Did you see an ENT or your primary care? I would for sure look for a good ENT, as this should be able to be fixed, though not always. I would say pursue the hell out of it or your next stop may be the psych ward! If you are going to visit the coast any time soon (you live closer than I do) you may try to see a Dr there, as they will very likely have better insight than someone who is very landlocked.
