For globus sensation that is caused by post-nasal drip, once the drip goes away, how long can the globus sensation typically last after that?

Varies: Making the assumption that the sensation is actually the result of the pnd, it will depend upon the duration of the PND and the degree of inflammation it has produced.

Neck u/s done 4 globus sensation showed borderline enlarged thyroid, suggests underlying thyroiditis. Is it cause of globus? Is serious? Labs normal

Test results: An important part of tests (ultra-sound, etc) is understandable feedback and recommendations - incl "Don't worry". Ask about anything you'd worry about otherwise. Normal labs are good and suggest it's not serious but thyroiditis might call for check-ups from time to time. Ask. Best! ...Read more

I have globus sensation and wheezing. Pulmonologist said wheezing is psychogenic. ENT said globus psychogenic too. How can anxiety cause a wheeze?

I have globus sensation and wheezing. Pulmonologist said wheezing is psychogenic. ENT said globus psychogenic too. How can anxiety cause a wheeze?

Anxiety is amazing!: Anxiety has been found guilty of nearly every bad thing on the books.
