My life with Globus continues....
It's been two years + now since I was diagnosed with Globus the only trouble is that my mind just cant accept this and always thinks that it is something more sinister..
My symptoms are / have been..
Tight / Uncomfortable sensation whilst swallowing, like there is something there.
Constant thinking about the sensation of swallowing ( due to constant throat sensations)
Clicking in throat when swallowing, worse when drinking liquid.
Stabbing pains under jaw
Feeling that there is something coating the back of my toungue
Senstations worse when tired but not as bad in a morning when i wake up
Long term tickly cough 4-5 months
Different food and drink irritates my throat
My tests/ treatment over the last two years include..
Loads of blood tests including several full tests
Six endoscopies ( camera up nose looking down at throat) with 4 different consultants
One Gastroscopy ( camera down throat & oesophagus to look for damage / anything sinister)
Lots of different Doctors and Consultants feeling my Lymph glands
CBT (Cognative Behavioural Therapy)
Clinical Psycology (Current)
Lansoprazole (in case i have silent reflux)
Two chest xrays
All tests came back clear.. But even after all that lot I am still no better with the Globus and have a second Gastroscopy coming up in early February to check for changes to the condition of my oesophagus and throat since the last one
Please message me if you have had or are having simlar experiences with Globus as it is driving me to distraction at the moment..
I look forward to hearing from you
Best Wishes to all fellow sufferers... I will update after next gastroscopy.
