Is Gerd related to Globus Pharyngeus ? I have been diagnosed by endoscopy and have been confirmed that I have Gerd. I have now, I think recovered from that, but just recently, a month ago, I started to have a lump in the throat feeling. I woke up every morning having a very sour taste in my mouth and I feel that there is an object stuck on my throat. There is a bit of feeling of a heartburn also. I have been not keeping my weight down and have not really been controlling my diet and I have not been taking my medication regularly as instructed by my doctor.
My night cough has gone, but this lump in the throat feeling is there and I can feel it even though I am not swallowing. I have gone back to the doctor and he told me I have Globus Pharyngeus. I have read in many articles on the internet that this will normally takes something like 6 months or more to heal. Many of the articles states that little is known about Globus Pharyngeus. Is this really TRUE ??? Please can someone tell me.
Is this true ? Please HELP. Do people who have GERD, can also have Globus Pharyngeus if they are not carefull ?
How is the best to treat Globus Pharyngeus ? I have already been taking the medication for this but does really seem to work. Please help as I think I am really beginning to go NUTS. Anyway how can I confirm what I have now is really "Globus Pharyngeus" ? PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE HELP ME. PLEASE SOMEBODY ADVISE ME ON THIS.
I have no fever, no rashes on my body, no body ache, no headache, no enlarge lymph node on my body, no night sweatting when I sleep, but I do from time to time have nose drip. My apeatite is ok but I am under alot of stress from this.
I have been to other medical clinic, and the doctor remark was Just relax, nothing to worry about. But How can I do that if I really do not know what is going on ???
