The sensation can range from mild to severe and may be accompanied while other symptoms such as sore throat, difficult swallowing, coughing, hoarseness or a feeling of choking.
There can be many causes for globus sensation. One of the causes is tension in the neck and throat area. You can do something about it yourself by eating or drinking you swallow yawning is also helpful to reduce the tension. With the swallow and yawning the larynx will be lowered, this will relax the muscles that produce globus sensation.
