I am a 24 year old female who is pretty healthy. For about a week now I have had a lump in the throat sensation. I definitely suffer from anxiety. I have never been diagnosed but I know I have it. This 'lump sensation' has gone from moving around and feeling big to feeling reasonably small and only on one side. I recently had a cold with coughing, running nose, coughing up phelgm. I've noticed the past couple days I'll have a slight crackle in my right ear, and it kind of effects the lump. My worry (surprise!) is that it is not anxiety. Part of my anxiety is a fear of health problems and of going to the doctor. Any suggestions as to what it could be, or maybe it is still anxiety?
