Hi dear globus hystericus sufferers. I feel for you like noone else, that is the reason I decided to write in this forum to let you know how I resolved my globus hystericus sensation.
First, I'll tell you what I was experiencing. Like with others, I've had this on different occassions with feeling like someone is strangling me and a lump sensation in my throat. Allways it seems to be related to my stress and anxiety levels. The last bout was so intense I could barely last that day without breaking down into tears. It started with an anxiety episode when I was worried because my husband was not replying to my texts or calls all day long. I started freaking out and thinking the worst. My heartrate increased, racing thoughts, could not concentrate on anything and got a feeling of a lump being stuck in my throat or behind my throat in my neck, it was difficult to pinpoint. When it's a mild sensation I only feel it when I swallow, when its intense I constantly feel a lump. It gets better with eating and swallowing. So yesterday I could not do anything because of this feeling and felt like staying in bed. I could not concentrate on Anything. But when I lie down it seemed to be worse. Besides this lump sensation that is the most annoying debilitating symptom, I also felt like my neck was tense, the muscles in my neck were contracted all the time, like a muscle spasm. Feeling like someone is chocking you with their hands.
Let me tell you what I tried. Based on the feeling that it was muscle tension linked to unease of anxiety I did 2 things in a row and it seemed to help right away. The next morning Im feeling much better and the globus sensation is gone. I still feel like my someone was beating me in the neck and head all night though. I always feel it when I get bad anxiety. Anxiety is no fun as well.
I have this needle acupuncture mat. I lied down on it pressing it in the back of my neck for half an hour, moving it every 5 minutes to hit different spots on my neck. Then, I took a heating pad, filled it with hot water and put it on the back of my neck and lied down on it for another half hour or so. Both things, I believe, relaxed the TENSE SPASMED MUSCLES in my neck AND THROAT because everything is connceted so that made my globus hystericus muscle relax as well. Please try if youre suffering hard. It helped me and hopefully can help others. Please let me know if it does or doesnt. Might as well try this if there is no other cure. I hope it wont come back but it always can.
