Globus?

Posted , 5 users are following.

Hi everyone I suffer with bad anxiety I am having a ultra sound Thursday on my throat but I just wanted to see if any one thinks it's what I have, I have this lump/clicking feeling in my throat, no visible lumps or swollen glands I have it on my right side and only feel it really when I'm looking left and swallowing it doesn't affect my eating or drinking but my neck muscles feel so tight on that side, I'm only 26 with a 19 month old son I'm so scared! Thanks in advance x

    Hi Charlotte, I am sorry you are going through this. It could well be. Anxiety can really wreck havoc with your body. Tight muscles can cause so many symptoms too.

    I also suffer from anxiety and have a baby. I try to focus on how lucky I am to have her when I have a bad day to put things in to perspective. It's not easy. Hope it works out for you. I am sure if your ultrasound is clear you will feel some relief. If you get your head around the fact that these symptoms can be caused by anxiety and not something else that can help too. All the best and keep us posted.

    Thank you for responding I have had it constant for 2 weeks now it's so annoying my doctor has referred me to speak to someone to see if that helps also upped my medication from 20mg to 40mg citalapram it's very frustrating isn't it, I've had anxiety for 4 years and never had this before I did the wrong thing by going on Google when it first happened and it said throat cancer! Just wish it would go away 😓 xx

    Hi Charlotte. I have been a sufferer of Globus for over a year now. I went to my Doctor thinking it was something bad and that's when he diagnosed me with depression and anxiety. My throat feels exactly like yours does and its brought on by anxiety. Days when my anxiety is low I don't notice it but when its high I feel it. Good luck with your ultra sound but I'm sure it will be fine. Take care.
