What triggers it? Does anyone think air pressure change can do it. Also have weakened and had a couple of diet cans...

  • Not sure this is Globus.

    I have what feels like a small piece of food or maybe a skin tag in the upper left part of my throat. I have seen ENT and had a cat scan but they showed nothing.
