anyone with anxiety have a constant lump in there throat? like there's something lodged at the back? ive been struggling with depression and anxiety since school, I turn 21 at the end of the month and im struggling everyday with a lump in my throat constantly and it's really getting me down. It constantly makes me feel unwell and it's really draining me and im just so fed up with it. Ive got a phycyatrist coming Monday morning as I struggle with panick attacks, leaving the house, phobia of being sick, so hopefully I can get some help.. my doctor has gave me anti sickness to help stop with the feeling in my throat, i was on Fluoxitine for anxiety but got taken off it as I felt worse.. im really struggling and wonder if anyone else has struggled with the same horrible feeling im there throat, is it anxiety? or can it be something else it really is getting me down Im 21 at the end of the month and fed up of life already because of feeling like this

    Have your trick cyclist appointment and explain your concerns. It seems like your GP is putting this down to anxiety. If they feel or you need to put your mind at rest they can put an endoscope down your throat and see if they can see anything.

    Can you feel any lumps through your skin ?. I have a lump on the back of my neck for at least forty years. I would miss it if they decided to evacuate it now

      ive been googling about it and come across the endoscope thing and read a few things about it and it scares me .. Im a real wuss with things and especially if Id have to go through that and would need to be put to sleep for it but ive read they don't.. i Google everything..

      I can't feel no lumps or bumps it just feels like something's lodged in my throat every time I swallow, tightness and when I eat it feels like it just stays in my throat if you know what I mean.. sad

    I used to have that before going on meds. I know terrible. There are many other antidepressants you can try. I would also try yoga and meditation. Make sure you keep to follow up

      My phycyatrist came Monday and prescribed me Mirtazapine to see how I get on with them, I know it takes a few weeks for them to start working so fingers crossed.

      Thankyou, I'll definitely give them ago aswell, it really is taking over my life and stopping me from doing everything sad

    hi , new here. Yes, I've been suffering with panic attacks for about 8 years and over the last six months my anxiety has got worse. I still have a lump in my throat every day. I feel like I am dying. I feel very confused and lightheaded and very weak and when I'm walking I feel like I can pass out at any minute. I wouldn't wish this on my worst enemy. My wife is in hospital right now and I haven't even been to see her can't face the thought of driving
