For the longest time, I had a symptom of something stuck in my throat
, along with severe irritation and pain at the base of my throat
under the adams apple
. I was checked for thyroid disease and diagnosed by one doc,with globus hysterias, which is anxiety, causing a feeling of a lump in your throat. After cat scans which showed nothing and other tests, I finally went to a gastroenterologist. I have since had quite a few endoscopies and been diagnosed with GERD and Barretts Esophagus.
