Hi, I have asthma and allergies and over the last year and half have been suffering from recurring sinus infections which lead to horseness and loss of voice. i am currently taking another course of antibiotics and waiting to been seen by and ear nose and throat specialist but this could take weeks. I have had a permanent chesty cough which brings up brown speckled phlem and throat clearing but the doctor assures me this is linked to the sinuses 'post nasal drip'. I take a steriod inhaler and singulair for the asthma but when I take a deep breath I feel light headed and sometimes my finger tips tingle. Is this normal? Can anyone offer any advice on getting my voice back? This is seriously affecting my life and getting me really down. I feel exhausted all the time and recently resigned from my part time job because of constantly feeling ill. I have 2 young children and really want to feel well again. Im 35 but feel more like 75. Help please.
your life style is not addressed, but I think is possible you are right now in a cold weather and not going out for fresh air, if you have carpets at home, you need to wash them I know this is what make me sick during winter and also if you have pets you have to get rid of them.
I have wooden flooring throughout my house and got rid of my cat a year and half ago because of symptoms. I am a healthy eater, rarely drink alcohol, non smoker. you are right about the lack of fresh air though, Ive hardly been out in a week and a half as weather has been so bad here, lots of snow and ice. The problem has been ongoing since before the summer when I was out and about loads. I dont drive so tend to do a lot of walking. Cant work out why my immunity is so low.
