24-yr-old girl may be suffering more than anyone else on Earth due to constant Hypersalivation & other Breathing Difficulties. Hear me out!
ABOUT THIS CASE FILE
TOP 3 SYMPTOMS: Hypersecretion of saliva every waking minute, chronic nasal congestion only 10% airflow, difficulty taking a deep satisfying breath when in positions that put pressure on my chest/diaphragm/belly. I also have about 30 more other symptoms affecting every part of my body. Dysautonomia could explain many of them.
HOW HAS THE CONDITION AFFECTED YOUR LIFE?
I think I may be suffering more than anyone on this planet. Why? Because of hypersalivation, I cannot, ever, just lean back and relax, which is a privilege granted to almost every other person on earth, even the bedridden ones. Here's the explanation: Because my nose is clogged, I must mouth breathe. But since my mouth is constantly filled with saliva I must keep my head tilted down all the time to avoid inhaling the spit and choking. If I keep my head eye level or face upwards, I must swallow every 3 seconds to avoid choking. Doing this is beyond exhausting & I can only keep it up for half hour or so. I can't sit in a recliner, watch TV/movies, or even lie on my bed for a short nap. To add insult to injury, now I can't even lie on my stomach to relax (letting the saliva drain out through gravity, thus eliminating the need to always swallow) because I can't get a deep enough breath if there's pressure on my diaphragm area or rib cage. At night I must lie on my side with my head tilted down painfully to drool so I can take a break from swallowing. The psychological & physical strain of always having to avoid choking is unimaginable & I cannot live like this much longer. I feel suicidal from this, every day.
CONVENTIONAL MEDICINE DIAGNOSES & TREATMENTS:
-"Sialorrhea" Tried unsuccessfully Atropine eyedrops under tongue, Scopolamine Patch, & Clonidine. Clonidine reduced salivation but still can't breathe without swallowing
-Nasal Congestion diagnosed as Dust Mite Allergy, though I disagree. Tried unsuccessfully Flonase & Azelastine Nasal Spray with Allegra.
-Chest Pressure no diagnosis. Tried unsuccessfully pursed lip breathing & distraction in case it's anxiety. It's definitely posture related, likely structural.
ALTERNATIVE MEDICINE THEORIES & TREATMENTS:
-Looking into if root cause of all these symptoms is Mold/Biotoxin illness (CIRS). Muscle/energy testing pointed to this, but I don't know if I trust it so I need evidence.
-I do have Adrenal Fatigue (HPA Axis Dysfunction) / Hormone Imbalance, from DUTCH & saliva testing. Tried supplements, but I cannot relax so it's hard to heal.
-Looking into if tick-borne illness. Conventional bloodwork showed no Lyme. Muscle/energy testing pointed to Babesia & other "parasites", but I need evidence.
