Phlegm: sounds like you have a post nasal drip. try taking mucinex, (guaifenesin) and avoiding dairy foods for a while and see if this helps. uncontrolled gastritis could also cause post nasal drip. do you have gerd or sour sensation, heart burn. then i would suggest you take prilosec 1 tablet a day.
