    Throat rattles when I breathe in & out - no mucus

    Every time in about a few hours later when I'm in bed, I can feel my Larynx or Trachea (throat) rattles when I breathe in & out. It gets worse when I laid my head on both sides and it feels better when I elevate my head (higher than my chest). I don't have a sinus infection. When I control cough to collect mucus out of my throat nothing came out. I dry-coughed all the time at night.

    Are allergies possible? Carpet? Pet? I live in Salt Lake City, UT with a very dry air outside (I'm from Texas and did not get this before).

    Im trying to pinpoint what is causing this.

    Thanks!

    Possible, as is reflux. I suggest you see an ENT who can have a look in there and see what is going on.

    Try an OTC acid reducer such as Zantac or PPI such as Nexium. If you do have reflux and you feel it in your throat, you would have inflammation there from the stomach acid.

    But, do get checked. I lost much of my voice for 4 months...thought I had laryngitis again, which I did a year previous. I saw the same ENT, got checked and nope....reflux. I used Zantac for a few months, and it helped.

    Keep us updated.

    If it hasn't cleared up by antacids I'm wondering if you should have a test to check for Hiatal Hernia. My boyfriend who is 44 has one which does cause his heartburn in which he takes daily medication. Also how about a Barium Swallow which may pick up something a camera doesn't if you an issue in your esophagus but makes sure its not just a speech swallow which may not check your entire esophagus. Good Luck
