Im a female getting ready to turn 30 this year, I have been a off and on again smoker for 10 years and the past 2yrs have become more heavier. I have had sinus problems for the past 8 years, since I had my nose broke, I never had problems before, this past year I started having severe sinus/allergies and a ear infection. Treated w/antibotics nasal spray,steroids, allergy meds, it all helped for awhile, but all my symptoms kept coming back, I have been to the dr office numerous times the past few monthes concerned cause my throat is sore and my lymph nodes feel swollen, and I can feel my neck swollen, my nasal passage gets blocked, everytime I go to the dr and most of them tell me something different, "its just allergies it will just go away with time, but it hasnt", "its fluid build up in your throat and it will go away on its own, just drink plenty of water smoking makes it worse" ,"its something developmental youve had all your life and its enlarged because its enflamed, it will go away on its own", these are all things that drs have told me from recent visits but most of them end up with the same conclusion w/ giving me a prescription nasal spray..which seems to help..nasacourt..but I am still having pain in my left side of my neck and throat mainly at night and in the morning hours. I have not been to a ENT dr. and Im wandering if it could be something oral, cause I was supposed to have some fillings done last yr but didn't have the money to do them. I hope we all can figure out what this is cause it really stinks!!!
