    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    I feel like I have to always clear my throat and have what feels like thick mucus....it feels like it travels to my lungs and makes me cough. I actually do cough first thing in the morning..Also feels like mucus behind my nose. Someone thought this could be gerd. I do not have heartburn at all. Anyone else experience this?

    It's possible it could a result of acid, but in some, the same symptoms can result from food sensitivity to things like dairy even in small amounts. You might want to consider taking dairy out of your diet and see what happens.

    But if you think the issue is due to acid reflux, please check with your doc and get some testing done.
