I was wondering if muscous drainage in thr throat can cause one to gag or close to it?
The first time I noticed this was with a bad cold in December--got home from beibg ut and was trytign to talk to my sister and ecventually had to stop because I kept gettig thos tight swallowinfg really close to gagging issues.
Never seemed to come up as severly againb till I caight another bad cold, just late last month. Still having cough and nasal drip--though caough is lessened. But if I open my mouth I can usually see mucous strings clinging to my tonsils.
It is been especially bad when I try to talk--especially if its somehting I am nervous or upset about. I get really close to gagging, or small gags, but yesterday was a HUGE gag, like a dry heave. Everyhing I could do not to "get sick"
Which leads me to, my tummy has been quite bloated and upset as of late too--though I have had other issues with it. Wondering if the snot is not doing this too?
Please any answer /thoughts would be most appreciated!
That's funny that I just read this because the exact same thing is happening to me today! I even just posted a question about it. But this describes it better than I did in my question. It's defnitely a 'gagging' feeling. I also currently have a bad cold, so that might be part of it. This, however, has been happening since childhood, whether or not I have a cold. I've never been able to figure out what's going on, though. I've never seen a doctor about it. Let me know if you find anything out!
