Very odd neck symptom...what on earth is it????

...I havnt had this for a long time BUT I used to get it quite a lot.

T'was only when I was stressed and it felt like someone was squeezing the soft part of the front of my neck, like the back of a hand gently pressing it in.

The GP at the time said it was called 'Glaxo Hystericullus' or similar!

Thyroid symptom?????

Globus hystericus

Often regarded as being all in the mind or caused by anxiety. Considering how many people mention swallowing here - from goitre, from nodules, from being hypo or hyper, - this is a very real issue with very definite causes.



Thanks Rod!
