(i know its gross) can holding back the mucous from crying and knowing its going down ur throat cause u to get sick (like a cold for example)?

No: You get sick from viruses getting into your nose or eyes. If you have mucous in your nose from crying it is no different than the mucous your body makes all day (it helps to warm and humidify the air going to the lungs). If you were already getting sick, then it was a week in the making and not from crying. ...Read more

Reflux...: Eating those foods can decrease pressure that keeps acid in the stomach and cause the acid to go up through your esophagus and to your throat area. Mucus is made to protect you from the acid that goes up. Also can cause you to feel 'lump' in your throat. It is usually called GERD or reflux. Change diet, and/or antacids like Prilosec can help. ...Read more
