    I have if I sleep more than 4 hours at a time or so... weird.
    It could be candida. there are protocols for this on the forum somewhere.
    Mine seems to be exacerbated by sugar and dairy products.

    I have year-round post nasal drip. There's always a wad of thick phlegm accumulated on my throat no matter how frequently I cough it up.

    Cold exposure instantaneously causes even more mucus production, even if it's something mild like placing my feet on a cool floor for a few seconds.

    If I eat sugar, or sugary fruit such as dates, then I get mucus at the back of my throat within 10 seconds. More sugar = more mucus. I'd like to know why it happens, and why so quickly. It didn't happen before ME.
