Hello and welcome to HealingWell,
The medical term for a lump-like sensation in the throat is a “globus” sensation, like you have a world globe stuck in the back of your throat. Often this lump has been there a while and seems to be getting worse. It may be felt every time you swallow or even every time you talk.
What’s typically going on is that there is some type of vocal cord tissue swelling.
One of the most common causes of swelling in this area is acid reflux coming up from the stomach and burning the posterior larynx. The acid reflux effectively causes an acid burn of the throat tissues resulting in swelling that feels like a golf ball is stuck in the throat.
May I suggest that you seek out a GI specialist as there are ways to treat GERD; on of them is surgery. Do seek out further info from your Dr.
I know it is miserable to feel so sick all the time.
