Our expert says:
An abnormal taste or feeling at the back of the throat can be caused by a post nasal drip or acid reflux from the stomach. If you look in the mirror at the back of the throat and it is red/swollen or you can see phlegm you may have to see your GP to get treatment for this. You could also try gargling with salty water.
