Dreamt I Was Choking...

Last night I dreamt that a piece of food was logged in my throat and I was choking. I woke up and still felt the same way, yet seconds later I realized it was just a dream and feel asleep. Has this happened to anyone? I've never experienced this before. However, lately I've choked on some meat from time to time. Very scary experience. Could there be a relation?

Yes there could be a connection to what happened and your dream. A lot of times what I think about or do during the day gets into my dreams. I think this is probably perfectly normal.

Re: Dreamt I Was Choking...

i often dream about choking or not being able to breath for whatever reason my brain is thinkin up at the moment and i wake up with the same sensation until i calm myself down and breathe deep for a few minutes.... this is because of sleep apnea (condition where you stop breathing while sleeping due to the collapse of the soft palate tissue in your airway) that i do this and as i dream i am chokin or whatever it is the point where my throat is closed and my body cant get air.... strange huh? .... so there are people out there who know how scary dreaming things like this are... good luck

Yes I've heard of that. Strange, sleep apnea from what I've read, affects older people and those who snore quite a bit. Well I havn't experienced it since....
