I have been coughing since sept 2013 X-ray done & clear cough is under control, My throat burns when I talk. Excessive mucus clear, what's wrong?

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

After I chew this certain gum, it feels like my stomach all the way to my throat burns. Could I be allergic to something in the gum?

I would say if this occurs only when chewing a certain type of gum. Then you might be allergic to something in the gum. But you should be concerned if you feel that your throat is swelling up and it is difficult to breath/swallow. If you do have difficulty swallowing or breathing after chewing this gum or any other food, you should contact emergency services (ambulance) and go to the ER ...Read more
