Unusual: If this has been ongoing for awhile see your MD. May have some irritation - leaving article about acid reflux. If you are a smoker may have some tissue irritation. Use humidifier at night to keep tissues hydrated but if this continues for more than a week get a good check up - especially if voice changes or problems with swallowing. http://www.webmd.com/heartburn-gerd/guide/reflux-disease-gerd-1
