At the same time, co2 diffuses into the capilaries and is expelled with exhalation. Oxygen rich blood then flows to the left side of the heart and into the ...Read more
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?

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?
Throat clearing: If you think about where the throat is, it is situated in the middle of a crossroads, so to speak. Food and water go down when you eat or drink and air passes when you breathe. 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

After i eat i always have this crackling in my chest.I hear it when i breathe To get rid of it i have to cough or clear my throat of clear mucus.
Chest crackling: Eating may cause a reflexive asthma like reaction causing the crackling sound and cough instead of wheezing. It may be more frequent with certain foods. 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
