In the last few months, my husband has started snorting and has no control over it. He has no cold symptoms. He does say that sometimes it does feel like there is something at the back of his throat. He did some doctoring with it a few weeks ago but they found nothing. They put him on some meds which I'm not sure what right off hand and he is suppose to go back next week. But there is no change and he is still snorting. Anyone ever experience this or know what might be causing it?

Hello and welcome to ehealth forum.

Based on your history, its most likely to be due to postnasal drip associated with rhino sinusitis and/ or upper respiratory tract infection. Mucolytics, decongestants and antibiotics like gemifloxacin can be advised , in consultation with your doctor, if the secretions are thick and difficult to expectorate or leading to persistent headache.

I hope this helps and wish you good luck
