    Have you seen a doctor ? If you have and they cant see any obvious reason then it could be systemamtic of anxiety or worry

      It does seem frustrating when a doc says its ok, but its because they can tell very quickly if there's an issue, and globus is so common and not at all serious. They could send you to ent, but most certainly they would say the same. Even on this site there are many with the same issue,all caused by anxiety

    Its very normal, its called a globus sensation.  Your throat tightens when anxious so we become aware of the normal mucas drainage at the back of the throat. it then doesnt take long to then become fixated on it. Ive had it for over a year, worse sometimes than others, feels very much like excess mucas or something stuck, but it never is

    Ok so if 2 doctor have looked then there is likely to be no infection, they will proably have done oxygen saturation test to ensure you get enough oxygen in and there no blockages.

    have you swallowed anything that may have irritated your throat ? Do you have an pain around the eyes ( sinuses )  as blockages here can sometime make you feel the way you do?

    What are the symptoms of anxiety? Is it possible to seperate between anxiety or some throat problem like cancer?

      They are different with everyone and for different reasons, talking with your Dr is probably the first stage, don't research it yourself as it gives you preconceptions that aren't helpful when the doc is trying to diagnose
