Globus Hystericus, lump in throat feeling
mandadandadawn posted:
I have had this feeling for going on 7 months now. I have gone to 3 different family doctors anan ENT as well as a stomach DR. Had an egd done with the diagnoses of GERD and LPR. However, I have had some life changes that has affected my emotions and I feel this is what is happening to me. I went to a family dr yesterday and she was practically trying to run out of the room! Looked at me like I was crazy and told me to start taking Prozac. She refused to give me a try on Xanax! I am getting a second opinion with a specilized doctor, so if a word of advice, see a psychiatrist. Also, I did a search on you tube for "Globus Hystericus" and there was a video explaining how to stretch your muscles in your neck. I have been doing these 2 stretches and I feel significant relief already!!!!! Do a search and check it out, it does help!
