You poor thing post nasal drip is the pits! I used a steroid nasal spray (flixonase - fluticasone) which my book said is safe in pregnancy if used correctly (I.e spray it up your nose duh). This helped immensely. Can you go ask for that specifically & see what they say?
It takes about a week of continuous use to work, but once it kicks in so much relief!

It's OTC here in Australia (pharmacist only medicine).
At the very least they should be able to give you some oxymetazoline decongestant spray to use for a few days?

Vicks on your feet and socks on when you go to bed can help.
My FIL swears by chocolate - suck on a piece of chocolate and it stops the tickle, not sure if that's an excuse just to eat chocolate or what, haven't tested that theory.

I have much sympathy HGL, I'm suffering from the exact same thing right now and would be going crazy without pholcodine. There was a children's cough medicine I used a while back when breastfeeding overnight, the active ingredients were just honey and eucalyptus. Which wasn't great, but it was something. Euky Bear brand I think, there might be a UK equivalent?
