Brief Answer:
Globus hystericus

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Are you sure that there is no organic problem in the throat? Is that ruled out by a doctor? If yes then you are mostly anxious and have a lot of stress undergoing. In such a case you should have fast fixes for that situation. Stress and anxiety have profound effect on this feeling.

I have couple of tips for you if you have the lump in throat feel (globus hystericus)
1) Drink water- Hydration relieves you.
2) Jogging - Quick Jog for at least two miles can keep you stress out of way.
3) Proton pump inhibitors like PRILOSEC can help
4) You can meet a ND (naturopathic doctor) who can advise you some non dangerous herbs

Finally if there is no organic disorder a Psychologist can help you heal with behavioural therapy.

Hope this is helpful.
