    Constant thick, mucousy, feeling in the back of my tongue and throat

    I have been having a constant feeling in my mouth lately that I don't know what it could be.

    To try to describe it is difficult at best, but here goes:
    It feels like my mouth is swollen inside. The back of my tongue and my throat feels like it 10x's its normal size but it's not, and it feels like a constant ball of mucous in the back of my throat, especially present when I swallow.

    I don't know what this possibly could be. I have been to the doctor and they have taken an MRI of sinus and it shows clear. I am taking two medications (Cabergoline and Phentermine) that cause dry mouth, which I do have, but they don't believe that it explains the throat things. And I have checked out fine for hydration - I am not dehydrating - I drink plenty of fluid.
    But when my mouth gets terribly dry - it is as if it almost completely swells closed and I cannot barely even talk - it's like cottonmouth x's 100.

    Any ideas - let me know.
