    Throat Clearing/Coughing Issue

    Over the last month I’ve been been having an issue with my throat where it feels like I cannot clear my throat properly. I don’t necessarily have a consistent cough. I don’t have a constant hacking cough and it doesn’t feel like I have a bunch of phlegm in my throat. It’s just that when I have a tickle in my throat or if I need to cough for some reason it isn’t working. It feels like when I cough I can’t dig in and clear my throat. The cough just seems weak and doesn’t work. It’s hard to describe but it’s like the cough just pushes air out of my throat rather than dig in and clear it.

    I do have chronic sinusitis and someone said this could be dry cough. Is that what it sounds like? Im a little nervous about it and I can’t get in to see my doctor for 3-4 weeks. Otherwise I’m a pretty healthy 36 year old male. I am type 2 diabetic but it doesn’t seem like a symptom of that. I also have hay fever allergies. Is it possibly linked to that? I want to stress that I don’t have a chronic cough. It’s just that when I need to couch or clear my throat it’s working a lot of the time.
