Question does acid reflux cause lots of mucus

i have had acid reflux since march-since then i have been getting excessive mucus-i just have to keep clearing my nose, i have no cough and i can breathe properly.
so what do you think is causing this?
could it be acid reflux?

Re: does acid reflux cause lots of mucus

Yes, acid reflux can irritate the sinuses, which can cause excess mucus.

Oddly enough, sinus problems can cause postnasal drip, which can irritate the stomach and cause acid reflux, so it can be hard to figure out which problem came first!

It could be allergies, or it could be from the reflux. Have you tried nasal sprays or anything?

Well, getting the reflux under control can help the sinuses. Also, you may want to try rinsing your sinuses with a neti pot, in case there's some acid causing ongoing irritation up there.
