I Have This Odd Feeling Like Something Is Stuck In The Middle Of My Throat.

I have also been having some slight trouble swallowing solid foods so I have lost my appetite and quite a bit of weight. I cant see a doctor until Feb. 1st because my insurance doesn't kick in until then. I try to cough it out but no matter how hard I try nothing changes and I just end up with a soar throat.

Answer

Hi there

I am glad you are going to see a doctor about this. This would be my first suggestion. Are you having any other symptoms? Do you have post nasal drip, acid reflux, a feeling like something is obstructing the throat? Have you had your tonsils out?

This feeling can also be caused by anxiety and it is called Globus Hystericus which simply means an anxiety induced lump in the throat sensation. You may wish to visit the link and read my article on this but also all the comments from members. There are things people try which seem to help.

I hope that you find out what is causing this soon. Please do come back and let us know how you are doing.
