HELLO,
WELCOME TO HCM
IF YOU FEEL LIKE YOU HAVE FLUID IN THE BACK OF YOUR THROAT,IT COULD BE A SIGN SUGGESTIVE OF POST NASAL DRIPS. BUT THE QUESTION IS HAVE YOU BEEN HAVING NASAL DISCHARGE,ALLERGIC ATTACKS,SINUS PROBLEMS,ETC CAUSE THESE ARE OTHER SYMPTOMS THAT COULD CAUSE IT.
INCREASE THIN FLUID SECRETIONS BY YOUR NASAL MUCOSA COULD ALSO BE CAUSED BY ALLERGIES AS I HAVE MENTIONED EARLIER,COLD TEMPERATURES,FOODS/SPICE,PREGNANCY,DRUGS EG: BIRTH CONTROL PILLS AND BLOOD PRESSURE MEDICATIONS, STRUCTURAL ABNORMALITIES.
I SUGGEST YOU SEE AN ENT DOCTOR TO GET THOROUGHLY EVALUATED.
THANKS. HOPE THIS HELPS
