Thanks a lot for your input. I am sorry to hear about your problem. I am going to address your primary concern but later you can ask anything you want. This is just silent acid reflux from your stomach and/or allergy. In silent reflux, there is no actual heartburn but the amount of acid from the stomach causes the throat to become inflamed and make more mucus and that feels like a tickle. I would suggest that you must try over the counter available capsule omeprazole 20 mg twice daily for 2 weeks and tablet Claritin once daily for 7 days and you will start feeling better. If symptoms persist, see your doctor get X rays of the chest but I reassure you that there is nothing serious like cancer-related to this because in that case the symptoms are severe and are present 24/7. This is not coronavirus either. I wish you good luck and that you get well soon. My goal is to provide you with excellent service – if you feel you have received anything less, please reply back as I am happy to address follow-up questions. Kindly rate me when you are done. You can come back here to ask anything even after you have rated the answer. I will be glad to help you always. A 5-star rating is requested and will be appreciated. Regards

I am just worried that it might be tuberculosis as my uncle had it or you think that symptoms are not same?

In tuberculosis there is a severe cough that is present all day, there should be weight loss, loss of appetite, and sometimes blood in the phlegm. There is evening fever as well. So please relax, that's not your case. I reassure you. My best wishes and prayers will be following you for good health.
