    Dear Sharon

    I have tight muscles in the neck - some days worse than others. I also from time to time feel the blob in my throat and periods of feeling a lump when I swallow.

    Both is due to anxiety. There is no lump but if I worry about it I can suddenly feel it.

    HI Sharon,

    Yes I had this symptom for weeks at age 49 when most of my symptoms started. A few women replied to me and said it is called globus sensation and can be related to silent reflux or GERD etc. I had never experienced it before - it came on with a ton of other symptoms.
