Tightness in throat

Posted , 5 users are following.

I went golfing and had 2 walk a hill with my clubs to go to the clubhouse 2 go pay. I felt a tightness or lump feeling in my throat kinda by my Adams apple. I looked it up and just came up anxiety. It kinda went away as the round went on but now it's back again. Never had this feeling with anxiety before.

Should I just chalk this up to anxiety or should I be concerned. I have heart tests done that have come back fine so anxiety it is??

Thanks everyone

    Do you have any idea why you are putting this down to anxiety ? If someone feels they are upset and going to cry, yes I suppose it ay be anxiety

    If you are a sufferer did something cause this problem

      I was just walking up a hill with my golf clubs and it hit me. I wasn't thinking about anything. It went away like didn't really bother me while I was golfing but it's still kinda lingering now. Went for a walk yesterday and I was fine so.... I have heard this symptom associated with anxiety so that's why I suggested anxiety.

      Thanks

      Sometimes this will happen if stressed or over anxious about something.

      I find if I get this type of feeling it is something that has entered my mind

      Someties it is related to a lump in your throat, anxiety, sadness

      It happened to me last time I was away, I entered a room and felt same, I thought I may cry, I have no idea why, very strange

      You know where we are if you are concerned about anything

    Anxiety it is. You should be on a antidepressant,so you get rid of it.

    Anxiety can cause that globus sensation that you're having, but so can gerd and sinus problems. It's a good thing that it comes and goes, instead of a "lump" that doesn't simmer down. It wouldn't hurt to have a doctor check you over, just so you know for certain that this is stemming solely from anxiety. I've noticed that the more you relax, and not think about it, the sooner it goes down.

    I've been dealing with the same issue for months now, and am scheduled to see an ENT doctor September 1st. My sinuses are currently infected again, recently started having silent refulx after a gallbladder removal surgery, and I've had anxiety for years. Soooo, it could really be anything at this point.

    Best of luck to you.
