Good days and bad days.

Posted , 9 users are following.

Does anybody find they can have a good day with minimum symptoms and out of the blue have a bad day where everything is on quite a high scale?

      Thanks for your reply Tracey. Disappointing it went then came back. I'm trying to watch foods.That's what I don't understand how it's so variable! Hopefully sometime it will go and not come back for you. X

    Yes it's normal. Perhaps think back after feeling good or bad to see if there are triggers that form a pattern.

      Thankyou. I'm keeping a diary and cutting out acidic food and drink. Think over exertion might contribute. Today I'm having a very restful day so will be interesesting to see how that goes. Trying to stay calm too. Thankyou.💕

      Thanks Sheila. I'm working at trying to figure out the triggers. Over doing it seems to bring mine on, also seems worse at 7 o'clock every night. Take care.

      I have noticed mine can come on in the evening as well. Perfectly relaxed watching TV.  Perhaps after coffee?  i have read that swallowing makes it worse so i try to avoid that by biting my knuckle or opening my mouth. Hard not to swallow thou' when you feel the urge!

      Thanks for your reply. It annoys me but I am so glad it's not painful. Like trying to solve a puzzle though 😵 I find chewing gum help s. Hope you have a good week.

    All the time.  Been like that forever.  It can even be where I have a bad morning ( mornings are the worst time for me. ) then have a decent afternoon.  The cycle begins again the next day.  I have learned that some of us are highly sensitized to many things...certain foods, medicines, stress and even the wind ... yes even that ...many people get a physical symptom and just go on ignoring it until it disappears....but some like myself feel every sensation intensely which brings on over concerned feelings.  Take it from there.

      Thanks for your reply. Quite a mysterious illness and hard to fathom. Yes I'm trying to figure out triggers but it is not easy. Take care. X

      Thanks for your reply. I start off good in the morning and then have it mild all day and then in the evening if gets bad. I am on antacids tablets but they haven't taken it away but think they are helping a bit as it is not as unbearable as it was at the beginning. Strange !!!

    My globus sensation never leaves me. I may have a better day here and there, but for 99.9% of the time it's unbearable. I can not take it anymore!!! It'll be two years in July and I'm not the person I used to be anymore. This has affected my quality of life immensely. I never even knew it existed until I got it. Only someone that has this problem can grasp what it's like. Yes, it may not be a life threatening  condition, but it can be quite debilitating.

    , but it can really be debilitating.

      I'm so sorry Simba. I can understand how you feel. I had never heard of it until I got it. I had one really bad day and thought it was unbearable. I don't think anyone can really understand it unless they have it.

      I wish I could say something to help you but hope knowing others care helps.Thinking about you x

      Gosh I empathise with you.  It's awful.  I had never heard of it before I got it either.  I get horrible phlegm in my throat which I can't clear too.  Consultant says I need to keep throat hydrated which I'm trying to do but nit making much difference! 

      Please someone find a cure!

      Thanks Chele, its some condition isn't it? When mine flares up I get loads of phlem and have to keep swallowing constantly. Good to have this forum to speak to others with the same.

      I have that as well due to my allergies. I Jason have a constant tickle in my throat that makes things worse. I drink water, tea with honey all day long, but that doesn’t help much.

      I do understand.  My globus  appeared suddenly and drove me crazy for 5 years non-stop. Then one day I got up and it was gone.  Very bizarre.  I still get the golf ball stuck in the throat  feeling every now and then but try to use positive self talk.  It’s ok it’s just a feeling. It will go away.  I found that if I concentrated on it it got worse.
