Re: post nasal drip causing gagging and choking... HELP!
It is now close to 4 weeks since my symptoms started. The symptoms are as follows: A choking sensation, a feeling that there is a lump in my throat that starts my caughing. The Caughing starts the choking feeling or the burps. The burping becomes uncontrollable and then there is gasping for air. It is like you can not get any air or breaths. It is not a fun feeling at all. Generally the symptoms occur when lying in bed.. when I turn on my side or when just rising from the bed. Sometimes the symptoms occur when sitting or leaning back in a chair.
The above is what I discussed with a specialist in an Otolaryngology group. After explaining to him the symptoms he said it sounded very much like REFLUX. Which is Acid Reflux. So now I am going to start on some prevacid to see if it does the trick. I hope so.
