ENT Specialist 's  Response
Hi welcome to health care magic forum,

Uncomfortable in throat is called foreign body sensation of throat.

This usually occurs in acute reflux pharyngitis.

Reflux pharyngitis may be due to extra esopharyngeal reflux disease .

In my opinion you can start an antireflux medication like pantoprazole 40 mg once daily for 2 to 3 days.

Avoid spicy food and take plenty of sips of water.

But if no relief than see an ENT specialist for indirect laryngoscopic examination .

You can undergo thyroid function test and upper GI Endoscopy to exclude any pathological lesion.

This can happen with postnasal drip that is phlegm (mucus) coming from nose and sinuses. Once you wake up from sleep the sinuses start draining. That is why it slowly increases.
In the absence of other symptoms this can happen due to allergy in nose and sinuses.
If this symptom is bothering you then the following medications are likely to help:
Steroid nasal spray. If this alone does not help antihistamines may be required.
You may consult an ENT specialist to ascertain what exactly is your problem and further treatment of it
Wish you good health.
