In brief: Several possibilties
The nose produces about a quart of mucus a day which by ciliary action goes down the back of your throat.
The following possibilities need to be ruled out. 1.) nasal allergy, 2.) non-allergic rhinitis, 3. Rhino-sinusitis. 4.) nasal polyposis, 5.) adenoiditis. (inflammation-of the back of nose). Thus, you need a diagnosis. See an ENT doctor. Bottom line, you need to identify the cause of pnd.
