Post Nasal Drip, NasoPharynx strange feeling

Hello ENT community.
I will try to describe my question the best I can, for I think its kinda tricky to explain.
Lately I have been feeling mucus behind my nose, as I can feel it sitting there, I would say it seems its sitting above the soft palate, and not in the nose itself. I have been using Rhino Duche daily for a while.
The thing that intrigues/ bothers me is when I am a while without eating or drink, or for instance, after my expresso, I start to feel a strange disconfort in the softpalate / roof, where the tongue hits the roof, its not pain, but it causes disconfort, even when speaking, and goes away when I drink anything, when I eat or if I´ll do a saline rinse.
Could you please help me shedding any light on this if you can?

Thanks in advance,
Best Regards,

Stop using the product you mention, and see if the problem goes away.

I started using rhino duche (saline rinse) for this issue.
How do you know it's mucous?  Are you blowing your nose a lot and having stuff come out when you do?  You seem to be self-diagnosing, but if it isn't a stuffed sinus then it's something else.
Also, it could be allergies, but if it goes away when you drink or eat, maybe it's just something that happened but you got mentally focused on it so much and when you distract yourself it goes away because it's not actually there.  I always think that kind of thing is a last resort way of looking at stuff, but it's always possible.
