Lump sensation in the throat - RHS?????

Hi there,

I'm new to this site. I thought I would join, as every time I keep googling my symptoms threads from this site nearly always come up. Well my symptoms are a lump sensation/feeling in my throat. Some days it can feel like somebody has there hands aound my throat, another day it can feel there is a peanut or pill stuck. Some days it can feel in the middle but mainly on the right hand side. Today, now it feels like 'fuzz' 'hair ball' a large mass in my throat. It is driving me crazy, making me feel anxious and to the point of panic.

The doc has referred me to the ENT department; however this isn't until July 9th!! And I've had this feeling for 2-3 months! It's driving me crazy, affecting my quality of life. The docs think I'm nuts, I've been back 3 times and today will be my 4th as now I'm getting a neckache and it looks like my right tonsil is larger than the left? They think it's anxiety and I feel I'm not taken seriously? So today will be a firmer, more direct Nina!

They have offered me Vallium, referred me for CBT pyscological therapy! But all I want to know is what this is in my throat? Not take drugs to chill me out! The feeling is there everyday, only break I get from it is when I eat? One doc said I have 'Globus Hystericus' I've researched the arse off this and it does sound very likely that it is this but I can't help thinking the worse? I have bloods taken to check my Thyroid - clear. A full blood count as well, that came back ok apart from my white cells were slightly up, he said due to an infection (I did have a cold at the time)

It doesn't stop you from worrying. See my docs haven't even mentioned acid reflux? Just wrote it off as Globus and anxiety related. Also I asked them to re-refer me to ENT faster as I felt the symptoms were getting worse but they couldn't. Does anyone suffer from what I have been? It's really getting me down, my partner is affected by it - obviously. Docs won't take me seriously? I would pay all the money in the world to get rid of this constant feeling.... Please help!!!

Re: Lump sensation in the throat - RHS?????

HI there! I have the VERY SAME THING!! And I have been wondering what it is too. I google things and then it scares me. Mine is on the left side. If I were to press on my tonsil from the outside on my neck behind my chin I can put my finger on the spot that feels like there is a lump or its thick in there. If I stretch my neck it can make like a spasm in there and it will hurt. I have had like a cramp in there and had to stretch my neck. Its just down my throat. I do have acid reflux and it has been flaring up. I wonder if I have scar tissue damage, or a cyst or hopefully nothing worse. Do you think those things too? I am thinking of going and seeing an ENT and having him put a camera down my throat. Let me know what you find out. Good luck.

Unhappy Re: Lump sensation in the throat - RHS?????

I have been having the same symptoms since I had a terrible bout of the flu in 2006. Since then I've had the clear mucus down the back of my throat. I have been to my family doctor,a pulmonary specialist,an allergist and had septal perforation surgery performed by my ENT. I have taken many antibiotics,nasal sprays and over the counter allergy and flu medications. I have listened to everything and acted on it but I get days when it is unpleasant and the chokey feeling is frightening. I do not have it all the time but it has really not gone away. Every morning as well as in the day I have the thick clear mucus come down the back of my throat and I have to keep clearing my throat to bring it up. I have NEVER smoked in my life. I also blow my nose a lot. I have an appointment to see the ENT specialist who performed the septal perforation surgery in 2008 but I don't know what can be done for me. He repaired the septal perforation but the symptoms still persist. I feel tired,sick and old. This is really affecting my quality of life and keeps me in a state of severe depression. I haven't explored the possibility of acid reflux but maybe I should bring it up to my ENT.

Re: Lump sensation in the throat - RHS?????

Well dear let me tell you my story. On St.Patrick's day 2006 I got a bad case of the flu and ever since then I've been going through what you're going through. My symptoms are nose blowing,sore throat,constant mucus in throat,tonsil stones,tooth erosion and passing gas. I had surgery with my ENT in 2008 because he said I had a septal perforation and that was causing the constant nose blowing and mucus in throat. I had the surgery and the symptoms got worst because hate to be graphic I would be blowing out hard chunks of mucus mixed with blood from my nose. WEll come to find out I was severely anemic as well and since quadrupling my dosage of iron the hard mucus from nose has stopped but I'm still left with what appears to be either silent acid reflux or post-nasal drip. Due to my post-nasal drip I've avoided dentists for the past five years which my doctor told me could be causing the tonsil stones cause post-nasal drip and bacteria in the mouth causes tonsil stones cause the mouth is unclean. If your doctors feel your symptoms are anxiety related have they prescribed anti-anxiety medication for you such as Xanax?

Re: Lump sensation in the throat - RHS?????

My mom and aunt and I suffered from this -- it is from acid reflux, oddly enough. Talk to the Dr. about prescription strength acid reducer like Nexium. Best of luck!

PS. also try a low dose of anxiety medication too, like .25 of Xanax. The anxiety can trigger acid reflux and make it worse.
