So, I've had a very, very odd type of issue for the past year. It all started after a cold (I think) I don't know for sure but here is basicaly what started happening and what keeps happening, every morning I wake up normally I just have some weird nasty taste in my throat... then about 2 hours after I wake up I notice a tickle in the bottom of my throat, very... very annoying! The tickle makes me want to cough and if I laugh or breath to fast the tickle makes me cough. Also, about 3 hours after I wake up I notice that I start having to clear my throat alot which is extremely annoying. If I do not clear my throat I will practically lose my voice (extreme hoarsness). Feels like I'm clearing mucus. I went to my ENT and he said my Vocal Cords were swollen which could be due to hard coughing when I had my cold originally which causes me to feel my body produce it's 1-2 quarts of mucus in the morning. At around 1-2 PM both coughs normaly go away. I will still sometimes clear my throat throughout the day a little. I don't know what the hell this is but it's so annoying it makes me want to scream in the morning.
