    Oh big time. I hate that symptom. It's one of the symptoms I can't stand the most at night! I feel like I have a big ole piece of food or something stuck in my throat. Lol it's definitely unpleasant.

    I usually try to drink some warm water or fennel tea. I really find with this symptom that it is the one that disappears most easily if I just stop thinking about it.

      It's called a throat spasm.the more you swallow to see if it's still there longer it will stay.Person I know had a barium meal to prove it was just a spasm they saw it on camera throat clear as could be .Hey presto problem solved no more lump in throat. The mind plays havoc hey if one lets it.your be fine give up thinking on it like they did

      it's almost like that feeling you get if you're trying not to cry but it lasts longer, I find it to be quite painful but not frightening which helps me to forget about it! I imagine for people who find this symptom frightening that it can be quite a nuisance smile

    HI,

    just like when you swallowed a GOBSTOPPER when you were a kid,LOL.

    Once you realise the lump isn't going to get bigger and choke you, then its just annoying. With experience of all these symptoms you find they eventualy go.

    Ok, not much help really, but knowing it will pass always helps me put the lump into perspective and not worry unduly about it.

    Best wishes,

    Alex
