Nasal drainage into my throat?

Post nasal drip. Nasal drainage into your throat is the normal pathway nasal mucus takes. You feel this if the volume of mucus is great, like when you have a cold or rhinitis, or when the mucus is thick. Keep yourself hydrated and use saline nasal rinse to thin, and decrease the sensation of mucus passage. If you have allergies, use your medications.
