Hi

For the last month, i've been getting a constant Post nasal drip (mucus) from the back of my throat which I have to spit out like every 1 minute, the mucus is clear, bubbly and incredibly glue like (it sticks to absolutely anything Yuk!)

Also, I have a constant yellowish/whiteish, and sometimes a greenish tint coating at the back of my tongue, it is incredibly thick and I brush every day (with occasional mouthwash), but it continues

Along with the coating, there is a constant foul taste in my mouth and throat, it kinda tastes like acid (I think this "taste" is due to the coating of my tongue, I think i'm always tasting the coating on my tongue and its disgusting)

Furthermore, i've got excessive bubbly and frothy saliva which makes it hard to talk to pppl and just constantly takes over my mouth (sigh). Although I belive this saliva "could" be from my body trying to neautralise all the mucus and coating on my tongue and throat, therefore creating more and more saliva, but i don't know for sure.

Sometimes, the saliva is incredibly sticky and along with the sticky mucus from my throat, it is the worst feeling ever :(

Finally, my hard palate (the bit behind my front teeth) kinda tingles just slightly if I place my tongue on it, which is rly annoying cos my tongue is there all the time. I also have some pressure on my front two teeth but not much

From time to time, I have a bad cough too

I've been to the doctors a few times, had antibiotics for sinuses- did nothing, now they think its acid reflux?? I've just started meds for it a few days ago but no improvement yet and i dont have any heartburn

I've had a lot of sinus issues in the past, but havnt really caused on going symptoms like these, could this be from my sinues?? like an undetectable infection or soemthing?? antibiotics did nothing :(

could acid reflux cause this????

I dnt know if this is related but all these problems started when I used a new toothpaste, which kinda dried out my mouth a lot for a week, and these issues started after. But i dont think it is because of toothpaste lol.


Im totally depressed bcos i hav to go through this everyday . im starting to perform badly in school as well and hav A LOT of anxiety. + i think anxiety is making all the symptoms worse :( i cant talk bcos of the excess mucus/saliva and taste in my mouth

what could cause all of this??? sinus?/ acid relfux??

is there any cure? or home remedies i can use to ATLEAST mask the symptoms, bcos they are depressing me soooo much

thanx a lot guys :( - from a very depressed teenager

  • Rinse and gargle with salted warm water and try using a neti pot for yur sinus. Go back to doc, sinus infections are really hard to get rid of. Good luck and i hope you feel better soon.

Also had vision problems that came on suddenly (still do though), became light sensitive, arthritis, heart palpatatios, stress and anxiety, extreme fatigue, weight gain, insomnia, neuropathy, weakness in my strenth/grip, loss of use of my left shoulder - couldn't lift it much, and several other symptoms I can't even think of right now. I shd also mention that I had epileptic seizures growing up. Well guess what, about 5 years ago when I was diagnosed with AKS arthritis and started researching it, I found that people with pain who stopped eating gluten and dairy, their pain went away. When I removed gluten and dairy from my diet and started eating healthy all my symptoms cleared up. Further research took me to gluten intolerance, leaky gut, and diet/nutrition. Ever since my discovery I research daily and have found so many illnesses associated with gluten dairy and leaky gut. Point being: try googling "your symptoms and gluten celiac dairy" and start reading. I think you'll find a strong correlation. Acid reflux is also a symptom of gluten intolerance. Many diseases are linked to it to. Some sources say 97% of people suffering from this problem go undiagnosed. Take care & good luck! - Lisa p.s. the previous advise regarding sinus problems & nettie pot are also great ones. nettie pots can be purchased at health food stores or on line.
