The common human response is "globus response". Globus is equally found in men and women. Most of the people are likely to experience globus in some or the other time of their lives. However, no major consequences have been reported. Despite anecdotal reports and observations, globus is not associated with other gastrointestinal disorders such as irritable bowel syndrome or heartburn. Reported associations with headache or other conditions likely result from referral bias that is, observations of patients sent to specialists. Globus, like tears, may express an emotion.
