    Hi I've had this for a year now and am completely sick of it all. My symptoms range from sore throats to sore tongue to gum problems and at night if I eat too late I need 3 pillows to stop me coughing. It is driving me nuts to be honest ; my Dr said it must be very annoying he doesn't know the half of it. I genuinely want to rip my throat out at times. There are also certain things I can't eat because it seems to get stuck in my throat and certain foods make the sensation worse. No one has any answers and its incredibly frustrating. This all began after I had top and bottom wisdom teeth out. what to do? I have no idea. It's really a mAssive issue - because it's not life threatening and endoscopies scans an x rays are clear no one actually gives a s...t now. Nearly at my wits end.

    Yes I'm with both of you here. Mine is chiefly on the right hand side. I drink a litre of liquid every night. I have a hoarse voice if I talk too much and am continually clearing my throat which they advise against. I've trIed the reflux meds route to no avail. My doctor just keeps telling me to research online and if I find anything interesting to let him know. If I get a cold my throat is even more unbearable and the usual symptoms are exacerbated. I have to believe them when they tell me there is nothing more sinister going on like yourself otherwise I just couldn't see any future for me going on like this and maybe getting worse.

      Yes if i also get a sore throat or cold it makes it a lot worse ,i also drink loads of water per day i also sometimes feel i need to have ice lollies just given up trying to get rid it. My only concern is the constant sort throat one side each swallow making it harder to ignore that its there.i also worry is more sinister and yes tony its the mucus thing also that gets me as it makes me need to keep clearing my throat is very annoying

    My biggest concern is that no one seems to be concerned about it, which leads

    me to fear that maybe something is there that they may be missing. I fear the unknown....I have had this now since last April. I've been on prenisone, and that didn't work, I have a low acidic diet that I am to folllow, which doesn't really have any affect on the globus and I have been off of caffeine for several months, no change.

    I personally think it is stress. Unfortunately, the more I think about it, the more stressed out I get. I can even tell when I am stressed by something, the symptoms actually worsen. So weird. I can also tell that it moves from side to side or in the center of my throat. I was diagnosed with chronic laryngitis, and my voice is often hoarse. Not really sure what else to think. I just wish it would go away.

      Yep, just the same here.  When I wake up first thing in the morning normally I feel fine but within minutes of getting up and moving around bam.......it's back and there's no respite for the rest of the day.   If I can engage myself and be really busy I actually cope much better with it.  Let us know what the ENT doc says.x

      I understand where you're coming from, I think we all kind of fear that one but you know reading all these posts we're all in the same boat.

      Unlike you, I don't accept it's stress although that does seem to be the

      general consensus, my Dr. has said he thinks it's a 'mechanical' issue but has no further ideas sadly.  My biggest issue is that there is no one to speak to who seems to know what we're all going through, no one seems to have any ideas about the best way to manage the problem.  I've been on this site for a year now and really am no further forward - people have mentioned stuff and I put forward some exercises that an osteopath had advised but it's still the same.  I read on Wikipedia that after 5 years I think it was 45% of people notice an improvement which means that 55% of us are stuck with it.... what a thought......I think all we can do is keep researching, keep supporting each other with practical/wacky! suggestions and hope for the best.x
