SCARED!!! upcoming laryngoscopy... numbing question

Im getting a fiber optic scope up the nose into the throat on tuesday. Im very anxious about the numbing. I do not do well with numbing in my throat. I once went numb in the throat during a dental numbing....scariest thing ever. I felt like I couldnt breathe. My question is for those who have had it... Does the spray up the nose numb the entire throat, or just the upper part ? Can you describe how it felt so I can be mentally prepared. Can you swallow, can you breathe ok?
Thanks for any replies
Kelly
