Recently, I've noticed a grinding sensation sometimes when I talk, more specifically when it's in a deeper voice. I also have some drainage in my throat. Are they related?

Hello,

It’s my first priority to serve you.
Thanks for providing more information.

Well as you describe,post nasal drip(excessive mucus production in sinuses) can cause such phlegm at back of throat and it later results in such sensation.

You should do saline gargles and steam inhalation.

OTC Claritin can be tried.

Also avoid spicy,greasy,fried foods for a while.

Start a multivitamin containing B complex.

Vitamin C lozenges can be helpful.

Drink warm liquids,soup.

Elevate your head while sleeping.

Use a humidifier in your room.

Take OTC Prilosec.

If your symptoms'll persist then consult your doctor for further evaluation and management.

If you have any further query then we can discuss it thoroughly rather than give us poor/bad service.
