Well, that's what I had, gobs of mucus...where is your's coming from? Mine was definitely dripping from my nasal area, and down into my throat. Tons of it, and it was constant and clear, so no infection per se.
All of this went on for about 2 months, and then the husband got sick with the flu for a week, and I finally came down with the flu. That resolved the earlier 2 months of mucus production.
A girlfriend of mine believes that all the healthy things we do staves off the flu, etc, and either we don't get sick, or we get really, really sick. No in between. After a number of years of never getting sick, and when I do it hits hard after a long build up of being only slightly ill, I almost have to agree with her. The long build up will either go away and resolve, or I end up deathly ill. Nothing that you can consider a normal cold, nor a normal flu for a long time now.
There is a ton of croupy crap out there right now. But if you are living in a moldly enviornment, then for sure I'd say this could be affecting you. And oddly, my muscusy thing started right after we turned on the heater for the season....hmmmm.
