Fear of choking on food

I also have been having a fear to swallow food. My though is solid food. My fear is that I am going to choke even though I have not choked at all. This all started10 weeks ago when I became sick. Woke up one day very fatigued, sore muscles and joints, tingling and so on. As of today my drs can not figure out what is wrong with me. been through tons of test all come back ok. I have lost 20lbs and feeling weak due to no eating, I really don't have a appettite either. I know I need to eat but the fear stops me. i do have a dr appt on tues and hopefully my dr will led me in the right direction to get over this fear. Any helpful ideas would be appreciated.
