Common Questions and Answers about Lump in throat globulus


Avatar f tn I have a constant nasal drip,and it feels like I have a lump in my throat. One doctor told me that its called Globulus or something from the drip being constant. The dizzy feeling is what really gets me frustrated.
Avatar n tn He's 35, thin, has Barrett's and hiatal hernia. He is miserable with the lump feeling in his throat but ruled out any visable issues with endo. Did anything work for u?
Avatar n tn I am currently seeing a regular doc and an ENT (I can't see a Gastroenterologist because only certain docs take the type of assistance I am on I have no insurance) . Recently I began having trouble swallowing, like there is a lump in my throat. My regular doctor says "globulus hystericus" from anxiety, however Xanax and Prozac has not made this go away. My ENT says "reflux" and put me on Prevacid which I've been on for two weeks now.
Avatar n tn I'm sure it's that no one has felt able to tell you what it might be or offer advice. It's frustrating to post and not get any responses (I've had that happen to me many times), but sometimes people really just don't know, especially about unusual symptoms. Please don't feel ignored. Also remember this particular forum (ENT) is not an official ask-the-doctor forum where a doctor looks at and answers all questions.
Avatar n tn LPR often doesn't present itself with symptons such as heartburn, nausea and burping; although sometimes it does. The best doctor to diagnose and treat LPR is an ENT, not a GI. To make a long story short, LPR is a fairly recent dx with ENTs and Gastro's at odds as to both diagnosis and treatment, which is not unusually since LPR overlaps their fields of expertise and diagnosis and IMO many GI's don't want to let go of older protocols.
