mucus in lungs...is this allergies?
I've been suffering with chronic lung mucus and chronic throat clearing for many years and am DESPERATE to solve this riddle. I've considered (or will consider) silent reflux, candida, allergies and weak adrenals... I'm trying to find a doctor to work with me, as I'm about to "throw in the towel."
My main symptom is lung and throat phlegm which is worse in the morning, but can also happen at other times. Certain foods seem to make it worse, but sometimes I think eating ANYthing can contribute to it. The only time i can remember NOT having it was a long time ago when I was doing some juice fasting.
My father has had GERD for a long time and now I'm thinking that silent reflux could be a possibility, but I still think I have allergies because symptoms are worse if, for example I spend time in a musty basement (mold allergy?).
But I'd like to know if anyone else has lung phlegm/throat-clearing as a symptom of food or dust or mold allergies? Don't most people also get itchy eyes and runny nose etc (I don't).
Maybe I have reflux, candida AND allergies --ha! No wonder I've almost gone insane!
Thanks for reading this,
