Thanks for your query. Globus hystericus or a feeling of lump in throat is considered as a type of dissociation or conversion disorder that is common in middle aged females. This group of disorders is due to conflicts in the unconscious mind. Relaxation therapy yoga and hypnosis therapy are considered effective in the condition. Drufs have limited role in treating associated anxiety and depression symptoms only. Treatment is a long process for this condition. Wish you good health.
