  1. Thank you so much, I’m definitely going to try this stuff! I also just incorporated a saline nasal spray in addition to the Flonase (ENT recommended it) so hopefully that helps. Maybe I wasn’t using the proper words haha I do a bad job trying to explain this stuff. I guess I mean that it feels like something is pulling when I try to sing in my middle/upper register...like its harder to channel my mixed voice the way I’ve been able to. When I try to bring my voice up and not use only strictly chest, it’s like theres something blocking it and I’m forced to use more chest in the mix, which pulls and wears me out. That may have not made any sense hah but I’m sure you can imagine what I’m trying to say. But I’m totally going to try those tips!
  2. Hey guys, I was wondering if I can get some advice from you. I’m a male singer in my 20s, typically sing in a similar register as people like Gavin DeGraw. I typically do 3 hour (sometimes 4) acoustic gigs with a break or two in there. Ive always off and on had some issues with mucus and post nasal drip. But lately, over a lot of this year, it’s been much worse. There’s just an overload of mucus build up, sometimes I feel it more as a drip and sometimes it just feels like my nasal passages are tight. It has made my usual 3 hour gigs MUCH more tiring....it’s like the mucus is affecting my technique. Like there’s something blocking me when I try to bring my voice up into mixed voice and incorporate my nose for proper technique. Like there’s a wall blocking that area off or something, so I’m forced to use a not as healthy technique to hit the higher register which wears me out so much quicker. Basically, singing in my upper register/mixing doesn’t feel nearly as easy as it has in the past. Ive been allergy tested and have a dust mite allergy, i now take an antihistamine at night, Flonase in the morning and Mucinex as needed. I don’t have a ton of dairy and especially try to avoid it around my gigs. I drink a lot of water. I also run a lot and consider myself to be in good physical shape. Does anyone else have experience dealing with this, and if there’s any ways to deal with it?
