    Something in throat by uvula

    Iíve been so good for a long time now but then about two weeks ago I got this feeling like a ball of phlegm or something is stuck by my uvula (as Iíve been calling it the dangly piece in throat lol) itís getting to a point itís ruining my life right now (I have emetiphobia/ phobia of vomiting ) an now and then I feel like the feeling will make me gag.. am just wondering if anyone else gets this and how to get rid of it??
    Itís really stressing me out constantly swallowing to try removing it but still waking with it the next day 😭😭

    Itís such a common anxiety symptom, I think itís called globus.
    Just try to accept itís there but then try and ignore it. Constant swallowing or throat clearing may make it worse. The point is to let it go x

    I find not coughing or trying to swallow makes it easier, Iím also emetophobic. I find a nice cup of hot tea to help quite a lot.
