As you have history of anxiety and such feeling of Lump is called Globus Hystericus , which is not actually a feeling of Lump but this is because of anxiety and often underlying GERD could be the reason .

So you should not worry about it , good Anti anxiety medication will help you to overcome this issue .

Meanwhile I will suggest you to have Cap Omeprazole 20 mg at bed time for 4 weeks .

You will feel tremendous response .

Good luck .
