Resolved Question:

I have a white sticky mucus in the back of my throat in the morning and it constantly feels like I have a plug in my throat day and night that I am constantly trying to swallow, a nurse told me that it sounds like a sinus infection....This has been going on for a little over a month. Is the nurse right?

Hi,

Sticky mucus at the back of throat can be due to Post nasal drip . It can be caused by rhinitis, sinusitis, or acid reflux. It can also be caused by allergies .
So sinusitis can be one of the cause of sticky mucus at the back of throat .
You may consult an ENT doctor for further evaluation .
Hope this helps
