post nasal drip ?

Hey guys, Im a 28 y/o male, vegetarian, non smoker and non drinker.

Heres the story,

for the last 2 years I seem to get a cold every 3 - 4 weeks which usually takes me out for a week. After countless trips to the dr, anitbiotics and $$$$ I went to a specalist who ended up taking out my tonsils. He also stated I have a post nasal drip and wasn't sure if the drip was causing the tonsilitus or the tonsilitus causind drip.

So 2 months on after removal, same thing again. Again with antibiotics, another trip to the specialist sees him claim its 'allergies'. He gave me a nasal spray which seemed to work for the last 4 weeks. Now I am again sick and this time it feels worse, typical headaches, nausea, sore throat (very red). Stomache pains.

No I know I said I don't eat meat but all my levels are fine and diet is good, apart from this im relatively fit.

So I'm now on Penicillin VK and they make me feel like $#$$. And I know this will only be another temporary fix. I have a funny feeling its more to do with my drip, (I can feel flegm running down my throay most of the time and that doesn't help an already stuffy head. It's usually yellow / green in colour....if that helps.

Anyways, any suggestions? This is taking too much of my life away and is starting to have effects on my mental state. (IE, Getting bery angry and apathetic becuase I feel lik $5%#@ most days.)
