Hi Bee
You may have a post nasal drip or even a bit of acid reflux. Ask your GP to have a look - you may need to use something like Gaviscon to prevent acid from pushing up into the esophagus or you may need to get treatment for a chronic post nasal drip. (He needs to have a look in your nose and throat to see if there are signs of any of these?)
