Throat Tickle and Urge to Throat Clear: Throat Clearing is a Form of Cough

Both Chronic Cough and Constant Throat Clearing are symptoms of underlying medical condition(s), and often the only symptom present. People who experience Chronic Throat Clearing, like Persistent Cough, report an urge to get rid of a feeling like there’s something stuck in the back of their throat. But when they give-into the urge and throat clear or cough, rarely is there anything there. And, both share similar anatomical, personal and professional consequences including irritated vocal cords, embarrassment for the throat clearer, and annoyance for the people hearing this repetitive and grating sound.

We all clear our throats from time-to-time to get rid of a feeling of fullness, but like cough, it irritates the vocal cords and perpetuates the cycle. Irritated vocal cords cause us to notice otherwise routine and unnoticeable functions such as swallowing the mucous our bodies naturally make daily. The more we notice this sensation, the more we have an urge to throat clear or cough, and the more we do, the more we have to.

Chronic Throat Clearing, like Chronic Cough, often begins with an upper respiratory infection, allergies, acid or non-acid reflux, and/or medication. But the habit of throat clearing or coughing continues long after the initial event. Treatment of Chronic Throat Clearing, like Persistent Cough, may include behavioral and voice therapy components to break the cycle.
