Ok a little bit of history. In my 20s, lived a full life of fitness, sport and marathon running so PFTs were never an issue. Near the end of 2008, I noticed I had a blocked nose for like a month, then a month turned into 2 months then all of a sudden any sort of fitness was labouress as I couldnt get enough O2 to run properly. Anyway, my next move is immunology treatment to see if that helps as Ive tried every nasal drop and antihistamine out there. I am looking to get deployed to Herrick but if my sinuses are still flaring up I reckon I have no hope in hell. You never know, maybe an environment with better weather will help. I have come to the conclusion it is the place I am living in at the moment that is causing the aggravation (started a year after moving in). Did an 8 mile CFT and got through that ok and felt good at the end but just the stuffy nose is still really frustrating. Anyone else have any allergies as such? This isnt a life threatening condition, just very uncomfortable feeling like I have a constant cold. The only thing that gives me relief and lets me be normal again is cortisteroid tablets prescribed by my GP. I dont know what the Forces view on that is either.
