Persistent dry cough with thick mucus

A hoarse voice, dry cough that does not go away and mucus in the throat may be symptoms of hiatal hernia.

A persistant dry cough that doesn’t go away can feel hopeless and annoying; perhaps you are also hoarse or have lost your voice. This can be especially troublesome when you need to talk on the phone, to a crowd of people or with friends.

In the beginning you probably assumed that the problem would disappear by itself, then when it didn’t, you probably tried various housewife’s tips, tricks and throat tablets. Perhaps you have also seen a doctor, to rule out allergy or illness.

Persistent dry cough

A croaking and hoarse voice in combination with a dry cough that does not go away and mucus that is stuck in the throat may all be symptoms of hiatal hernia, a weakened diaphragm.

It can also be called gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) which means that acid from the stomach leaks up into the oesophagus, airways and mouth.

This can cause different varying strength symptoms. Often you get heartburn or acid reflux. Mucus in the throat is the body’s defence mechanism to protect the mucous membranes against the acidic gastric juices.

When you lie down, it is common, with a hiatus hernia, that gastric juices leak into the oesophagus, flow into the airways and irritate your vocal cords. This then gives you a dry cough, a harsh voice and makes you want to clear your throat to remove the protective mucus on the vocal cords.

It is not uncommon for those suffering from persistant cough and thick mucus to be sent from pillar to post within the healthcare system, because the overall picture of the symptoms can point to asthma, allergies or other lifestyle influences.

In addition, any sleeping difficulties because of the dry cough make you tired during the day and not fully refreshed. Many people think they will have to live with mucus and a dry cough the rest of their lives, but that doesn’t have to be the case.
