I was first diagnosed with globus a few weeks ago. It all started one evening when I was eating a sandwich, I ate the first half fine but when I got to the second half all of a sudden my food started to feel like it was getting stuck and i started to panic. So I went straight to a&e as I felt I couldn't breathe properly, they tried to tell me that the reason my throat felt tight was because of my hayfever allergy, so I went for a 2nd opinion at a different hospital and they did an endoscopy and said my throat was fine, but I still wasn't sure because I couldn't eat at all because of the tension in my throat and the fear of food getting stuck. I ended up going to the hospital again and they said it was just anxiety causing the symptoms but I still wasn't convinced. A few days later I went to the doctors and she said I had globus straight away and gave me a nasal spray and said it would settle down and go away which it hasn't, I've now had it for almost 2 months and its really starting to get me down, I keep thinking there is something seriously wrong with me. I am only 17 and it really does scare me, I've tried breathing techniques and massaging my neck but nothing seems to work . Could somebody reassure me or give me some guidance in this situation? My throat does get tight and feels dry sometimes and back of my mouth gets uncomfortable too is this normal? And will it go away, would very much appreciate a reply..... thanks
