Afraid to eat solid food

My daughter stopped eating solid food four days ago. We took her to the doctor and she was examined, but everything was fine. It started 2 weeks ago when she thought she was choking, since then she would chew and eat most of her food, but occasionally she would start crying and spit it out. Now she won't eat any solid food. When she tries, it is a small amount and she will chew and start crying and spit it out. She tells me there is something in her throat and complains of an upset stomach. I am giving her pediasure, yogurt mixed with milk, and broths. What can I do? What should I give her until this passes, if it does?
