769442 tn?1234977598 Hi, my name is Laneka and I'm am currently getting over a viral throat infection. For some odd reason, I have excess mucus in coming from my nasal passage flowing down my throat. I don't know the cause of it and the excess mucus is causing trouble with my eating. It is really hard to eat or even drink anything because of the mucus. I really want to know what I can do. What is the best way to get rid of the excess mucus?
Avatar m tn I was coughing up A LOT of mucus. After about a month without it clearing up, I went to an ear, nose, and throat doctor. He gave me an allergy test and scanned my throat. He said I was allergic to everything. Most on the sheet were rated about a 3 whatever that number means. There was one that was rated a 7 which was some kind of mold. This is what I suspected caused my problems. His solution was to come in once a week for a shot in each arm for 3 months costing me for each visit.
Avatar m tn Then for 3 weeks a lot of mucus all down my throat. Kept feeling like I was gonna choke eating. Then this last week felt like the mucus was in my chest. Doc. said no it isn't so must be somewhere between there and tonsil. I have been kinda worried cause I keep feeling like the back of my throat is closing up, almost similar to gag reflex. Starts to get a little harder to breath, not sure if it's from this symptom or me freaking out about it. Any Ideas on what is going on inside my body?
Avatar f tn Hi, Formation of excess mucus in the throat could be related to smoking, inflammation or infection, allergies etc. Certain medications like antihistamines, decongestants help in reducing the production of mucus. Preventing triggering agents causing irritation of throat mucosa can also reduce mucus production. Steam inhalations or saline nebulizations can help in clearing the mucus in the throat.
Avatar f tn The few common possibilities of your symptoms are acid reflux/GERD, post nasal drip, throat infection, enlarged tonsils etc. If it is a throat infection it can be viral or bacterial in origin Try doing warm saline gargles. That might help. This is only an advice and not a substitute for medical examination. Treatment will depend on the underlying cause. Keep me posted with more queries. Hope it helped. Best wishes and regards!
1487760 tn?1453994876 For almost 3 months I have had a cold, what seemed like a sinus infection, ear aches, tooth aches, sore throat, sore tongue, thick mucus, Now the mucus is not responding to Mucinex and have some lung sensitivity to cold air. What could it be?
Avatar n tn I did have a little bit of mucus inmy throat then but a week later of thick mucus in my throat its geting very bothersom. I am currently on pennicillin and also pregnisone for the inflimation. I am finished with that one though. Do you have any idea what the cause of this is? and do you think is will go away?
Avatar n tn About two weeks ago I suffered from a head cold with blowing out green mucus, coughing up mucus, and etc etc. This past weekend the symptoms improved drastically but for the past couple of days I still have slight congestion with clear mucus and I'm constantly clearing my throat? I have no other symptom and don't even feel sick anymore. Is this kind of like my body getting over the cold or what?
Avatar n tn It has been for a while now every morning when I wake up I spit mucus with blood?
Avatar m tn Hi there, Ear pain, sore throat and headache are common in sinus infection. Along with antibiotics drink plenty of fluids to thin the mucus. Mucous thinning drugs and oral decongestants may also be used, as well as systemic steroids, topical nasal steroids and nasal saline irrigation. Steam inhalation should be continued. It is best to see your doctor and seek opinion for your symptoms. If the ear pain is severe you may need referral to an ear, nose, and throat specialist. I hope it helps.

Avatar m tn The reason I was being persistent at coughing up mucus was because I felt like there was a bit of mucus in the back of my throat that was being stubborn. I could feel it hanging there and it was on the left side. I tried coughing up mucus as hard as I could even to the point where my gag reflex was making me nearly throw up. Then suddenly the mysterious red glob came flying out projectile style and I caught it on my hand.
Avatar n tn What you have experienced could be a simple matter of excessive mucus and accumulation of mucus in your throat due to nasal or throat infection. That would account for the sensation being intermittent. On the other hand, “difficulty in breathing” should be carefully evaluated to be sure that you do not have a lung problem.
Avatar n tn Every time I catch a cold or am treated for a sinus infection, I wind up with a cough due to excessive mucus that won't go away. I'm sure it's from a post-nasal drip because I feel it at the back of my throat. This time around, I caught a virus and was on antibiotics for 2 weeks for a sinus infection. The infection cleared up, but now I'm stuck with this excess clear mucus and I can't get it to stop! I've become a phlegm fountain!
Avatar m tn A week ago i had a sore throat and now it seems like it kinda left something behind. I don't show any kind of symptoms except for my throat area. I've been doing a lot of throat clearing (ahem!!! ahem!!!) spiting out white mucus. Sometimes cough occurs. I can't sleep good at night. My neck tends to sweat a little. And i try to drink more fluids than usual. What should i do? Is there a cure? Please help!
Avatar f tn I have constant mucus in the back of my throat( postnasal or combined with other mucus?) a very stuffy head like its being boiled, my left ear feels clogged or like theres liquid inside, im always tired, and my eyes feel dry and like theres pressure in them, especially the left. On top of that, I have a dull pain on my upper left side of the nose sometimes and my lymph nodes on my throat and arm pits have been swollen before (not now).
Avatar m tn A week later I followed up with my family doctor who gave me predisone to help clear up the bronchitis and help with back issues ( pain, numbness feeling in the upper back all over) , last wednesday (2/26) I went to the minor care place in my city where I was treated by the same doctor who said I had pinched nerve for a sinus infection with (hydrocondone-homathropine syrup, a z pack and a nasal spray) at first I was starting to feel back normal but now my throat has been to bother the heck out
Avatar m tn but after 14 years age it changed and now i feel that when i eat something it produces a lot of mucus after 30 minutes. My throat and lungs fill with thin mucus and i feel a cough attack to clear my lungs and throat. Now my nose is not running in such a way as it was before 14 years age. But ratio of mucus has increased. I think that there is a problem in my throat that it creates mucus and than mucus drops toward lungs and when lungs and throat both r filled, i need coughing to clear my chest.
Avatar n tn The sinuses were like that for a couple of days with a lot of yellow mucus. It took till about day 5 before the mucus started building up in my throat but up till now has been easy to clear (normally I get that crackling in my throat). Now the nose and throat is still a problem. I have about 3-4 hours from when I wake up that I have to keep clearing my throat before it stops. The sinuses are pretty bad, I have to clear them frequently yet they don't actually drip.
Avatar f tn The sinus infection cleared up on its own but for three months now I have had a problem with my sinus/throat. It constantly feels like there is mucus above my throat (between my nose and throat). I constantly snort to try to clear it. It doesn't help. I try to hike up mucus but there is nothing. When I cry or have used a saline nasal spray I can spit out a clear mucus. This is causing me anxiety attacks.
Avatar m tn hi,relax,it is throat infection may be associated with ulcerations.A course of antibiotic along with antiseptic gargles and pain killers will help.May be some local anesthetic spray would be helpful. Please consult ENT sugeon to rule out other possibities. Relax and take care!
Avatar f tn Hello, Post-nasal drip (PND) occurs when excessive mucus is produced by the sinuses. The excess mucus accumulates in the throat or back of the nose.Post-nasal drip can be caused by excessive or thick secretions, or impairment in the normal clearance of mucus from the nose and throat. Various causes for chronic post nasal drip are allergies,viral infections,deviated nasal septum,chronic sinusitis,adenoid enlargement and diseases like sarcoidosis and GERD.
Avatar f tn Just this past week, I have had just mucus in my throat. No sore throat or any of symptoms. But, this morning, I coughed up something odd. My first thought was lung tissue. My reasoning is because I've had bloody mucus come up in the past, but it never looked like this. What could it be? I have a picture.

I have a sore throat as well that feels swollen sometimes or narrow.
Avatar f tn I suspect a lingering illness based on you being a smoker and recently having a sinus infection. Mucus can drip from your sinuses to your throat and cause all sorts of fun inflammation, and smoking would just irritate your throat further. Your lymph nodes are swollen because your body is trying to fight off whatever is wrong. Are you having any other symptoms of illness, like a fever, body aches, tiredness... ? Also, how is your BF doing?
