Relationship Between Rhinosinusitis And Nonallergic Rhinitis?
I have a history of chronic rhinosinusitis and non-allergic rhinitis, for almost 5 years I have sinus, the last few months I have a problem with my throat, I was referred from rhino to the larynx pharynx, I was said to have severe stomach acid / LPR, for the past week I always listening is like a heartbeat in my right ear / tinnitus, is this all related?
Hi Widya Annisa
Rhinosinusitis is inflammation of the nose and sinus cavities, while nonallergic rhinitis is inflammation of the nose that is not caused by allergic factors. Although the nasal cavity and throat are still connected to one channel, the disease is not directly related to LPRD (laryngopharyngeal reflux disease).
LPRD leads to inflammation of the mucosal cells of the larynx and pharynx due to the reflux of gastric contents (which are highly acidic) into the esophagus. This can be overcome by taking medication from a doctor, maintaining a diet (avoiding foods that are too sour and spicy), managing stress well and avoiding the habit of sleeping after eating.
Need to clarify what you feel in your ears? have you been hearing a clearer heartbeat lately, or are you experiencing tinnitus/ringing in your ears (the sensation of hearing a 'ngiiiiiiing' or 'nguuuuuuung' sound).
If you mean tinnitus, it is necessary to have a direct examination to determine whether the complaint is directly related or not. Although most of the symptoms of tinnitus are related to a respiratory infection or the use of certain antibiotics.
If the tinnitus persists, interferes with your activities or causes other symptoms such as loss of balance, dizziness or decreased hearing, then consult a doctor immediately.
I hope this information is helpful,
