This is Dr. David
the burping can be a sign of acid reflux or stomach acid producing excessive stomach acid.
also excessive anxiety can cause a lump in your throat as well
are you on medications to help calm down your anxiety?
nope, its never been an issue before
burping could also be a sign of reduced stomach acid and poor digestion
I think this lump in your throat is from anxiety
if are you getting anxiety attacks you need some medications to treat anxiety
but the anxiety only began after the lump feeling came into play
well, it would be more likely that the anxiety is causing the lump in your throat.
you can see an ENT doctor and get a throat scope procedure, but I bet it will look normal.
if anxiety caused the "lump feeling" would it be central or would it appear rather random
it could be anywhere in your throat.
yes, i am sure it would as my doc told me he couldnt see anything but said it could be tonsiilittis forming
and it could just come and go as it pleases, regardless of the mood I am in ?
yes, the lump in your throat can come and go depending on your anxiety.
worse anxiety can cause a lump feeling in your throat.
it doesnt quite ring true for me, I am not aware of being anxious about anything that would have produced the lump sensation in the first place. I have become anxious because of this feeling
well, if your doctor thinks it is tonsilitis, then you might benefit from a course of antibiotics.
antibiotics would treat tonsilitis.
i have actually tried to do some exercises, ie improve heart rate to get the blood and lymph moving around, and found the lump feeling to be increased, and the following day I feel so completely washed out. But it has not become tonsilitis I never actually had a sore throat or cold like symptoms, only now well the last two weeks am I aware of a post nasal drip
post nasal drip and allergies can cause a lump in your throat as well
a nasal steroid spray and allergy medications can help decrease post nasal drip
and that can help as well.
how can they cause a lump sensation?
by stopping or decreasing post nasal drip
which can irritate your throat.
but that doesnt exactly get to the root cause of the problem, its just masking the origin I would need to work out what is causing a post nasal drip. if they irritate the throat, how does that cause the lump to be there, then not, swiftly in time?
most likely allergies are causing your post nasal drip.
or mold or dust in your house
could that also lead to dizzy spells, nothing major just a quick spin in my head
that is most likely the anxiety causing dizzy spells
hmm - in someways that could make some senze but again I have never had allergies as such
it is hard to think clearly when you have excessive anxiety.
sorry this keeps leading me to more and more questions
it is still important for you to talk to your doctor about your anxiety.
and getting your anxiety and panic attacks treated to help calm this down.
or else you keep running in circles with your thinking.
:-) but the anxiety is caused by the lump sensations
I think you have that the wrong way around.
yes, indeed I do run round in circles right now, but I wish i know what I was anxious about to cause the lump, if you want me to turn it about. I was a happy go lucky person, quite peacefully and happily going about my business, when i have a lump sensation in my throat
I think you have an anxiety disorder which causes you to be anxious
i do go to the doctor as its just before xmas and we know how things shut down for at least a week, he suggests tonsillitis, I use the horrble stuff prescribed, and the lump sensation is still there
you don't need a reason to be anxious when you have an anxiety disorder.
interesting, and this anxiety disorder just appears out of no where?
I would talk to your doctor about medications to decrease anxiety
I have to run out for now.
