Off and on for the past year or so I have been having this sensation of a lump in my throat. I went to see an ENT and he did a scope (went in through the nose and looked down at the throat), I had a CT of the throat, and an Ultrasound of my thryroid and a Upper GI Series (Barium Swallow). There was nothing he could see from the scoping, the CT came back negative, the Barium swallow showed mild to moderate acid reflux, and the ultrasound showed nodules (which the doc said was nothing to worry about). All in all everything that was done did not show any type of mass or obstruction. Even with all these tests done, I still seem to have this lump in my throat feeling. It is not in the middle of my throat but more lower and on the left side above my collar bone area. With this the docs decided to put me on Nexium which helped in the beginning but then the feeling came back, now I am on Ranitidine twice a day with taking Mylanta (for gas).
I am worried and have been called a hypochondriac. I have had anxiety attacks for the past 10 years. It just started all of a sudden and over the years have progressed to hypochondria which brings on the anxiety. Could what I am going through be part of anxiety?
