Something stuck in throat? only on right side around tonsil area. no fever or illness. could this be globus sensation? i do feel a bit of anxiety/stre

Something stuck in throat? only on right side around tonsil area. no fever or illness. could this be globus sensation? i do feel a bit of anxiety/stre

Could be.: Globus sensation is usually not felt on only one side of the neck. As long as you are able to swallow and breathe easily, then you can see if this goes away on its own. If it worsens, or if it persists longer than a day or two, then I would see your doctor. You might consider taking a trial of antacids, since globus sensation can be worsened by gastroesophageal reflux. Good luck. ...Read more

I hv chronic tonsilitis&now notice orange 'ulcers'@side&back of throat, few neck nodes&odd sensation of not being able2breath ?anxiety/globus ?other

Possible infection: Hello, If the ulcers are painful, circular in shape with a red border they may indicate a viral infection. If they are on the tonsils themselves this will cause the tonsils to swell and give you a sensation of globus or fullness.

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
