After months of suffering from what I thought was at various times a sore throat, having something stuck back there, my tonsils growing back in, cancer, etc., I think may be this Globus Sensation which I just began researching. I've seen an ENT who told me it was probably allergies and told me to take Flonase and Zyrtec-D, neither which seemed to do much. I've also had acid reflux for over a decade now and was a pack-a-day smoker. A year ago I quit smoking cold turkey and maybe as a result haven't had to take Pepcid as much for my reflux (even managed to lose 30 lbs. by dieting and exercising). However, I am highly stressed, both at home and work (my wife has health issues and my oldest child will be going off to college next year). I'm also a war veteran (no combat or PTSD though), and have always been told my whole life to "suck it up" when something is bothering me, but this lump in my throat, this feeling of phlegm that I can't seem to cough up and just sits back there and can seem to grow and intensify, is quite simply driving me insane. I don't trust the doctors know what they're doing, and do somewhat believe most of this could be stress-induced/mental health related. Does anyone suggest therapy/anti-depression meds for this problem?
