The morning feeling of “spongy or gurgly” that clears immediately is most likely to be just a nighttime collection of normal secretions or post-nasal drip.  If you smoke cigarettes it could be irritation from the smoke.

The cough you have now had for six days may or may not be related to the longtime “gurgle”.  If it continues for more than 6-12 weeks or the morning “gurgle” worsens during that period, you should discuss these events with your doctor.

Good luck

the secretions can cause the cough. i've had allergies for years and the mucous tends to collect overnight in my lungs so i must do some coughing to clear it in the mornings...
