I rarely will even GO to a doctor, I just keep worrying until the stuff resolves on its own. If I DO go (I'll go if it's a SIMPLE check. IE: No invasive testing, no scans, no waiting for results) like say a urine test or him just LOOKING at a mole or something. Then yes, I walk out of there and never think about it again. If the symptoms persist I just say, "Oh that's because ________" and I forget about it
Did stretching the throat work for the globus? Granted it isn't going to fix it for the rest of the day or even for a few hours, but if it helps for a few minutes then you know it's just a spasm.
