Have you seen an allergist? If not, I would.

Yes they can help if the mucus drainage is caused by allergies. Have you seen a primary care physician first? I'd start there and then go to an allergy MD if your primary care physician can't help.

I've been allergy-tested twice; nothing! Yet I have constant post-nasal drip and thick mucous clogging my sinuses and coating my throat; I'm constantly clearing away that frog, which I'm sure people must think is a nervous tick or something! OTC decongestants (the kind you have to ask the pharmacist for, show your license, etc.) seem to work for a few hours, but it's a pretty much constant thing. I blame the climate and just pray that it resolves when I move.

Nikos,

FWIW when I first developed similar symptoms at age 70 ( hoarse voice, excess mucus in the throat (not sinus phlegm), and some trouble swallowing) it was diagnosed as "Silent Reflux" ( or LPR, Laryngopharyngeal Reflux (Silent Reflux): Causes, Treatment, Diet, and More )

Talk to your Primary doc about getting either a laryngoscopic exam, or a "barium swallow" exam.
