    mucus in throat

    Does anyone else get thick mucus in their throat after drinking? I notice it the most after drinking something very cold. Do you know what is causing this?

    Re: mucus in throat

    I get it but not from drinking cold drinks. I have known seasonal allergies before I had my stomach problems. No matter, it's still annoying to have and lately it is giving me a sore throat. Do you get a sore throat from the mucos?

    I always have it as well and yes, VERY annoying. It's part of the joy of LPR!

    Re: mucus in throat

    Hi Chickie - yes, I have chronic headaches and I do believe the headaches and mucous, for me, have come together. I have seen several ENT's and while they see drainage in my sinuses, LPR is what they have diagnosed. Unfortunately PPI's and I don't agree, so I'm taking Pepcid (which I think may also contribute to headaches). It's such a vicious cycle.

    Yes to the mucus frenzy. Only taking anti-histamine daily and decongestants in conjunction with my Nexium help me. If I forget either my Nexium or Zyrtec. I feel like a volcano is about to pop my head of.. what an image.

    Sincerely,
    MG

    Do you also have headaches and pressur eon the face and all over your head? I have and it hurts pretty bad!! It feels like my heads to heavy to carry around

    Yes until my most recent sinus cavity roto-rootering. I got cleaned out, opened and drilled. What a wonderful long recover it was.. but it was worth it. I am finally headache free.

    This makes me think you might have allergy rhinittus or a sinus structural defect trapping fluid in your sinus cavities. An allergist and ENT might give you the best relief to this issue.

    Re: mucus in throat

    How does LPR make you have mucous in your throat all the time? Is it the body trying to protect itself from the acid? Also if I have mucous but no sore throat or cough does that mean I've got LPR or not?

    Re: mucus in throat

    I don't have a cough and I am currently being treated for LPR which is causing Sinusitis. I did read that the mucus is being overproduced to try and protect the throat from the acidic refluxing. Prilosec and Zantac have helped me tremendously...currently on week 4.

    Re: mucus in throat

    HELLO!
    im glad i found these boards i am finding that people have similar problems and symtoms that i have had for years and thought to be the only one to have. the mucus always in my throat is one. i have trouble swallowing. and it IS vert annoying. troubly eating. my stomach does get bloated after eating. i have chronic headaches. i think i might have LPR!!

    i will go see a doctor and tell them about this being as their reply to all my syymptoms usually were "anxiety" "stress" and "asthma"

    which brings me to this, i found this board searching for online answers to my breathing problems. there is a thread on here with people experiencing the same problems as i. my heart flutters and i feel like i have to yawn to get a full breath but its hard to do so.

    do people with LPR also have this problem? If so i think i may have found what has been causing me all these symptoms and knowing what it is would be such a great relief!

    hope to hear some replies on this, i am so happy right now! even if im having trouble breathing and the phlem in my thoat is so annoying i feel like chocking!

    Re: mucus in throat

    I also suffer from breathing problems - I do not have LPR - but I do have Acid Reflux/GERD with a suspected mild hiatal hernia. I believe that this conditions definitely contributes to my breathing difficulties.

    I have noticed lately that after eating I get mucous coming up into my throat. I wonder if mine is worsening - I sure hope not.

    There are many here that suffer from LPR - and it does cause them breathing problems as well.

    I hope you find some answers and relief very soon.
