Posted , 7 users are following.

i'm only a 17 year old girl and I've had a camera down my throat and had my doctor look at it and all is clear they diagnosed me with anxiety and i'm starting my medicine soon. my symptoms are I feel like I can't breath when I breath in through my nose or it feels like I have too much cold air in there like I just ran in 20 degree weather, I get really creepy cold sensations in my throat and sometimes it burns or sometimes I feel like i'm choking and it makes me want to gag and sends me into a full blown panic attack. does anyone else have these symptoms?? I feel so alone in this.. my doctor says I have globus sensation but I don't feel a lump.. do you think it's still globus sensation? all these feelings in my throat bother me soooo much and i'm so hypersensitive about it ugh sad just need some advice or people to relate with me. thanks.

    Hi lily 

    i can relate i get a lump in my throat and i get the anxieties. The lump in my throat is due to being sad or anxiuos or when i feel like crying. 

    I do not know what globus is but the anxieties and panic attacks make it hard for me to breathe thats because we are breathing shallow when we need to do some deep breathing 

    Hang in there you will be fine

      im so sorry about your mom and if they said you were fine at the er i assure you you are and the ent will prob say the same yes its sooooo good to find someone who relates to me  feel free to like text me or message me or something if you want to bc i really need someone who understands what im going throough. i know its hard to believe that its nothing when it feels like something sooo real and maybe medicine like lexapro will help me and if you want to try you too. i know its nothing in reality bc it goes away when i dont think about it but when i do its horrid and it makes me wanna be rushed to the hospital and its the worst bc im so scared that i feel like i cant even talk about it or tell anyone what im feeling bc its just soooo hard for people w/o anxiety like me to understand.. please feel free to talk to me and we can reassure eachother i really need someone who gets it. thanks.

      Lily I was wondering if you also have other fears or phobias or is it always surrounding your throat? In the past they said I had intrusive thoughts disorder it was unwanted thoughts that would consume me on certain subjects and I'd become obsessed over them and scared like for example when my anxiety comea back around in life at a high like this I start thinking I have cancers or I'm gonna die and its like living in fear then the depression follows it's a cycle that I been dealing with for years but when I do have a moment when it goes away I live it up to the fullest because this ATM is just hell I couldn't wish it on my worst enemy really my dr put me on Zoloft I was on ativan for the anxiety two years ago but took my self off that seemed to help with the thought process and more in the area of helping u forget or keep u from thinking of the throat issue which was nice at times I think about getting back on I start the Zoloft Tuesday so I hope it helps just remember ur not alone in this I'm right there with you I understand completely

      Haha I got this phobia when I was diagnosed with polycystic ovarian disease, when I searched on google about it I started to think that I am very suffering with a big disease lol even before starting anti depressant I was afraid of word death die dead etc lol

      And when I got stomach issues last year I thought It will be back again in same month of this year, and I don't wear those dresses which I wore during illness lol funny crap though anxious one too but somewhat strong now

      Why not we make our own group in whatsapp ? Anybody who interested message me their number,onlY ladies please

      There we can share other happy moments also ,because it is not good to discuss onlY disease or bad events... take care all stay healthy my dear girls

      YES lol before this throat thing i was convinced i had a brain tumor, throat cancer, and was going to die of a heart attack. my throat issue didnt start until way after the panic attacks so i am pretty sure it is a physical symptom
