lets talk about globus and going off topic?? Not really?


So I have posted about this subject before, but today was just one of those days again. I guess I am going to rant in this post too, so sorry lol. But it's days like these that make doing the simplest task hard.

Anyways, I experience this sensation almost everyday, sometimes part of the day on and off, and for those of you who may not know what it is, its basically just lump like feeling in your throat (not something you can feel on the surface) best way I can describe the feeling is the feeling you have when you have to cry but you hold it in.

I am going to let you guys in on a secret that nobody knows about. I am admitting that I have a phobia.... and it's fearing of becoming physically sick. So when I'm feeling the lump/tight feeling in my throat it's like I panic a little on the inside. But I get through it and do a little neck stretch someone told me about (if you happen to read this, thank you so much for the tip).

Well I don't know what the point of this post was, but I wanted to type away. I like to think of this site as a "public" diary.

I hope you're having a good day/evening

I dealt with globus hystericus for a long time and developed a serious fear of choking. Eating makes the feeling go away. Once I learned to stop fearing eating, it got much better. Now I just deal with vague head pressure all the time and things looking weird. Derealization maybe.

Yes! I find eating makes go away though sometimes it's hard first couple of minutes

I have it all the time. I also have a fear of illness. I understand the fear 100%.
