In brief: Globus

This is called a globus sensation.
Globus hystericus is the kind which is associated with anxiety. Globus can also be due to laryngopharyngeal reflux(lpr). Acid regurgitated into the throat causes an inflammatory sensation of something stuck, or a fullness in the throat. Consider your diet and observe reflux prcautions. Medication can also help with lpr.
