From Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) the obstruction in the throat is called Plum Pit Qi, which is associated with Qi stagnation (particularly Liver Qi).
Emotions such as stress, sadness or frustration due to overwork or family pressure can cause that feeling of lump in the throat.
“It is called Plim Pit Qi because the liver meridian passes through the throat and from an emotional point of view the liver is the organ of frustration, anger and stress,” says Dr. Mariam Tovar.
Dr. Tovar recommends not self-diagnosing or self-medicating with antibiotics, but attending a medical consultation.
