Hello Ms. Brief Popo, thank you for consulting us on HealthReplies.com. The condition that you are experiencing is of course only certain with a complete examination of your body, especially on the ears, nose and throat. And indeed this should be done by experts or ENT doctors. We can only estimate a number of things that might occur and cause you to experience conditions, some of which are:
Globus Sensation: sensation that is felt as if there is a lump in the throat but in fact the throat is in normal condition
Esophageal spasm: contractions of the esophagus that are not normal, irregular and too hard.
Muscle disorders such as Myasthenia Gravis
Inflammation: an inflammatory reaction due to an infection process can be due to bacteria or viruses, but usually accompanied by pain.
Because the possibility of these conditions is very diverse, we strongly recommend that you consult your ENT doctor. The doctor will conduct a medical interview, and a complete medical examination, but if it is needed the doctor will carry out other imaging examinations such as photos of Rongten's throat or ultrasound of the neck to look for possibilities. We suggest not to be too afraid to decide on consulting with an expert, because if left unchecked it can affect the quality of your life, and can affect the decrease in appetite which can reduce the intake of nutrients needed by your body everyday. Thus we can convey, hopefully our information answers your questions. thanks.
