Approximay eight months later I developed globus, which was the first significant symptom suggesting I had developed anxiety (beyond my life-long social anxiety), which was confirmed shortly after when I was informed my mother had suffered a non-fatal heart-attack around October last year and I responded with a fit of uncontrollable retching.
