Postnasal drip for awhile. Now its causing choking during the night. This week I now have sore throat dull head pain & dizziness. All related? Cause?

Sinus infection: The head pain and dizziness suggest more than a typical upper respiratory infection. The post nasal drip could be draining from the sinuses as well. You might benefit from nasal saline rinses, a nasal spray like Nasonex (mometasone) or Flonase from a physician, and possible an antibiotic course. I'd talk to your physician about all of the above. ...Read more
