Excessive mucus

For the past year and a half I've had excessive mucus in my throat. Every day I am producing lots of mucus and have to clear my throat many many times. The mucus is usually clear/white, thick, slimy, and sticky.

I know what I am about write sounds crazy but its true. I truly believe that my symptoms are contagious. It seems as if people who sit by me (school and work) get sick and eventually develop the same symptoms as mine. I have noticed many times that people get stuffy noses or seem uncomfortable when they sit next to me. Sometimes they develop a cold within a day or two. And eventually start clearing their throats which hurts me. Making the same noise that I make which sounds like "mmm mmm'. I have isolated myself from everybody in fear getting them sick. I am depressed, sad, lonely, and miserable.

I have seen many doctors and ENT's but have not been cured or properly diagnosed. Currently I am taking a steroid nasal spray and allergy pills. Which do not help at all. I am also using nose irrigation which at first seemed to work but lately has not been as effective. Probably because of the change in climate.

If there a reader who has shared this same problem I would be happy to here from you. Any kind of support or advice would be appreciated.

(forgive my writing, lots of I's)
