Question about Mono

I had mono about 6 yrs ago and the doctor warned me about having a constant drain in my throat. Its gotten so bad recently that I'm getting sick because its gagging me so bad. Has anyone had or knows anyone with experince with this? Any advice? I haven't had a clear throat in yrs! I have made a docs appointment but its in a few weeks and they'll probably send me somewhere else.

  • I did not have this issue when I had mono. Try eliminating dairy; that may help dry up the mucus.

  • Never had mono but I have constant pnd (post-nasal drip) that's often thick. I've found allergy meds help - claritin every night plus tavist-d every morning. I also use Halls mentho lyptus cough drops to help thin it when it's bad so I don't gag on it.
