflow. I was wondering how soon it will be before I will regain breathability in my nose and for any tips?
