@muffincat1 Welcome to Mayo Clinic Connect, a place to give and get support.
You symptom does sound crazy making.
Below I have linked a discussion you may find interesting, where members like @sarahbrhein @emsnoseiscured @glassshark @jea1 @pokee @jfvero have discussed a similar topic.
– Every day I cough up what looks like a scab with ugly mucous and blood https://connect.mayoclinic.org/discussion/every-day-i-cough-up-what-looks-like-a-scab-with-ugly/
When the doctors check your throat, do they see mucus? Have they mentioned allergies, anxiety, using a decongestant or over the counter allergy medication, etc.?
That sounds like post-nasal drip. I have something that seems similar to what you described.
This is @juleszs— I have a condition that has lasted about 1 and 1/2 years. I feel like I have phlegm in my throat but I can not bring it up. I have been scoped 4 times by an ENT doctor I have tried GERD meds. I have been to an allergy doctor. He tried asthma meds. Nothing helps.
This condition goes away when I sleep. As soon as I move around in the morning the congestion returns and stays with me all day—it feels like there is a lump in my throat.
Background —— In January, 2020 I had neck surgery—– C 4/5. Maybe the breathing tube nicked my throat. This condition started just after the surgery. However– I have had this condition twice before in the 27 years that I have lived in Florida. But it has gone away in due time. Now it is here to stay.
