Just wondering if anyone else has suffered this I know it sounds odd however every day for the past week it has felt like I have a tablet stuck in my throat and when I swallow it's making me want to puke anyone else have this and know what is could possibly be

Hey, I've had something similar. Gp told me it was a globus :

It can be irritating but it never lasted more than a week or so for me.

I think another reason can be excess stomach acid causing irritation in the throat so using indigestion remedies for a few days might help.

If you are worried though, there is no harm and giving your doc a call so they can put your mind at rest. Hope you feel better soon.

I was going to say, possibly a side effect of acid reflux. Have you had much heartburn? Worth a visit to the gp I think smile hope it's better soon x

I was thinking the excess acid thing might try some Gaviscon see if that helps xx

I don't get heartburn but get that lump feeling in my throat. Usually on a night if I'm hungry. I drink milk & it goes

Might be thyroid related, it can become enlarged during pregnancy. Deffo mention to your midwife.

My Dad gets this and has to take a prescribed antacid, he didn't take it last week and the lump came back. Worth a visit to the doctor.

I had a nasty sore throat with dc2, and after he was born, I found out my thyroid had stopped working properly, so perhaps that?

It could be a variety of things so worth letting a doctor look rather than the midwife. It's most likely to be acid reflux related but other possibilities are swollen epiglotis, tonsil stones or a cyst in your throat.
