Phlegm that is stuck: A "tickle" cough can be a sign of post nasal drainage. Mucous specific syrups or tablets are readily available. Decongestant medicines can help if the phlegm build up is related to sinus drainage. Also consider trying to sleep with an elevated head or with a bedside humidifier. All the best! ...Read more

Im a smoker. I feel like there is phlegm stucked in my throat. Is there something i need to worry about?
I keep getting this constant phlegm stuck in my throat and I feel like I keep needing to swallow all the time, what could be the cause of it?
Feels like I have phlegm stuck in my throat. I don't smoke.I also burp all lot not because of over indulging food. Should I be worried?
Maybe you should...: When taken together, globus sensation & air swallowing with resulting belching are consistent with stress/anxiety, but from here we can't rule out GERD, dysmotility, or even atypical cardiac pain. You did not provide us your age relative to age-appropriate risk factors for the latter. If any doubt or you know yourself to be at risk, please get checked. ...Read more

My TSH is 0.25(l)after eating my throat get irritating &phlegm stuck in my throat.Wat I have to eat to get normal.I could'nt sleep feel heavy breath?
Not related: I'm not sure if your throat issue has anything to do with your thyroid. Your TSH is low, but looks as if you just changed dose from 100-->75mcg. I bet your throat issue has more to do with allergies or asthma or some other condition. I see you are on prednisone, maybe related to that condition? See a doctor for throat and neck exam and evaluation. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
