First off, I understand that it is the changing of the seasons and I recognize my normal snottiness from that. I am on allergy medications due to the typical severity of my symptoms but this is about this consistent mucus build up at the back of my throat. Ever since my surgery in January 2021 I have noticed that it feels like thick gunk at the back of my throat when I swallow. It can hinder eating because it makes me feel a bit nauseous and it makes me even less hungry. When I clear my throat I feel it move a bit but it never truly goes away. Even when my allergy meds are full blast and everything is dried out that mucus is still sitting at the back of my throat. I have told my surgeon about it and she just told me to gargle saltwater...which does not help. She also said to take Benadryl, which does not help. Has anyone else had this problem? How do you get past it? What even is it? It's making it really difficult for me to eat some days. I drink more than enough Water and follow all of my dietary guidelines but it's still there. I use a nasal rinse everyday as well. I've tried coughing it up, spitting, hacking...everything. It's led to so much frothing! I am miserable and would appreciate any advice since my doctors are dominantly just shrugging their shoulders and telling me to deal with it.

I have it as well, even in the middle of the night I keep trying to bring it up. Sometimes I am able to get it up, but it sounds disgusting while I am trying to do it, but whether some comes up or not some always remains. If I sneeze I have to really make sure nose and mouth totally covered as some comes out then.

Yeah sneezes are pretty juicy lol but offer some relief for a little while
