Very often feel like I have something in my throat
I'm not sure if this is related to GERD and/or Post Nasal Drip, but I have very frequently been feeling like there is something in my throat. It doesn't feel like I have an object, like a piece of mushroom or carrot, in there, but more like I have a "glob," for lack of better words, of something in my throat area. As of right now, I'm not sure how to approach this - I usually try to drink tons of liquids, and to occasionally cough and try to clear my throat to see if whatever is there will dislodge; I also will take some Mucinex, in the case that it is mucus and that I can thin whatever is there if it is. As of right now, I can't find anything that will substantially fix my problem (i.e. I take this pill or do this action and my throat is quickly cleared up), other than trying to just wait it out.
Would appreciate some guidance on this issue.
P.S. On a slightly related note, I have instances (About 1-2 times a month) where I swallow a pill and it doesn't go all the way down, and stays in my throat for some hours until it dissolves on it's own.
