Hey Guys,

I'm not sure if you read my previous post, but I have anxiety coupled with LPR reflux. I feel like I have excess mucous in my throat but do not feel like I have to clear my throat. Everything I read says that if mucous is in the throat, one would feel the need to keep clearing it. So my question is can this feeling just be anxiety related? Or is it possible that I have excess mucous back there? BTW, I have also been on prevacid since August.

Thanks so much =)

i think it depends on how much mucous is back there, if LPR is minor, prob don't need to clear..

You could always goto an ENT to confirm if you got extra mucous back there.

At any rate you should try to minimize the anxiety cause it will make LPR worse.
