Suggest treatment for runny nose and sneezing due to allergies

I've had a stuffy/runny nose for close to ten years now. Not allergies. I sneeze constantly. It worsens in the way I move my head up or down. It cleared up during both pregnancies, The only thing that has helped temporarily which was perscribed to me a long time ago was to use a baby nipple on an inhaler and snort it in my nose. I need releieft help!

Hello
As you mentioned that you are having stuffy nose and sneezing continuously but NO ALLERGY. Symptoms worsen with movement of head.
You got temporary relief with inhaler .
All these symptoms may be due to , these reasons , these include.
1 Rhinitis :Inflammation of nasal lining membrane as this produces these sign and symptoms .
Nasal itching
Watery rhinorrhea
Nasal obstruction
Sneezing
post nasal drainage
Headache impaired smell morning cough ( in few cases ).
When such type of patient visit my clinic I advise them to take monteleukast+ fexofenadine tablet one or two in day according to severity of symptoms .
Ephedrine +saline spray in nostril also provide instant relief ( few patient feel palpitation ) .
2 NASAL septum deviation . Nasal examination is important .
Optional in patient with/mild intermittent symptoms.
preferably performed by endoscopy .
Nasal exam may reveal the following:
--Swollen nasal turbinates
---Nasal crease
--Rhinorrhea w/ clear , cloudy or colored discharge
mouth breathing.
In my opinion consult an E N T specialist and get his opinion.
Hope this information will be helpful for you.
