    HI Rachel,

    I used to get a feeling like mucus in my throat.  My doctor told me it was down to stress.

    You should maybe see your gp if you are worried but i think it can be smpytom of anxiety/stress. 

    Hope this helps x

    that is your body ridding itself of waste and nothing to do with anxiety.  Sinus problems are due to infections.

    I just recently got the same problem. I was on the bus and it felt like my nose was bleeding but it wasn't, it was just my nose running also soreness around the nostril area and constant blocked, stuffy nose.
