I have post nasal drip. It causes nasal block especially

I have post nasal drip. It causes nasal block especially when lying down and sleeping, I have to get up and clean my nostrils with warm water and neti pot. Decongestants made matters worst and I get up at night with very dry mouth and dry nostrils. I feel I have a lump in my throat and hard time getting rid of it. It is affecting my mind and worrying me a lot. It has been going on for 5 weeks and is depressing as I cannot get enough sleep. What shoud I do?

I have chronic sinus issues with post nasal drip...recently(couple of weeks) I ve been having increased sinus pain and blood in my post nasal drip...especially at night or first thing in the morning...I get the taste of blood and my post nasal drip is pink with blood. Is this likely an infection...or something more serious?

I recently began getting smells like cigarette ashes and exhaust fumes especially in our living room where no such smells exist. Sometimes a paper mill smell in my bedroom. A funky indescribable smell in my car. If I take a walk in the park or around the neighborhood I have little or no problem. Once I get indoors, depending on what room I am in I get amplified decrepit odors. When I urinate in the toilet, a wave of toxic urine smell will hit me hard and then it might fade to where it is not noticeable. The misses at home cannot detect these smells. This started with the exhaust fume smells in the living room a couple of months ago, and in the last week it has expanded to other environments and other acrid odors. I get post nasal drip, catarrh, and stuffed nose. Recently I noticed some bloody boogers building up in my nasal passages and I live in an area with a lot of pollen. I made an appointment with my primary physician to set me on the path to see if I can find the cause of this problem. Do you have any observations or insights that might help me in my trying to identify and remedy this distressing problem?

Good Morning Dr I had a very bad sinus attack and started coughing from the post nasal drip. I used a cough syrup and the cough subsided but the nasal drip caused the coughing again. So I used Sinupret Forte for the sinusitis. My blocked nose is completely cleared now. However, I still have the urge to clear my throat often. I have Dazit, should I try that once a day? Also, I stopped with the Sinupret now too. I feel quite fine just that urge to clear throat. Should I continue with the Sinupret and Dazit until it clears completely? Regards ,Hayley
