In brief: Milk allergy
Could be that you have allergies to milk products.
Try soy yogurt and see if that helps.

In brief: Not really
Studies have not confirmed a relation between dairy and mucus.
The problem may be consistency (strained, denser product than regular yogurt), reflux of stomach contents into esophagus which could increase mucus production, fat content (greek yogurt comes 0%-4% fat), protein content (twice regular yogurt or milk) unlikely to be allergic reaction. Drink more fluids; see if it helps.
