A thick white mucus deep in my throat causes acid reflux that gives me nausea. To get out of my throat, I have to cough and gag hard just short of vomiting. Sometimes these episodes last 10 to 15 minutes.

I am 67 years old. I have had post nasal drip all my life. It wasn't until last Thanksgiving of 2014, after returning from a Disney World vacation, that I experienced a coughing and gagging situation to diminish nausea.

While in Disney World I had to take my daughter to a special care unit because of a sinus infection. She has had many sinus infections before and I never got a sinus infection from her. I am concerned as to whether I caught a bug from the special care unit that has cause my condition. I have had this illness for 7 months. Currently, I am working with a pulmonary specialist. Because of a blood test she has ruled out allergies.

I have an appointment with a gastrointestinal specialist on June 16th to get an other expert opinion.

Do you of any one who has been to Disney world and has an illness like mine?

Regardless of Disney World do you of anyone who has an condition like me?

Finally, when I retire to sleep at night, I hear a lot of digestive sounds from my stomach. Sometimes I hear these sounds during the day.

  • Does it feel like you have something stuck in your throat? You didn't say if you ever coughed anything up. If you did not check out GERD

  • Think it is Acid Reflux - need to take Omeprazol to reduce acid in your stomach as the phlegm is probably the acid reaching high up in your throat- may have an hiatus hernia- which can cause the acid to your throat area
