Globus sensation: The feeling of something stuck in your throat is called Globus sensation. It may actually be related to something stuck there, or maybe not. Sometimes it is a manifestation of acid reflux disease. Regardless, the new onset of this sensation needs to be evaluated medically, To be sure that there are no blockages in the esophagus. See your doctor. Good luck.
