Posted , 5 users are following.

Last year i was told i had globus after i had a camera down through my nose into throat, i was ok with this but after a yr i am still having issues with this, i have started to feel the lump sensation more, But i have started to feel a slight soreness in throat when i swallow on the left side alll the time and when i swallow some foods and it goes down on that side i can slightly feel it...I am able to swallow ok nothing gets stuck,but been really worried & ive got 15 more days before i go for another camera down to have a look.... anyone else got this, could this just be due to the way i been swallowing as  due to the lump sensation i swallow harshly as alwasy trying to clear my throat and i also get what feels like  lot of mucus stuck in throat too. anyone replies suffering same be appreciated. thank u

    Hi bristolmaid1,

    Welcome to my world! I've had this globus a month ago, went to ent specialist, told me the same thing. After a couple of days, it went away.  Since last week, I woke up with the same lump feeling and it has been there ever since. I'm not sure why, but I'm trying to not think about it and keep busy. I find distractions work well for a while, but then my thoughts drift back to my throat and voila! It's back.

    According to some research i did regarding the causes, it says stress and anxiety can be a trigger. I do have a big change in my life coming up which isn't the greatest so I am guessing maybe there is a connection? It's a very disturbing feeling, even though i can't call it "painful". My current goal is to just beat this little s***ty thing with a strong mindset and consciously divert my thoughts to other things. So far, it's a battle that I am not winning. But you are not alone! Have you found anything that works for you? Even if it's just for a short time?

    Hi bristolmaid1

    Sorry didnt reply sooner - I know exactly how you are feeling - have identical symptoms! Have been to ENT two weeks ago - and have appointment for Barium swallow in 2 weeks. Sometimes feels better sometimes worse - but never goes away.

    I was helped by a series of exercises that somebody on here gave me - will never know if it was those - if it was going to get better anyway - or stopped stressing about it!! If you want them, let me know or contact person on this discussion called gill31686 - good luck. I also have the mucus feeling (feels like string in my throat all the time.

    Hi, only just seen this post, but yes, I have exactly the same symptoms.  My problem is the other side of the throat though.........have just read on here that someone has had this problem for 13 years - makes me want to curl up and disappear to be honest with that thought.  Let us know how you get on with the endoscopy.  When I had mine they said there were no signs of globus lesions or anything else but the Dr. says that this is what I have.....am just hoping one day to come onto the forum and find that someone has found some sort of cure or relief, but I'm not holding my breath.  There seems to be v. little help out there in medical land.  My doctor mentioned last time that he thought it must be 'very annoying'  if I was a violent person I may well have punched him!   He doesn't know the half of it does he?
