My doc is prescribing Valium for me to get rid of the feeling of a lump in my throat. I was just wondering how well it would work.
That lump in your throat isn’t about muscles – it’s about anxiety. I used to get that sort of thing all the time and the docs prescribed valium for me too. It works pretty well at helping alleviate your stress. Be sure to avoid taking it during the day until you become more accustomed to it, and definitely don’t drive until you’re completely comfortable with it. Part of what makes us good drivers is our ability to react to stressful situations (i.e. oncoming traffic, accidents, stupid pedestrians), so be particularly cautious about driving.
