Chronic Rhinitis

Postby Bebbe » Sat Sep 24, 2011 10:28 pm

Hi :wave: I was just wondering if anyone suffers from chronic rhinitis I have to use a steroid spray every day to stop me from choking in my sleep without it my nose runs when I'm asleep and has completely blocked my airways a few times which is very scary to wake up to find you can't breathe, But what is worrying me is if I go into a deep sleep I still wake up choking, My doctor has prescribed Amitriptyline to help me sleep but I don't want to take it what if I choke in my sleep and I can't wake myself up.(I forgot to ask my Doctor) :(

I suffer post nasal drip and have a nasal spray

My daughter has severe chronic rhinitis and she is on a nasal spray plus an antihistimine.

Also maybe ask to have a test to see if your allergic to anything which maybe a trigger if you have not had one.

Thanks for the reply, I use Beconase nasal spray, I haven't had an allergy test my Doctors just seem to prescribe medication rather than getting to the bottom of what's causing it but I will definitely ask at my next appointment.

My daughter was under the ENT with it and had her bloods done by them.

I personaly IMO recommend flixonase if you feel beconase does not help, ask GP

My daughter was on both of them (separately) at different stages of her life, she was under the ENT and was found to have an 11 month hayfever season as she is allergic to trees as well as ordinary pollen. She had her adenoids out and it helped a bit so she just takes an antihistamine now and doesnt need the sprays so its worth checking on the allergy bit :fingerscrossed: :fingerscrossed: :fingerscrossed: :fingerscrossed:

Hi i have sinus problems and post nasal drip. I have found a sinus wash a lot better than the sprays mentioned as i got used to them!
You can buy sinus wash kits at boots and online. They come with a nasal wash bottle and saline solution. Hope this helps :D

I have done some research on amitriptyline and post nasal drip and apparently these tablets dry you out so you don't have so much mucus, just wondering if these tablets have helped anyone with post nasal drip.

Hi, I was just wondering if anyone suffering from chronic rhinitis has had to go under general anaesthetic. I have to have an operation to remove a dermoid ovarian cyst and I'm worried about choking as I wake up choking if I go into a very deep sleep.

Hi I have chronic Rhinitis and underwent a major operation in feb (unrelated) I took my antihistimine (after checking with the hospital) which was prescribed to me at another hospital after a severe asthma attack. I made sure told my anaesthetist,both about the fibro and the rhinitis/asthma, and there was no problem at all.
Just be sure to tell all the relevant people, and all will be fine. :-)

I've had my check up,the nurse spoke to the anaesthetist and he said that I will be incubated through out the operation and when I come round if I do choke I will be concious enough to wake my self up. :fingerscrossed:

Hope the advice from the nurse helps settle some of those inevitable pre~op worries and jitters Bebbe :fingerscrossed: :fingerscrossed:

Hope the op goes well and you have a good recovery :hugs: :hugs: :blowkiss: :blowkiss:
