    Constant Mucus Hacking

    well before I finally go to a Doctor, thought I would post here.
    for well over 1 year (not sure when it started perhaps even 2 years) I have had a constant production of mucus.
    it never stops.

    I am NOT coughing.
    I quit smoking years ago.
    I have tried (all... over the counter meds);
    sinus pills,
    allergy pills,
    acid reflux...
    nothing works.

    the mucus produced is clear.
    at times my nose is plugged up but most times it is NOT.

    I have no pain and no other symptoms.

    I think around the same time I have been getting Cluster Headaches...
    never before...

    I mean I need some relief.
    it never stops...
    well when I get out of the house, then I don't think about it...
    so it is not as bad.
    it is when I am alone at home...
    if I don't fall asleep at the right time or right away I can forget about sleeping.
    all I do is hacking the mucus.
    and it is not a little.
    it is a good amount at every hacking.
    (sorry I know it is disgusting).
    not even hard to get it out.
    comes out very easily.

    in all this time it has not gotten worse or better.
    NO chest pains, nothing else...
    no heart burns...

    I am in my mid 50s...
    1 thing I should say.
    in the past when I quit smoking I would always put weight on.
    got as heavy as 170 pounds.
    haven't smoked in years and have not put an ounce.
    I am barely 140 pounds and 5'11.

    so would 1 know what this mucus is about.
    I can no longer take it...
