I have health anxiety and recently after a fluey type things realised I still had a swollen gland so I went to the docs who said I had a bit of a fever and he gave me some antibiotics to take for a week he said if the gland didn't go down I could go back and I could have a cat scan and a blood try f I wanted but he was rather casual about it and didn't seem too concerned, yesterday I finished the antibiotics and the gland is still there!
I am trying to use this as a chance to over come my anxiety by not rushing to the doctors for these tests and I'm trying to believe that im fine (the fact I didn't go to the docs yesterday is a huge step for me as usually I'd use any excuse to go)
This gland however is coupled with the fact that when I lie down I feel like something is obstructing my throat (I do have big tonsils) but I also constantly feel like I have someone's hand around my throat.. And I constantly feel like there's a lump in there, I've felt like this for the last year (since suffering with anxiety) and I must admit when I'm busy as not thinking about it I don't notice the feeling.
I would love to hear other people experiences with this feeling as I know it's a common sign of anxiety and I would like to put my mind at ease
