Hello I am a newbie here.Just after xmas i had a virus which was a tickly cough to the point of choking and generally feeling unwell. as I got better the tickle seemed to reduce and was replaced by loads of phlegm in throat.I thought the whole thing was getting better until now a month on the tickling is back aswell as the phlegm and its driving me mad. Sometimes its that bad it tickles right down my chest and in my ears.IT DOESN'T BOTHER ME MUCH AT NIGHT THOUGH.I have had gerd for years but the phlegm thing as been slight and occasional but the tickling has never been one of the symptoms.gerd or not? Please help.

I've been formally diagnosed with GERD but now know that I also suffer with LPR(Laryngopharyngeal reflux) in which the acid effects the throat, ears and nose. Excessive phlegm or mucous is a symptom of LPR. The symptoms that you described are the same things that I deal with. I've had the tickle in my throat, chest and ears from time to time. I take antihistamines for this and it tends to dry up some of the phlegm. I hope that you feel better soon!

Best Wishes,
