dry throat

I was just out running, and my throat got so dry i started gagging. It wasn't a long run. Just 5 minutes to get my heart rate up today.

I don't know how to explain it...

It doesn't really seem like its my throat as a whole.

That thing that opens and closes when you breath and eat is what is bothering me.

it's dry on the part where the air goes in and out, and moist like it should be on the other side.

It's also sore. It kind of feels like a dry tar or something is there. My reflex is to cough and try to clear my throat, but it doesn't seem to do anything. when i run it really dries out and my gag reflex starts going.

This started happening to me 2 years ago when i quit smoking cigarettes.

I started smoking weed here and there around the time i quit smoking cigarettes. after i had been tobacco free for about 2 weeks, i got high. i got cotton mouth so bad that i couldn't stop my gag reflex. it wasn't my whole throat, just that one part in the throat. i just wanted to puke over and over and over. I used get high once a month. Every single time i get high, i want to puke up a storm because of that one dry spot. everything else is fine, just that 1 spot feels dry.

When i drink pop, i do get a burning sensation that goes up my throat, but i rarely drink pop(once every two or three weeks i'll have a can).
