Hello I am 20 years old and I believe I may have Globus Sensation. It started 4/5 months ago with an incident where I thought i was choking/ had a piece of food stuck (I did not). For hours I tried coughing anything up and looking in my throat to see if I could see anything abnormal. I did have some irritation & cobble stoning in the back of my throat, however nothing that should have cause the inability to swallow. That night and the following night I did not sleep and i have not eaten solid food since. I have had every test besides an ultra sound of my thyroid (several blood tests, ENT scope, GI endoscopy, xrays, CAT scans, Swallow studies (barrium swallow incomplete due to panic attack). I have lost 20/25 pounds, im already only 5'3" and petite. I have developed gall stones as a result of the weight loss and I fear that I will become more unhealthy as the weeks go by. I am on a liquid diet however I am not healthy enough to go about normal everyday activites. I am afraid for my life Please give any advice. Additionally I am being treated for acid reflux (omeprazol + liquid Kerafin?) My family doctor wants to start me on Amatryptaline (antidepressant as well as for globus patients?) please help me I dont know what to do anymore Ive been to many doctors with no avail. I feel very alone and afraid many people look at me and assume i have an eating disorder. I very much would love to start eating again and get back to a normal healthy life.
