Since when are you having this problem
Any other complaint
Customer: replied 7 years ago.

Mostly in the past 6 months. I thought it was because I am alone and not using my voice as much but that does not explain being unable to clear the mucus from my throat. Does not hurt is just very irritating.

Some of the important causes could be laryngitis, post nasal drip, allergy, post nasal drip etc. You need to be examined by an ENT specialist to find the cause and proper treatment should be started.
