I have an odd sensation between my breasts/center of my chest. Almost as if there is something in there. Lump in throat also. Gas? Anxiety?

I have an odd sensation between my breasts/center of my chest. Almost as if there is something in there.  Lump in throat also.  Gas? Anxiety?

Could be either, or: Even reflux esophagitis. I suggest seeing your family physician to begin workup. Also if you have ongoing anxiety, psychotherapy is a powerful part of treatment -- as in not relying on the zoloft (sertraline) alone. Lump in throat is common in anxiety as well, but people have been known to have both anxiety and reflux. ...Read more

See your Dr.: If no worrisome family or personal history, could be thyroid issue, but need exam and testing to be sure is not heart-related, or GI source which would need different treatment. If symptoms worsen, go to er for evaluation asap. ...Read more

If heart is: healthy would encourage you to see your primary care doctor for a more thorough assessment to check for any other medical causes of these symptoms. If that workup is also negative, would encourage you to see a psychiatrist or psychologist for help with your anxiety. ...Read more

GI problem seem cause my sore throat, throat clearing, feeling of lump in throat, difficulty breathing & swallow. Can it cause severe chest pain too?

GI problem seem cause my sore throat, throat clearing, feeling of lump in throat, difficulty breathing & swallow. Can it cause severe chest pain too?

Yes, reflux can: Cause significant chest pain. In fact that is the origin of the term heartburn. On the other hand, not all chest pain in people with GERD is GI in origin. If in doubt, go to ER or an urgent care, if this is unlike anything you've experienced before and is accompanied by shortness of breath, cardiac issues need to be checked for and ruled out. ...Read more

Sore gland on left side of neck. Feels swollen compared to right side. Painful when burp, feels like lump in throat on that side.. Why could this be?

Monitoring Centers: Lymphatic system absorbs/carries things too big to go into the arteries/veins like bacteria eaten by white cells and digested food. Lymph nodes "taste" the lymph for anything bad like bacteria/viruses/cancers, etc. When it detects a problem, it alerts the immune system and your body reacts. They enlarge in response to the inflammation they create when they react. They shrink when all is well. ...Read more
