    Try to stay calm and relaxed if you can. Google Globus Hysteria. That is a very common symptom of Peri and Menopause. I had it from April to November last year. Many of us on this forum have it. And yes, ive had food get caught in my throat, lump sensation, trouble swallowing and sore throat as well all coming and going whenever. Ive gotten use to it. The lump in throat feeling went away finally. But i still have have mild sore throat off and on with ear pain in my right ear. Stay strong, this is all just another part of life for many of us. Hugs to you. ps...im 51

    Yes i had this last yr. Lasted 2 months. I had difficulty swallowing, chocked a few times. It was quite a scary time. Didn't eat much because my mind was going crazy thinking that i was going to choke to death. Hang in there it will pass

    I've had this on and off for 3 years, my gp sent me for endoscopy it got so bad at one stage. Thank god all results were fine. It is an anxiety thing, which I suffer with since peri started 4 years ago. I take a herbal capsule called Ashwagada, it really helps take the edge off the anxiety, which in turn help with the throat and dry mouth issues.
