Sore throat : Your night shift has nothing to do with the symptoms. It could contribute to it as your timing outside the house being at night may predispose you to colder temperatues and you could catch more infections in the cold. You should see your doctor as you could have strep throat or mono if you have neck glands. ...Read more

I have a horrible feeling of mucus lodged behind my nose and at top of throat and feels like choking me. How to deal with this?

Nasal mucous: It is normal for the nose to make mucous, but what you are describing sounds excessive. Usually when there is excessive mucous production, there is a reason. Allergies, nasal or sinus infection are common causes. Even acid reflux can get to the level of the back of the nose. Treatment depends on the cause. You can try some nasal saline irrigation, but if this doesn't help, get checked out. ...Read more

Viral syndrome: Overnight the junk you inhaled over the day gets cleared so you would sneeze or cough it out in AM. That is natural. If only the last few days, consider viral syndrome or effect of bad air in room or cigarettes. Consider investing in an air purifier. If gets much worse instead of better, may have secondary infection and would need to see doc who can send a sputum culture. ...Read more
