    Feeling of something caught in chest

    Hi for just over a week I've had this feeling in chest almost as if there is phlemgh there but absolutely nothing to cough up. Just wondering whether this could be an anxiety symptom?

    When I had that feeling, it was acid reflux.

    I had exactly the same thing last week - as you say feeling like there was phlegm stuck in my windpipe and constantly clearing my throat and trying to cough it up for a couple days. Like AntsyVee I put it down to acid reflux (which I suffer from when I'm stressed) churned up by anxiety. When I had calmed down a bit the sensation went away.

    Hard not to get anxious in the current nonsensical climate of fear. Silent reflux can also sneak up on you and whilst you don't experience the burning it is nevertheless irritating your oesophagus and can make you cough. If you suffer from hayfever too it can make you feel 'congested' and produce phlegm.
