Lump In Throat

Posted , 3 users are following.

So I have had IBS for many many years.  Now I am experiencing a lump in my throat when I have an episode.  When I say episode I mean the cramping and hours pass untill I can pass stool.  So the cramping last for hours and then I get this new symptoms which is a lump in my throat and I have to keep spitting in a cup to relieve the feeling or I will throw up.   Does anyone experience this lump?  I just called the dr to see if there is any medication I can take to make the episodes from comming on so often.  I use to have them a few times a year now I get them once a week!!

    Ya it is not anxiety because it only happens when I am having an episode of the cramping and diarhea.    Once I go the bathroom the feeling goes away.
