I am going crazy!

I have tried almost everything:

OTC drugs
Prescription drugs
Prescription nasal spray (all of them)
Neti pot
Nasal irrigation bottle
Boiling water

I can blow my nose b/c it is so swollen, my eyes feel like they are bugging out of my head, I also have pain and a headache, I am dizzy and lightheaded 24/7, I sneeze 10-15 times a day, and my ear crackle every time I swallow. I also have a really weak sense of smell.

I have had this for years and It is not a sinus infection, etc...

I have been to 2 allergy doctors and both just say I am allergic to dust mites so I bought covers for my mattress and pillows. I tired to shots for a while but it became really time consuming and I stopped. Nothing I have done has made a difference. How can I be this effected by JUST dust mites? I have this problem all year-round.

Has anyone done the full cycle for the shots? Does it work?


Any other recommendations? Acupuncture? Sinus surgery?

i m in the same situation, and honestly.. nothing really helps at all
breathe some fresh air and excersise a bit more
the nasal spray makes my nose itch even more and sneeze right after
claritin works sometimes.. but not really that helpful
