It may be from irritation caused by acid reflux - soreness worse when lying down, or after a belly-filling meal, or fluids. If those causes make sense, then address them & see if you feel better.

Sinus puncture (extremely painful, 12 more sessions to go) plus antibiotics with cold/respiratory sympt and tiredness. Before only had light sore throat for 3 weeks and asthma. Appropriate treatment?

Stop the torture: This used to be done about 40 years ago. No more puncture. Get a ct sinus to find out what the problem is. Then make sure your nasal mucosa is not swollen. See an allergist to find out what the trigger is and whether you have an immune defect. You may also try irrigating the sinuses with saline on a daily basis. Doxycycline is not the drug of choice. Need new doctor. ...Read more
