Hi,

could you provide more information on what you mean by throat lump if possible??

What do you think is causing your stress??
Is it your homelife, relationship problems, or stress from work??

You could try regular exercise, healthy eating, listening to relaxing music, you could try focusing on one thing in your life and once you've suceeded you could move onto the next thing. I think there are many factors, which can help in decreasing stress levels, but firsty I think you should really try and identify the cause of your stress, so that you know which areas in your life you would like to improve, and hence hopefully reducing your stress levels.

I have had the lump in the throat off and on for a very long time and I freaked out about it the first time it happened. I thought I had throat cancer or something. Then I went to the doctor for it and it actually has a name I believe the spelling is "globus humulous" it's when the globus, a part of the back of your throat spasms due to stress. It's like the lump you get right before you start to cry or are fighting back crying. It's nothing to worry about you can look it up on google cuz this is something that won't freak you out or anything.

Take care,
amy

Mine has happen to me about a years ago and at first I even felt that my mouth's taste has change and my mouth mostly became could and also I don't know are those have anything to do with throat lump or not??? But i'm so worry about myself and i'm trying to make myself busy with something and go out for shopping or stuff like that and I hope i'll be better in the near future. But I have a question for you , have you gotten any kinds of medication to treat it or it healed by itself and how long did it take . I'll be appreciated if you can provide me with this information.

I have found that only by reducing stress did it go away. Don't get me wrong, I still get it but also with xanax or an anti-anxiety drug it went away for periods of time. The biggest thing is I have also noticed when I eat I don't feel the lump. Let me know if while eating it doesn't seem to be there.
