In brief: Globus sensation?

Do you experience the feeling of a ball or lump in the back of your throat that you have to swallow past? If so, this is "globus.
" alternatively, you may have laryngo-esophageal reflux without heartburn. Sometimes, the actual swallowing mechanism may be impaired due to "spasms" or dysmotility. A gastroenterologist is your next point for evaluation.
