A couple people in my office were talking about using neti pots for saline nasal rinsing. I have a problem with chronic "post-nasal drip" (not sure that's exactly what it is, but that's the best description I have of goo buildup in my throat)...not stuffed up enough to impede breathing through my nose, but enough to result in constant throat clearing. Drives DH nuts. Has anyone here had any success with a neti pot to clear up such symptoms? I think I might try it anyway - it certainly can't hurt.
If I don't see significant results with the neti pot, I am thinking of trying an elimination diet after the holidays. There was a previous thread which discussed this, which got me interested. I don't intake a lot of dairy, which I gather would be the prime suspect mucus-producer, but I do feel that my symptoms are worse after eating. I went to an allergist a couple years ago, who poo-pooed the idea that it was food related, and whose solution was to give me different drugs to try (inhaler, prilosec, prevacid, etc.). So I'm not against going to another doctor, probably an ENT, but I'd like to see if I can narrow it down a bit on my own first.
Any advice, thoughts, experiences?
