I am constantly clearing my throat and I have to

Patient : I am constantly clearing my throat and I have to cough up flem often, especially in the morning. I also have to clear my ears frequently throughout the day. My wife says I snore at night. I don't feel like I am breathing efficiently through my nose--it feels like I have to inhale harder to get a good breath (not short of breath though). If I am normally breathing through my nose, I feel like my left nostril is stuffed up compared to my right.I have felt this way for about a year now. What could this be?
