in the throat
Lump in the throat: You feel as though there is something stuck
in your throat, or that you feel you have a lump in your throat.
You may also feel that you can barely swallow, that there is
a “tightness” in
the throat, or that you have to really force yourself to swallow.
Sometimes this feeling can lead you to think that you may suffocate,
choke, or get something stuck in your throat.
You may also choke, gasp, gag, or have to swallow hard. While
there is no apparent reason why this occurs (there’s nothing
in your throat to cause you to do this), you feel you have to
or are forced to because of some perceived blockage in your throat
