I've got thick mucus stuck to the back of my thoat that looks like it runs down my asophagus. I've actually got back there with a Q-Tip and pulled some off. It's really thick, dry, and sticky. Could this stuff be covering my entire asphagus? I've got this feeling that something is stuck in my thoat. Sometimes if feels really back and sometimes I can hardly feel it. Also, when I eat food it sometimes seems like it goes down real slow. What could be causing this mucus build up, where is it coming from and how can I get rid of it? Should I go see a ear, nose, and throat doctor?
Coconut oil stopped the excessive mucus in my throat. Nutiva brand at GNC 1 teaspoon per day. I don't have to clear my throat continuously anymore. It is solid at room temperature but it melts in your mouth. Pleasant coconut taste if you like coconut. Simple but I think works.
I have the same problem, especially in winter when I tend to easily become dehydrated. Trapper's salt water gargle will help remove the thick mucus. I wanted to suggest a mucus removal fast that really helps me when things get very bad. Its very simple to do, but you do need three days where you can be at home for the most comfortable results. Every morning drink two cups of prune juice. For the rest of the day alternate drinking pure water and apple juice. Do not eat any solid food at all. However, if you simply cannot fast, you can try eating a few raw apples chewed until they are liquid in your mouth. This fast helps push mucus out of the body. While you are doing this, it helps to keep a vaporizer going so the steam can help loosen mucus in the sinuses. This is a rigorous three days, but the results will last a long time. If you discover the foods that tend to produce the most mucus in your system, then you can either reduce or eliminate them altogether.
Remember that mucus is a natural and necessary part of our system, without it we would die. The thing is to produce only the mucus we need for proper digestion, breathing, lubrication, and elimination. The excess, caused from some factor that irritates the body and causes even more mucus to be produced, is what we must learn how to control.
Rick...For a quick fix...make you a broth, chicken or whatever...and add lots of
cayenne pepper.(As much as you can stand) If you can...even add hot peppers, cayenne or whatever you like...to your foods for at least today.
You can also hold your head over a sink of hot water....and those sinuses will open
up and it will drain on out.
Either of these will help immediately...but if you do both...you'll see a miracle
In the meantime...leave off all mucous causing foods, dairy, sugar, etc.
I'm In a rush...but try this...it should fix you right up.
No dairy. I don't eat any animal products except organic eggs. I don't eat anything that's processed (no coffee, sugar, soda, etc.). My diet hasn't always been like this. I fell off the healthy eating last November and didn't pull it together until August. I'm pretty sure I have Candida and probably leaky gut. I recently thought I had the Candida under control but now I'm pretty sure I went back to eating fruit too soon.
i have has mucus in my throat for about a good month. I had some kinestheology muscle testing done, and not only did a chiropractor fix my hiatial hernia i didnt know i had, but she told me i had some leaky gut to heal.
she then informed me that with leaky gut, your body gets minor food allergies that it never had before leaky gut, since things are leaking out of where they are supposed to, and its common for mucus to line the digestive tract as the systems trying to protect itself. which, of course, includes the throat
Coconut oil stopped the excessive mucus in my throat. Nutiva brand at GNC 1 teaspoon per day. It is solid at room temperature but it melts in your mouth. It tastes like coconut. I don't have to clear my throat continuously anymore. Simple but it worked for me.
I have the same thing. This started happening maybe a week ago. It seems to get progressively worse as night approaches. That is due to a panic attack. I have recently seen a ENT and he is going to perform a swallow study and a procedure where they numb your nose and throat and out a camera down it to see what is going on. They have given me every antihistamine but that drys me out. It is thick and needs 2 get thin so I can get it out. Try Musinex but not the DM. Just straight Musinex.Let me know if u went 2 the dr and found anything out
I have found that coconut oil stopped the excessive mucus in my throat. Nutiva brand at GNC or online. I don't have to clear my throat continuously anymore. It's been a miracle for me. It's a solid at room temperature but it melts in your mouth 1 teaspoon per day. It gives you energy also. You won't find your answer at the doctors office I tried for many years I've been to dozens of ENT's. I've had my throat scoped dozens of times. I've tried nose sprays, mucinex,reflux meds. Coconut oil 1 teaspoon per day stopped it.
I've had the swallow test done. They didn't find a problem. I've also had my throat scoped dozens of times and I've been to dozensof ENT's. I've taken antibiotics,reflux meds and nose sprays with steroids in it.
Nothing helped me until I started on coconut oil for memory and it stopped the excessive mucus in my throat. I have looked for a solution to this problem since I was 22 years old. I'm now 68. 45 years later I have found a solution to the problem! I literally want to shout it from the rooftops! I am 90% better. 1 teaspoon per day. Nutiva brand at GNC $ 15.00 for a months supply. I don't think you'll find the help you seek at a doctor's office. I never did. Just to be able to talk without clearing my throat constantly is such a blessing .
I've used a neti pot with huge success. Also try gargling ( with your head tilted all the way back ) with a solution of raw organic apple cider vingegar several times until what you spit out is without mucus in it.
hi, I noticed this message is 7 years old but I am suffering same thing since last 2 or 3 years, I have also gerd, sinus.doctors couldn't do anything.what happened to you did you get cure?I hope you did. Are you alive? Please let me know?
I know this message is 7 years old but I wanna know what happened to you ?are you still alive ? Did you get cure?please tell me because I am suffering from same condition since 2 or 3 years I have GERD and sinus prb too .it is very hard to live with this condition. Please help me !!
I just joined curezone & saw your question. I have the same problem, used the q-tip but I was afraid I'd get it stuck in my throat. I bought long tweezers which helped.I was getting chronic sinus infections. So, every year my ENT did surgery to clean out my sinuses. Dr also gave me a Neilmed sinus rinse to use with warm water & salt 2x a day. Yes it did help but I get sick on salt. That rinse is the only thing that helped. I didn't like it, I get sick on salt. As far as being dehydrated I was told to stop drinking so much water. I drink almost a gallon of water everyday. I didn't like it. I hope this helps.
I know this thread started a long time ago, but I though I'd give it a try anyway. I have much the same problem and have for a number of years. I've had two sinus surgeries and the second one was a complete failure - the surgeon removed all of my turbinates leaving my sinuses too open and they dry totally out - but at least I don't get sinus infections nearly as often as I used to, just sniffle all the time. This was about 14 years ago. My problem got MUCH worse after a year long bout with sinus infections and bronchitis last year and never got much better once I kicked those. Now when I blow my nose not much comes out, but I have to sniff hard, then swallow to get the thick mucus to go down, which is immediately replaced by more. It's embarrassing because I work with the public so I know they notice. It's worse when I'm lying down. I've tried mucines, but it only helps a little. Makes it a little thinner, but there's just as much. My current ENT can't figure out why this is going on. Anyone have any suggestions for things I can do to reduce this, especially at work?
Coconut oil stopped mine.1 teaspoon per day Nutiva brand at GNC $15.00 for a months supply solid at room temperature but it melts in your mouth. Pleasant coconut taste if you like coconut. I started taking coconut oil for memory and it stopped mucus in my throat. It took me 45 years to find help with this. I'm 90% better. I don't have to clear my throat continuously. Such relief!
how did you end up getting rid of that?? I have the same problem and I was just sick recently with bronchitis..don't know if that had anything to do with it. but it just seems like there is something stick in my throat and like you said it goes slowly down when I eat but then back up again. I know this was almost 10 years ago but I'm desperate. Thanks!
