Every time I eat, and it doesn't even matter what it is, a piece of fruit or a slice of bread, I am forever clearing my throat for hours afterward. I even get thick mucus in my chest that I have to cough up almost as soon as I am finished eating, along with the parade of constant burping that follows. I do not smoke and have never smoked but I feel like a two pack a day smoker with this mucus I get. I also wake up with it too and have to gag it up. I'm only 26 years old.
I am trying to work on my diet and lose weight. I am eating a plant based diet and ordered The Acid Watcher Diet book but heard there are not many vegan recipes in it. This kind of worries me as I do not want to eat animal products but if it comes down to it I would do anything to be healed of GERD/LPR.
I have been skipping lunch at work because I answer the phone constantly and cannot get hoarse or clear my throat often. My voice gets so croaky from the mucus my boss has asked me if I am sick. I don't want to drive my co-workers crazy with my constant throat clearing. The phlegm is so deep I literally have to almost make animal noises to bring it up. This is really starting to bother me and I feel so disgusting and worried about the future. I can't keep skipping meals like this and it is affecting my work performance.
Has anyone else dealt with this? What helps? What foods can I bring to work that won't cause mucus in my throat?
