The sensation of feeling that there is always something in your throat is known to doctors as a globus sensation, which is short for globus hystericus. It was originally called globus hystericus because pregnant women would so often complain about this finding (hystericus referring to the uterus). It was ultimately determined that many pregnant women were having this sensation due, in part, to the pressure on their stomachs and the relaxation of their esophageal sphincters which caused increased gastric reflux disease. This constant bathing of the throat in stomach acid leads to the uncomfortable sensation of something being present in the back of the throat. That being said, most people today will have the globus sensation due to a variety of reasons, not just stomach acid. If your symptoms have been present for some time, then you need to see a doctor
to determine what the cause may be. An ear-nose and throat surgeon
(AKA, otolaryngologist-head and neck surgeon) will be able to best evaluate you and determine what is contributing to your symptoms. Additionally, he or she will be able to look closely at the back your throat and your voice box to make sure there is nothing serious. Please seek your doctor.
