... still no help. Does anybody have any ideas? Mucinex does NOTHING!

Are you drinking planty of water? Staying well hydrated will help to thin the secretions-this can go a long way in helping you. Be sure to stay away from milk/dairy products as they make mucous thicker. You might see a pulmonologist to be sure that you dont have any kind of allergies or asthma. Sometimes people with chronic cough and thick mucous actually have asthma but dont necessarily have any wheezing at all and you might benefit from an inhaler like Albuterol. If it is allergy related, something like Nasonex or Flonase might be of help.
