To whoever can help me,

I am a 18 yr old male. For the Last 4 Months i have been living in ***l. I have not been diagnosised with anything yet partly because iv only been to the doctor 3 times but he does not seem to know what is wrong. It feels like i have a lump in my throat all of the time. This is greatly affecting my speach almost like i have mucous in my throat but clearling my throat and coughing does not relive the symptons. Its not as bad if im by myself or with my family. But when i am with a crowd of people or people i dont know, my speach is effected more which then makes me more nevous which in turn makes it even worse. I also swallow involenterly. I made up a name for it "Dry Swallow" becuase i am swallowing nothing and the sound it makes is extreamly annoying. If it means anything i was diagnosised with acid reflux and a hianal hernial(spelling). But i am certain this is not the problem becuase the nexium does not help at all. I have a feeling it is psychological. Not only is it embassasing it is effecting every aspect of my life. Can Any one help me? i cant live my life like this it is making me extreamly depressed.

  • Maybe it's a goiter? Did you get thyroid blood work? Even at low normal, my doctor put me on thyroid meds to control my goiter (makes me feel like someone is choking me when it goes wild).
