I HAVE HAD EXCESSIVE CLEARING OF SPUTUM IN THE BACK OF MY THROAT AND SPITTING UP 24/7 SINCE DECEMBER 26, 2012 AT 10:00 A.M. I KEEP SPITTING UP PHLEGM ALL DAY AND NIGHT LONG THAT'S WHITE, THICK, FOAMY, FROTHY AND STICKY. SOMETIMES IT LOOKS LIKE WHITE ELMER'S GLUE WITH BUBBLES. IT SEEMS TO GET WORSE AT NIGHT WHEN I LAY DOWN. EVERY TIME I EAT OR DRINK ANYTHING IT COMES RIGHT BACK UP IN A WAD OF SPIT THE COLOR OF WHAT I JUST ATE OR DRANK. I CAN'T EVEN DRINK WATER. I FEEL LIKE SOMETHING IS CAUGHT IN MY THROAT. LIKE A KNOT. IT WON'T COME OUT. I KEEP HACKING UP TO GET IT OUT SAND NOTHING COMES OUT. I REALLY HAVE TO TRY AND FORCE IT HARD TO COME OUT BUT NOTHING DOES. IT'S HARD TO SWALLOW ANY TYPE OF FOOD OR DRINKS. IT HITS A CERTAIN SPOT IN MY THROAT AND IT FEELS LIKE HYDROGEN PEROXIDE DOES WHEN IT IS APPLIED TO A SOAR SPOT...IT BUBBLES. IT'S HARD TO TAKE MY PILLS AT NIGHT BECAUSE MY TONGUE MELTS THEM BEFORE I HAVE A CHANCE TO SWALLOW THEM. WHEN I HAVE TO BELCH LIQUID COMES UP AT TIMES WITH BURNING. IT FEELS AS IF MY THROAT IS SWOLLEN. IT FEELS AS IF I AM DROWNING BECAUSE OF THE EXCESS SPUTUM IN MY THROAT. IT FEELS LIKE I AM CHOKING WHEN I TRY TO SWALLOW THE SPUTUM SO I HAVE TO TRY AND COUGH IT UP AND SPIT IT OUT. I HAVE HAD TO WATCH AND CUT BACK ON WHAT I EAT BECAUSE IT IS TOO ******n MY THROAT. I CAN'T EAT ICE CREAM, MUSTARD, FRIED FOODS, SPICY FOODS, HOT SAUCE, TOMATO PRODUCTS,CHOCOLATE, TEA, COFFEE AND CARBONATED BEVERAGES. I HAVE BEEN TO 3 E.N.T. DOCTORS, 1 GASTROENTEROLOGY, 1 GERD DOCTOR, AND THEY CAN'T DIAGNOSE THE PROBLEM. I HAVE HAD 3 BARIUM SWALLOW TESTS, PH MANOMETRY TEST, AND HAVE TRIED A LOT OF DIFFERENT MEDICATIONS AND NOTHING HAS HELPED. HAS ANYONE HAD THIS TYPE OF PROBLEM LIKE I DO? WHAT TYPE OF DOCTOR SHOULD I SEE TO GET AN ACCURATE DIAGNOSIS?
WHAT DID THE DOCTOR DO TO TREAT THIS CONDITION AND SYMPTOMS? PLEASE HELP ME. I NEED TO GET HELP NOW. ANY SUGGESTIONS WOULD BE MOST APPRECIATED.
