Seen ENT but still very scared and confused
Hi all, a couple of months ago I got a piece of apple peel lodged in my throat and I feel it's still there. I've been examined three times now by ENT docs - most recently yesterday by a consultant. He was my last hope - but again, he couldn't see anything and diagnosed me with 'globus pharyngeus.' Meaning that although I feel a lump in my throat, there's actually nothing there.
I'm so confused. At what point did the peel vacate my throat and leave me with phantom symptoms instead?
It feels even worse today and I am absolutely convinced the peel is still there. I can feel it distinctly. I'm now really scared that it's actually lodged beneath my vocal cords - he couldn't put the nasal endoscope beyond them because it made me gag too much.
I'm so fed up and scared - what do I do next? I feel all the docs have now written me off as 'imagining' my condition. Should I now just leave it and hope that it resolves on its own? I can't face any more medical appointments but I can't live with this feeling either...
Any advice very welcome, thank you.
