Re: mucous in throat can't swallow it away! and thirsty all the time.
Need to keep this thread going-so many of us have the same symptoms w/no answers. I started feeling the mucous/something stuck in throat about 6 yrs ago, no heartburn-at worse i feel like i can't beathe, but I know i can cuz I have forced myself to work out & it was ok. Been on/off Nexium, Protonix, etc, doesn't seem to make a diff, lost 50lbs, no diff, anxiety/stress plays no role, no link to foods. The only thing I can link it to is being tired. Taking a nap/going to bed alleviates feeling, I feel my best always in the am! Anyone else experience this? ENT was vague, said it was a combination of acid reflux/mucous, said go off meds, told me to stop clearing my throat. Had endoscopy last wk, gastrinologist said esphogaghus looked good/hiatal hernia was minor, made comment -you do not have to have acid reflux just because you have a hiatal hernia, said to go off meds-I am off right now. I am very curious about the thryoid link, any more info on it?
