Hi all am having a horrid bad patch. Started having a problem with swallowing certain foods about a month ago,kept getting caught in my throat now have a tonne of catarrh in the back of my throat it's like a constant lump,am coughing up a bit of phlem(sorry) but just cannot shift it. Have tried several over the counter remedies but not worked. Get very nervous of taking my meds at night(have fibromyalgia) as its taking me ages to get the tablets down. So scared of choking. I also suffer from bad panic attacks although I have been getting tougher with them which defo makes a difference. Just spoke to my doctor and I could hear in her voice she thinks this is down to anxiety. But how can anxiety cause all the catarrh. I spoke to a chemist this morning and he was pretty sure I have an infection. I must admit I do panic when I get a new symptom and I've never had anything like this before,it's horrible! Have an appt with the nurse tomorrow so she can look at my throat and then we will see!
Has anyone else had anything like this?
