What Could This Be?

Hey everyone. I posted something yesterday about a problem I've been having, and seems as though no one has been able to help me out. If you want to go back and read that post you can, but I've noticed two other symptoms over the past day or so that are kinda worrying to me as well. After having some issues with coughing/chest rumbling, I noticed yesterday when I went to pick a small tonsil stone out of the back of my throat (disgusting I know), that I apparently have lost my gag reflex. I know I've had one in the past, since I've inadvertently almost had to use it a few times while picking those things out. What could've happened to it, and is it something I should be worried about? I've also noticed that the back of my throat seems more dry than normal and I'm not producing as much mucus in my nose as usual either. I'm only in my early 20's so these seem like strange symptoms for someone my age. Any thoughts? Please help.
