Something in back of throat behind the uvula i think its mucus i keep swallowing it but more comes back it feels like.how to get it to STOP. IRRITATED?

Post nasal drip

Pharynx
Hello, you are experiencing a movement of mucus from the nasal cavity to the oropharynx. This mucus carries dirt, viruses, bacteria and chemicals your nose filters while breathing air. If this mucus dries, it thickens and causes irritation. Drink more water, use an OTC saline nasal spray. If the symptoms are associated with sneezing, an allergy could be present. An antihistamine should help.

Symptoms

I don't know what it is in that you are describing. Don't know if you have a lesion, anxiety, infection or just the sensation. Because you are difficulty breathing - recommend urgent medical evaluation.

Globus sensation

Let the ENT know you have a "globus sensation". He/She will conduct a thorough examination including a flexible laryngoscopy to make sure it is not a serious condition.
