Welcome to the allergy forum. I see you joined Med help in October. Have you ever talked to your family doctor about your sniffling problem. This is not Tourette's syndrome. Tourette's syndrome is quite different and the symptoms are very different. If you haven't talked to your doctor about this issue, perhaps it is time to do so. I have not had this problem myself , but I have heard of other people who have this issue. Sometimes it is just a habit. Have you ever considered that this sniffling could be due to an allergy. Have you ever had a skin allergy test ? Do you have nasal discharge in other words does your nose run or would you say you feel like your nose is stuffed up ? You could be allergic to something and not even know it and this could be causing your sniffles. I hope something I have shared with you or suggested will be helpful for you. I wish you well. Eve
All of the above sadly. Ive had the skin allergy test and turn out to be allergic to pretty much my whole state I currently live in. My nose oftenly runs and it stops after awhile. Ive gone to practicly everyone that could help me with this. Just cant find correct help without a side effect on the medication im prescribed from the doctor im with. Im on these drops that take 4 years to take any effect on helping this problem. Its actually a "tic" said from all the doctors I have seen ocasionally called a "motar tic". Maby some of thid reply might give u any ideas.
Sounds like sinusitis to me , maybe an infection it will be treatable I expect ask the Doc for a med he should be able to see if it is that .This year I have had similar and I sneeze a lot and I do know maybe an allergy med like Benydryl can be helpful, I can imagine the sniffing makes you feel uncomfortable ..Have a good blow now and again during the day, kind of clear the mucus out ..good luck
