Every couple of months I've been getting a sore throat and tickling feeling. In the morning I wake up to a raw throat, very dry and a feeling as if something really "gooey" is at the back of my throat. Its taste bad too, almost bitter. Any ideas as to what this sounds like. I have a stuffy nose right now as wel and cough. I don't know if thats due to a cold or its related. I was thinking some kind of sinus/allergy or acid reflux. Does anyone have any other ideas or confirmations. Thank you very much. PS It does come and go...??
Sounds like post nasal drip. Try a netty pot and something like Xclear(saline nasal spray). I am suffering with that right now. I have had a sore throat for 10 days and the nasal drip is making the throat worse. I cannot take antibiotics so I am just treating this naturally. Good Luck
