I have to clear my throat quite often throughout the day because I have thick mucus in the back of my throat that looks like snot when I spit it out. I have no other symptoms. It is worse in AM. How do I know if it's coming from lungs or nasal?
Allergies.: That sounds like allergies. Nasal congestion, runny nose, cough, post-nasal drop, headache, facial pains and earache can be triggered by fragrances, dust mites (sweeping the floor), grass, trees, pets, environmental molds and such. There are outdoor and indoor allergens. See a doctor soon, here or locally, as there are medications that may help. ...Read more

Got flutter feeling in chest and then made me want to clear my throat with a cough. Is this GERD? I am anxious and hope it is not my heart.
Every day, I constantly clear my throat. I do it every minute or less. If I try not to, I get a tight feeling in my chest. What could this be?

Your mouth and nose are above your voice box and your stomach is below. Post-nasal drainage could cause your symptoms and this could be allergies. Reflux can also be coming from your stomach and causing the same issue. ...Read more

Another possibility is gastroesophageal reflux with some aspiration into your trachea. I recommend that you consult a gastroenterologist for evaluation and advice. A swallowing study and barium swallow examination may be advised ...Read more
