Thanks for your query.
Read your history carefully and understood your concerns.
The most probable reasons for your symptoms are:
- question is I have this irritated throat like wheezing in it down esophagus
> Due to the congestion, edema and excessive mucus production in response to the problems that you have, there is relative narrowing of the nasopharyngeal airway, that can give the irritated throat like wheezing.
Once the inflammation settles, the signs and symptoms too will be well recovered.
- and this horrible sour taste coming from mucus. had thrush before and post nasal drip but never this tight wheezing feeling and yukky taste. any ideas
> This can be due to the following reasons:
- The byproducts of some medicines get secreted into the saliva and mucus giving this taste.
- Anything inhaled or ingested can also get stuck up with mucus and get you the taste.
