Confused. Wikipedia says symptoms of post nasal drip includes wheezing n difficulty breathing but why doc here says post nasal drip does not cause it?

Post nasal drip: Does not usually cause wheezing or difficulty breathing. Sometimes whatever is causing the post nasal drip (a cold or allergies) can also trigger asthma or reactive airways which is really the cause of the wheezing/difficulty breathing, not the post nasal drip itself. Don't believe everything wikipedia says. A lot of it is great information, but not all of it. ...Read more

More history would be needed to pick the culprit: itchy nose or throat could=allergy; lots of sick friends could=a cold; burning throat and lower chest could =reflux; yellow mucus and face pain could=sinus infection. ...Read more

Post nasal drip/facial swelling around the nose/mild cheek swelling. No other symptoms. Any clue?

Drainage and swellin: Your symptoms are most likely allergy related with 'allergic shiner' facies. However, facial swelling is unusual with allergies, unless severe (or angioedema). If the cheek swelling is on one side only then I'm even more concerned about sinusitis or something 'weird' in your nose or sinuses. I recommend an ENT exam (by ENT) just to be safe. ...Read more
