i keep of choking when eating

Ive been having this problem for a few years now but it seems to be getting worse n happening more often.Sometimes when im eating i begin to cough and choke for no apparant reason.The last time this happened was really scary as i couldnt breath at all,i really thought i was going to die,i am now scared to eat on my own incase this happens again.I have asthma which is well controlled with inhalers but no other health problems.Please let me know if any1 else has experienced this and if any1 has any idea what causes this!!!

Re: i keep of choking when eating

Hey there,

I have suffered from something similar to yourself before, infact a few times.
Its normally when I am eating a biscuit or not concentrating when eating.
Without noticing it crumbs can shoot down the back of your throat causing your brain to go into over-drive.
I suffer from panic-attack symptoms also, could it be this?
I think you should maybe visit your GP? Also, if this has happened before maybe its happening over and over because you are constantly thinking about it?
I know for sure that if you sit and tell yourself you have a headache (try it if you like) for a small period of time, you will get a headache. The brain is an amazing thing

Best of Luck.

Esophagus spasms will cause this. Try drinking a hot drink along with your food to help prevent spasms.

I had a similar thing that happened when I ate rice.

I had GERD (acid reflux) and was prescribed Nexium. After a week or so of Nexium, I never had the problem with rice again.
