Please help me, I'm going out of my mind. I have been suffering health anxiety for a few months now ever since I started getting heart flutters. I have had a 24 hour ecg & been told I am fine but since then I have been on a rollercoaster of anxiety-related symptoms. I won't go in to all of them as the list is too long but the most recent symptom I have been told is anxiety is a feeling of a lump in my throat, a popping like sound when swallowing (doesn't happen when drinking or eating) but this has been going on for a few weeks, even when I am not feeling particularly anxious. My throat is also dry & does feel sore at times. I have also started belching in my throat like little bubbles in my throat which sometimes clears the lump feeling but it comes back. The tightening sensation in my throat & feeling of a lump comes & goes & does generally get worse at night. However I am aware of it during the day too. I am so scared. I did mention it to my GP but he didn't look at my throat, just said it was globus (feeling of a lump.) When I was there I was actually discussing something else I was worried about & only mentioned it at the end of the appointment. I have been officially diagnosed with health anxiety but please can anyone help to reassure me that may have suffered something similar with severe anxiety. I am also perimenopausal. I had hormone bloods recently to confirm this due to irregular periods. Thank yo
