Re: swollen glands under chin , globus and hoarseness

Well, with very similar symptoms as most of you, my mind is in the throes of fighting off all the worst case scenarios it can fathom... and google'ing doesn't help (actually, its possibly the worst thing a worry-wort like me could do).

Right now, with a "sensation" in my throat for the last 6 weeks, I've been prescribed Famotidine (Pepcid?) for possible GERD, and Prednisolone (?) for some swollen sinuses. Its been 5 days and [thankfully] I feel marginally better. But those five days and nights were absolutely brutal on my psyche.

Still, I'm pressing my Doctor for a scoping with an ENT... and bracing myself for a finding/bad news.

Re: swollen glands under chin , globus and hoarseness

Try not to worry, it is such a common symptom of anxiety , if you just look over previous threads on this issue you will see. I have had a funny throat thing going on since June , it comes and goes. I have to clear my throat a lot and get hoarse like i have been shouting only i haven't. Dr says it is anxiety, i, like a previous poster have a thyroid problem so it could be this causing the discomfort but who knows. It is very annoying i agree but i am sure it is nothing sinister - please try to believe that - have faith in yourself and in your life to be well - life doesn't always have to turn out bad.

Hi Elitest...I was wondering how you are doing?

I also have had a lump in the throat sensation for 3 months now...I've had 8 visits do the Doc and am facing ENT next Tuesday. I have had the feeling of a lump in the throat (smooth), the feeling of an object stuck in throat (not smooth), hoarsness (well..more rough sounding voice) and the occasional headache and referred pain around my neck/jaw etc. I should point out that like you, my symptoms are not there on a morning but creep in when I get out of bed, start talking, eating, drinking etc. The doctor says I have either reflux or globus (or maybe both) but alas the Lansaprazole doesn't seem to be doing much (not that I was aware of any heartburn but I know that doesn't always make itself known)

I'm in a right panic but wondered whether these sound familiar to you or anyone???? Does anyone have any idea what Globus is all about...does it link up with Reflux? What is the referred pain/headaches? How long might all this last? I've had this for 3 months...been on Lasaprazole for 2 months and I don't feel much further forward.

Can anyone help me?

Re: swollen glands under chin , globus and hoarseness

Hi I have all of this - started a week ago :( been coming off my meds for about 6 months, just reduced the dose then had a bout of illness, two lots of sinusitis and a cough that would not leave. Last week, felt a bit anxious/stressed, throat started to get sore, constricted and lump in throat returned. I now wake up, throat OK, no lump, as day progresses and i talk my throat gets sore, my ears aches, my neck aches, feel like i need to clear my throat as it is clogged up. When i eat and drink feels fine, when I don't think about it seems fine.
Problem is I am singer in band, we should have been recording last week and i need to record vocals and sing live - i don't have control of voice - panic - vicious circle. You are not alone and neither am I. I am now increasing my dose of citalopram and may even have to resort to some diazepam to help relax the muscles initially.
