    I so wish that articles like these would add “throat clearing” to “coughing” as a symptom of heart disease! Had I googled “coughing” instead of “constant throat clearing,” my husband might still be alive today. However, what my husband was doing in the months leading up to his “widow maker” heart attack did NOT sound like “coughing.” It was the “ahem ahem ahem” of throat clearing. Even the doctor dismissed it as kind of a tic or habit, since my husband was healthy and athletic . . . and I, reassured that my husband’s doctor did not seemed concerned, actually became annoyed at the sound. Googling “throat clearing” only brings up things like post nasal drip — and, sadly, not the serious situation of blood leaking back into the lungs, which is what was happening to my husband. He suffered a fatal heart attack while on a charity bike ride. Please — articles on “throat clearing” need to add “heart disease” as a possible cause and articles on heart disease need to list the symptom of concern as “coughing/throat clearing,” rather than just “coughing” so people can become aware.

    1. I am 76 and have had sinus problems for years, i clear my throat and cough all the time, so idk if one can say that indicates heart problems. thank you

  2. This article is very helpful. I’m constantly clearing my throat. My doctors associates the throat clearing to post nasal drip. The lymph nodes in my throat are always enlarged. I had a my enlarged tonsils removed hoping it would stop the throat clearing but it didn’t. Nothing seems to help with the constant clearing of my throat. I’m extremely concerned about it because I have a mild heart condition and a family history of heart attack and throat cancer. my doctors can’t explain why I have excess fluid around my heart.
