Dear Marsh

This is difficult to call, but the most likely cause is a post nasal drip from the sino-nasal cavities. Your doctor should exclude a sinus infection, or otherwise an allergy. If this is not the case, the cause should be looked for somewhere else. A possible reflux problem then needs to be excluded.
I suggest you seek medical attention, as you require a full examination.
