Liver & Sinus issues, looking for holistic remedy

A lot of things are going on with me and I need a holistic approach. I have consulted a few allopathic specialists, and consumed their plethora of medicines, but did not even get a short term relief.

Main Issues:
> Nasal twang in voice since January after a series of sinus infections.Currently there is no post nasal drip. Only blocked nose with occasional one-sided headaches and nasal twang. Mostly right nostril is blocked. But it does alternate.

> Burning in stomach, uncomfortable feeling after eating anything which gets relieved after burping. Stomach is unusually bloated but no pain or other discomfort. Got an ultrasound where they found all organs to be of ok size except there was so much gas that pancreas could not be seen due to it. Med tests revealed high lipase (~80 instead of the high limit of 60) all other enzymes were normal. Get frequent tummy upsets with bouts of constipation in between.

> Feelings of anxiety and panic strike me very easily even with most minor issues. If I fertilize my plants even while wearing gloves, I get so anxious that I will not eat with my hand that day. If I eat something different, I get panic attacks that it is going to cause me harm or allergy in some way.


Other significant test results: low vitamin D, low calcium, high homocystine.

Is there someone who can take up the case?

4. What exactly do you feel when you are at your worst?
*** feel overwhelmed and want to go to an open place with fresh air immediately. I prefer talking to somebody as it serves as a distraction from my current feelings.

5. When did it all start? Can you connect it to any past event or disease?
*** Nasal issues began in January with back to back sinus infections which caused me fever, body aches etc. thick mucus which refused to go away for many weeks. Then from March onwards, the fevers subsided alongwith the mucus, but i got a nasal twang in my voice.

8. Do your think your sufferings have relation to any external stimuli (like, change of
place) or any internal biological changes in the body, like, menses (in females)?
*** sinus issues - no relation just get flare ups when nasal irritants are around. other times, the problem is there in the background never really gone
acidity - comes on with spicy food & hunger.
anxiety - always strikes when I am trapped somewhere there is no escape - like an aeroplane, or moving train. not in lifts since i can stop it anytime.

9. When do you feel better, during hot weather or cold weather, humid or dry weather?
*** cannot tolerate excessive heat or cold. Get headaches with intense light & heat. In moderately cold weather also, I need to be covered up in jackets. I suppose humid weather is most tolerable.

Changeable, Nervous, Suspicious, Easily offended, Quiet, Arguing, Irritating, Lazy etc.

Today my acidity is really freaking me out. It feels better when I am moving about (i get burps) but does not go away.

Untill a few months ago, I never had such issues. not even during pregnancy. I have taken nux vom 30, but no respite.

Just realized the strong acidity could be due to the antibiotics I completed last week. I am not able to modify the questionnaire to reflect the symptoms to the time period before starting antibiotics. But main difference was that I still had acidity started shortly after the bout of sinus infections but they were mild symptoms limited to :

abdominal gas,
discomfort from swallowing air while eating
Relieved after burping or taking Carminatives
Burning in tummy only on ingestion of spicy food.

Hope this helps in the diagnosis
