basically since around december i have had a sensation of having a lump in my throat. been to the doctors who said it was down to anxiety and due to stress of exams etc i jus ignored it. its now 9 months later and it is continually getting worse, it feels like the "lump" is bigger and when i take a deep breath i get pain in my chest and back of ma throat where i can feel a lump. also when i swallow there is continually a popping sensation which i have had for as long as i can remember.

seen several doctors and had several blood tests, tests for asthma etc and all say i am fine

any ideas???

where at exactly?
Where exactly is your lump feeling? If it's right where you would put a bow tie on your throat, then it could be a thyroid problem. Or it could be acid reflux. But if it's in the back of your throat, then I don't really know what it could be.

lump in throat
I had that with my hiatal hernia!! They told me it was anxiety!!
Do you have chest pain too? I could not sleep on my left side, my lung and heart felt like it was being pinched. Upper back pain. Felt like a heart attack.
My chiropractor found out I had a hernia and manually pulled my stomach down. Instantly I could breath and the sound of my voice changed too.

acid reflux?
It kinda sounds like acid reflux but I'm not sure. People will usually say that it is reflux too quickly.

You need to get a EGD. This is a very easy test. I had one done last week for the same thing. They look down your throat and give you pictures when it done. I have some redness at the start of my throat from reflux the doctor said. I am waiting for a call to see how the biopsy of this redness turns out.

I was recently diagnosed with GERD and a hiatal hernia and I have the same feeling when I swallow something. My throat is easily irritated.
