User :   Hi there, I seem to feel like I have a lump in my throat. Everytime I swallow it feels slightly mucusy and feels like it gets lodged in my throat. I cough to try and move it, but nothing happens. I recently went to the doc to ask about my chest, as my breathing was a bit weird, and he gave me betablockers to calm my heart rate.
I am just worrying about this now! I am scared its a lump or something.. but I feel no pain whatsoeverIt probably has nothing to do with it, but I am 3 weeks late (2 negative hp
