Lump/Mucus in Throat after Drinking


I'm a healthy active 21 year old but when I have a big night drinking beer (15 Drinks) I wake up with a lump/mucus like feeling in my throat.. It won't go away for the whole day and I find myself continuously swallowing to try and get rid of it but it always comes back. After a good sleep that night I'm fine.

It is worrying as I feel like I'm struggling to breath at some points.

Thank you!

Re: Lump/Mucus in Throat after Drinking

It sounds like it might be an allergy to beer. Talk to your doctor.

Re: Lump/Mucus in Throat after Drinking

I agree with Annie there may be some ingredient in the beer that your body can't tolerate. If it only happens with beer then try not drinking it for awhile and see if it goes away.

Good luck...JJ....

Re: Lump/Mucus in Throat after Drinking

With that quantity of beer you are probably suffering from Acid Reflux.
Do you have the same symptoms when you are not drinking. If not then cut down on the amount you drink.
