    I get the same feeling myself. It come and goes, and at times really freaks me out. The feeling of a lump there seems to always be there, but sometimes my throat will feel as if its swelling up, and its terrifying. I believe myself its nothing. I feel as if it was something serious something bad would of happened as ive been feeling like this for awhile. I can still eat and drink with no problem. Even when the lump is there. Look up Globus hystericus that might be what your experiencing.

    Hi. The technical term is globus sensation. I have suffered on/off for nearly 2 years. It's really horrible, I never suffered from anxiety before this. I went to ENT to get it checked. All I can say is it does get better if you try to relax, but easier said than done.
