I’m a 27 female, it’s been weeks since I started having these symptoms, which really freaked me out. I even shaked/trembled when I first felt it.
I started to feel mucus/phlegm stuck in between my back nose and back throat, or the very back of my palate. It cannot be swallowed down, also hard to be hacked out. Sometimes I feel it dripping down from my nose and makes me feel like choking. It feels more like very, very thick and sticky saliva, it’s not green or yellow, it’s white clear coloured. Sometimes with a tickle feeling in my throat makes me feel like coughing(but I don’t actually cough and nothing can be coughed out). It feels horrible when I swallow saliva or drinking water, feels like the mucus has been dragged but wouldn’t go down(so hard to describe). My eating is affected too because I feel the mucus dripping down sometimes while I’m eating and makes it hard to swallow food, which resulted in my appetite went completely away. Sometimes when I breath I can feel the mucus thing moving...so much discomfort! My throat feels really really tight and I have constant swallowing problem now...which makes my throat even drier.
I went for an ENT endoscopy and nothing was found. Planning on taking an upper endoscopy as well.
I have heard of Globus Sensation but it doesn’t look that typical(a lump belows the Adam’s apple). Mine is more upper and feels more glue-like.
By the way, my nasal passage is always very dry, I don’t have runny nose/sneezing, so I guess this post nasal drip sensation is not caused by excessive secretions from my nose. I never had heartburn but I do belch and burp while eating or drinking. And I also started to have some chest pain(not sure if it’s the muscle or the bone) after those symptoms started.
My life is in darkness now...anyone??? Please help...is it caused by increased sensitivity of my throat due to anxiety? Or it could be caused by LPR?
