    Lump in throat

    ...but no tightening or difficulty swallowing. At first I thought it was oral thrush, but after three bottles of Mycostatin it still hasn't shifted. My GP can't see anything with his light and tongue depressor, and has advised Betadine throat gargle, which makes me feel nauseous.

    I've heard the words globus and cricopharyngeal spasm, but isn't the symptoms a lump AND tight throat? I don't have the tightening, just the (highly irritating!) lump sensation.

    Any advice please?

    I had this yrs. ago & the Dr. told me it was stress related. He put me on 2mg of valium & that took care of it!
    Good Luck
