Constant Throat-clearing

Can be caused by multiple things: allergy-induced post-nasal drip (“post” means “behind”, not in the nose, i.e. down the back of your throat); stress that makes the muscles spasm; or more serious conditions such as swollen tonsils, swollen adenoids, asthma, acid reflux, or Tourette Syndrome. If it stays around and antihistamines and stress-reducing techniques such as yoga don’t clear it up, have a laryngologist take a look.
