For the past few months I have had a "lump in the throat" feeling. Antibiotics have been applied by a pharmacist for assumative-diagnosis "severe sinusitis", with no result. Some days it's bad enough that I can barely swallow and have trouble breathing, accompanied by soreness and all sorts of other kak. It comes and goes though, and I've reached the conclusion it's stress induced.
Perhaps, instead of finding a medical solution, I simply need to refocus. To decide what to let myself get stressed about, and what not to.
This explains it all (language warning, lots of language, you have been thoroughly warned).
