I suffer from globus hystericus. It makes me gag constantly. I'm getting married next week and I'm worried about it. What can I do stop the feeling?

In brief: What have you tried?

Sometimes, that feeling can be caused by GE reflux, and the usual first step is to try an over the counter H2 blocker like Pepcid or Zantac (ranitidine).
Seeing your doctor ASAP may give you other options if that doesn't help within a day or two. Good Luck!
