Lump in the throat

Posted , 18 users are following.

Hi I'm new. Really suffering with health anxiety at the moment. Started citaLOPRam just under two weeks ago. I have a lump in my throat. It does come and go but feels like phlegm and a can hack some up sometimes. Is this the same as anyone else sad

    Hi Bramble, I get the feeling too. Does it feel like a pill stuck in the back of your throat? Mine was acid reflux hopefully yours is too.

    I have this too and it gets worse the more you worry about it. Sometimes it starts to feel as if your airway is blocked which can further increase anxiety! It's a vicious circle but hang in there and know you are not alone. x

      I know what you mean, sometimes I feel I can't swallow properly. But when I get pain or feelings or discomfort, is it really there? Because it's real to me, my partner works nights and when gets not here I am worst. I feel that I can't keep going to the doctors. I will only see one, in the practice, I feel like I'm wasting his time, or he will cart me off to hospital, they will find one thing bad and I am going to die. So many people I know, some well and some aqaintances are ill with cancer, my mum died at 55 with cancer, I am 58 and feel it must be my turn because all these people have got something, I will be next. Then sometimes I am ok and don't worry as much, it's raking over, help.

    It's a very odd sensation but try not to let your anxiety win! It will make the lump. Take nice deep breaths and try to relax. It will pass! X

    You will gradually lose this feeling, it feels bad but will definitely pass as its just the worry causing it, nothing else. I've had it before and got over it. Tell yourself thats its felt like this before and passed!

    ps could anyone check out my discussion please

    Hey there.....I've had the same thing when I was on lexapro. It bugged me for a long time, until I got it checked. (They stuck a tube down my throat) and it was acid reflux. I got a prescription for it and I was ok in couple of days.

    my advise is to stay away from foods that cause acid for a while (tomatoes for ex), and if it goes away, it's anxiety...if not, get it checked.Trust me, there is nothing serious, either anxiety or acid reflux..

    best of luck....
