Hi there... this is my first time on here... and I am hoping that someone can help me..... I have had a problem for around 12 years... I am always stuffed up.... I can hardly smell and almost half of the time I do not taste my food..... My doctor has given me flonase.... but it didnt help... then he said that he would send me to a ear nose and throat specialist... but he didnt.... and when I ask him he said that noone would look at me until I quit smoking... well I quit smoking 4 weeks ago... and I thought that things would get better.... because I truly think that I am allergic to smoke... but I am no better than I was before.... I have alot of phlem in my throat as well..... and everynight I go to bed with kleenex stuck up my nose... not a pretty sight... I dont know if my sinuses need to be drained ... or if I should demand another allergy test...as it has been years since my last test... and I was allergic to quite a few things way back then,,,,, any suggestions? thank you
