Hi all, 6 months ago I posted this thread,

i was complaining of a constant sniffing problem to which has not gotten any better, as stated, my nasal passage is very clear and I breath very easy however I am continually trying to clear what feels like some sort of blockage from my nasal passage to my mouth, it always feels like there is pressure against something, it is not really sniffing (so it may not be a nasal problem as first mentioned)but seems like some sort movement of the muscles in this area and sometimes i sort of snort similar to that you would do to cough up phlegm.
My specialist has suggested it may be a muscular disorder.

my new question is,
are there specialists in diagnosing muscular disorders? and if there is can they be treated? (my current specialist has basically said he cannot help)

you cannot believe how miserable you feel with this continual discomfort.
Any reply would be appreciated.
