Re: [IP] cold that won't go away



I hd this problem in the past, only I would usually have it for 3-4 months. I
finally kept bugging the dr about it and he asked me if I wanted to go to a
pulmonar y dr (lung specialist), well to make a long story short, it turned out
that I had post nasal drip - was n't aware of any drips - once I took the
medication for it it disappeared withi n a wk. I had another one several months
later, treated as post nasal drip, then it was gone within a wk!
