Greasy feeling in throat. Gets wheezy with phlegm. Have anxiety. Next step?

Hi, my friend has a problem with a greasy feeling in his throat . He said he s had this problem for several years. It doesn t matter what he eats or drink, its always there. He also suffers with phlem and gets wheezy. I was just wondering if you knew what it could be? He has told his doctor about it but they just dismiss it. Also, he has just been diagnosed by the hospital as suffering from severe anxiety . Thanks

HI I have gone through your mail that indicates your friend is having stuffyness in his throat for about last one year,my suggestion is that he should be examied thorougly for his nose and throat to findout any obstructive condition of nose as deviated nasal septum,nasal polyps,chronic sinusitis,any mass in nasopharynx (area behind the soft palate) because these conditions leads to mouth breathing thus producing greesy feeling in throat,he is also adviced to go for culture and sensitivity of throat swab to ruleout any infection.Thanks
