    Mucus Problem

    I'm fairly new to the paleo diet (about 8 months in). I've definitely gotten great results so far.
    But I started to recently suffer from from this mucus problem where I have to clear my throat incessantly. At first I thought it was just a bad habit, but now I'm actually spitting constantly with a congested throat.
    There are a number of things which I suspect to be the cause but I really would like your opinions!
    I eat a lot of eggs daily... I mean like at least 5 a day. Also I do drink kefir.

    A lot of people will tell you that 5 eggs a day is not a lot. Of course, if you have an allergy, it doesn't matter how many you eat.

    Do you eat dairy? That is a common culprit.

    You could try cutting out common allergens, like dairy, eggs, and FODMAPs (though that's not an allergy) for a few weeks to a month to see if symptoms improve.

    Is it better or worse on seemingly random days? Any correlation with the weather/your environment? I've found my congestion is worse on overcast days, but I also have a mold allergy.
