Patient

Q: Hello,
I am 19. Everyday when I wake up, I feel like I caught flu, but I feel better after I get up from bed. I am starting to worry that it might be something serious, like asthma. What do you think it is?
Thank you very much.

Doctor

A:   Welcome to Ask The Doctor.
We are here to help you.
You seem to be suffering from Chronic Sinusitis and Post Nasal drip.

I would advise you to get following investigations done:
1. Xray PNS
2. Absolute Eosinophil count.

I advise following treatment in such scenario:
1. To do steam inhalation 4-6 times a day.
2. To take anti-allergic like Levocetirizine
3. In cases, who don't respond to anti-allergic drugs, Fluticasone Nasal spray helps greatly.
Share my opinion with your Doctor before acting upon it.

I hope it helps.
Stay Healthy.
