All day everyday constantly clearing throat, swallow alot feels like something not letting saliva go down, plegm buildup, worse after I eat. Why?

All day everyday constantly clearing throat, swallow alot feels like something not letting saliva go down, plegm buildup, worse after I eat. Why?

Could be GERD w/LPR: Exposure of the vocal cords to stomach acid, pepsin will result in inflammation of the vocal cords (as is also often seen with acid regurgitation). Acute laryngitis may result, but watch out for chronic hoarseness, throat clearing, airway spasms, bronchitis, an asthma-type presentation, and even a higher risk of throat cancer. Impedance pH testing with a symptom diary can best characterize this. ...Read more

Dyspagia: Dyspagia (difficulty swallowing) is a worrisome symptom and warrants medical evaluation right away. Please schedule a visit with your doctor. You will likely need a special test called a barium swallow or an endoscopy. These tests will allow the doctor to visualize your upper GI tract including your esophagus in hopes of finding out why you are having difficulty swallowing. In addition you will be evaluated for possible allergies, and even acid reflux as a cause.
Please see your doctor as soon as possible.
Good luck. ...Read more
