    how's it going? (rhetorical), if you really told me, it would take several hours, i know.

    anyway, in my early days of illness, this was an on going issue for me, as my allergies went over the top. I didn't ever have that problem prior to onset...
    so I discovered OSHA, liquid herbal extract from Ligustrum porteri ... whole root source, a Health food store item. it works very well for me; but we're all different. worth a try, as that throat clearing annoyance gets really old.

    I don't have it, but if you do, I would suspect some kind of allergy, whether it's to certain foods or environmental.

    haven't tried that particular brand, but if it's in VitaminShoppe it will be fine. They actually do an ok job of good quality control.

    i knew people who owned a little health food store; very knowledgeable. I used to be lucky that way. these days, not so much.

    Hope it helps you. It will only be a temporary fix, but it will certainly help some... that is, it's part of "maintenance", managing symptoms. Not the answer to the cause, that we all need.

    If you see an allergist make sure that he is knowledgeable on intolerances - many are not.

    I used to get coughing fits or very red flushed face after eating spicey foods. My nose used to actually drip and I had constant flem in my throat.

    My CFS physician gave me food intolerance tests - but intolerances can change. It seems I do best if I do not eat the same food more then once in 4 days, which I find too hard to do.

    Food has lots to do with my symptoms. Its very hard to figure it out.

    Bringing up an old one - I was wondering if anyone else has had chronic throat clearing as an issue?

    My father-in-law was suffering CFS like symptoms that seemed to be suddenly onset and became progressively worse over several months before he was diagnosed with idiopathic CKD. He is being treated for his kidney health but has suffered ongoing nausea and is constantly clearing his throat (every 10 minutesnit seems) and doctors don’t seem to think it is related. Any familiarity with this, or questions/tests that I might be able to suggest.
