I have had Globus sensation since I was diagnosed with PMR 13 months ago.It gets so bad at times that I can hardly sleep as I wake up choking. It keeps me from falling asleep, too. I try to do the body scan meditation , start at top of my head and when I get to my throat , I get stuck as I cant cough up the lump or swallow.😰 i have done a treatment cycle with a ppi as the ENT I saw inicially for globus sensation and post nasal drip said it was due to acid reflux but it didn't help at all.
I'm wondering if it has any connection to Prednisone or GCA? For the last couple of months, I've had a very tender spot on my right temple and headaches that I wake up with, that come and go. These symptoms are not nearly enough to warrant going to the ER, they'd probably send me home and tell me I'm just being paranoid, but if this globus thing is related, it's got worse lately, maybe I'd be taken more seriously.
I did get my foot checked out, they x rayed and found no fractures ..they told me it could be nerve pain radiated from my lower back..or piriformis syndrome. Guess I should have written this last bit on my original thread on the subject.
