"home Remedies"
I am sorry to hear about your sickness. I was wondering if you live in a high pollen count area or if your home has had any mold or mildew issues? In my own experience with friends and family, I have seen that since their homes are closed up so tightly to keep "everything" out, they end up having "polluted homes" which can cause tremendous health problems. I read your post and felt bad that you are going through all of this. If any of these things are true let me know. Hope you start to feel better soon.

I am not a Dr. I realize that you might have a fear of dr's but sometimes they are out to help you, if you explain to the dr that you might need something like claritin do you think he might call some in for you without being seen and let him know that you have post-nasal drip and that you have anxiety attacks and nothing over the counter is helping. Have you talked to a pharmacist, sometimes they can help too! It would be better if you would get in to see a dr though, much better then choking or ending up with pneumonia, or just making yourself sicker!
All the best!

Post nasal drip is basically, a runny nose that goes down the back of your throat.

Glands in your nose and throat produce mucus which normally moistens and cleans the nasal membranes, humidifies air, traps and clears inhaled foreign matter, and fights infection. A buildup of mucus in the throat or dripping from the back of your nose is called post-nasal drip.

Post nasal drip can be caused by excessively thick secretions or by throat muscle and swallowing disorders. It is diagnosed by an ENT specialist.
