Globus hystericus

A condition in which there is an feeling of discomfort of a “lump in the throat”.  This lump is felt to interfere with breathing and swallowing, however there is no physical basis for the condition.  In extreme cases, hyperventilation (rapid breathing) and symptoms of a panic attack occur. 

Globus hystericus appears most often in those who are depressed or anxious.  Treatment is by breath-control training, psychotherapy, or reassurance.
