    Please help me. I don't know but I think it is also due to my nerves because it gets worst when I'm upset. I constantly clear my throat because it feels like there is something in there . I clear it and swallow and two seconds later the feeling is back. Then my throat starts hurting from all the clearing. I did have gerd a couple of years ago and took nexium. It seems I always have something that I can focus on to have make me depressed. Then I don't have to think about how terrible I feel. Also I will start coughing when I think alot about it and when I get upset or stressed I cough. What's up with this ???? Please help me . Barb

    I do this also. A side effect from alot of pain meds & antidepressants is dry mucous membranes (dry throat, sinuses). I drink alot of water, chew gum, or suck on life savors. I hope this might help you. Hugs, Tam
