You are not alone. I too have the throat thing and continuously pull them out of my one nostril.
It plays such havoc on us emotionally but we should be grateful that we are aware of our ailment and currently fighting it.
So many people must live out their lives without ever knowing.....accepting their doctors lame diagnosis.
I was told my coughing up mucous a gazillion times a day was bronchitis and given sprays and antibiotics. I was told my sinus troubles were allergies and given sprays and pills.
I feel for the people that accept what their doctor says thus not living but just existing. :(
