Real or imaginary?: If the brain tells you it is there, then it is real for you. Many things can give the sensation. Occasionally it is a tic (habit) and nothing is there.

When I talk thick sticky mucous comes up and I have to clear my throat over and over No cold, no stuffy nose its white. Months & months. Hard to clear?

For the past 7 months I have a constant tickle in the throat that makes me lose my voice when I am talking if I do not clear it by coughing.Pls help.

Hard to say: The fact that the mucus is clear is a good sign.
