I have been having excessive mucus for the past four months now. I can feel it in my throat constantly. No matter how much I get up, it's always there. I have also been diagnosed with vocal cord dysfunction, and the doctors tell me that mucus is irrritating my vocal cords further. They gave me a sinus rinse to do twice a day, but that doesn't seem to be helping much. It helps get the snot out of my nose, but the mucus always remains in my throat. I eat healthy. I actually tried cutting out all dairy products and that maybe helped a tiny bit, but not much. Ahhhhhhh. This is so annoying. What could be causing this, and what can I do that will get rid of the excess?
