Can post nasal drip or reflux (which isn't bad) cause waves of nausea and a lump in throat sensation? been going on for a couple months.

Both or either one : Both of these problems could cause a feeling of a lump in the throat. I personally feel reflux is more likely to cause the nausea feeling. An ENT can look over the whole picture and help you with the best treatments.
