Does anyone else have excessive mucus in the throat? A bunch comes out in the mornings and a little throughout the day. I’ve had this for 8 years now and no answers. I’m trying to limit gluten and think that may be helping. I eat eggs a lot so maybe it’s that too. If anyone has found a solution please lmk

    I notice it more if I am dehydrated when I go to bed. I think maybethe mucus is a response to reflux during sleep, and drinking a small glass of water always reduces my morning reflux, but either way the glass of water seems to lessen the amount of mucus in the morning for me

      I know that i’m not dehydrated for sure…I thought that acid reflux can cause this but i’ve never met anyone else who has this problem bc of that

        huh, I get severely dehydrated due to other conditions so maybe I'm just ~special~ lol🥲 Without knowing your background/lifestyle, it might be hard to know what the cause is, but I hope you find a solution soon!
