I had the same symptoms ro47. I believe that the mucus is a way of protecting the throat. However, make sure you are not confusing acid w/mucus. Sometimes the acid reflux can feel like mucus, because it is not the burning type of acid. I made this mistake. Also, not only is it hard for me to swallow, but to chew as well. My jaw hurts after chewing too much.
