Over the last three years I have been having a lot of breathing problems. I get episodes where my throat closes up and I can't breath or talk for 20 ro 30 seconds. They happen infrequently. I also get acid reflux, anxiety, have a post nasal drip, sore throat, voice hoarseness and wake up with stuff in my chest. I having coughing episodes in the morning and get a bad gag reflux where my throat closes, but the morning episodes I'm not too concerned about. It's the ones I get when I'm not coughing and my throat just closes up suddenly with no warning. It always comes good, but the episodes are terrifying as I am convinced I am going to die during them.
I have chest xrays and they are all clear and am going for a throat examination soon. Csan anyone please shed any light on this for me?
Has anybody else had this when their throat closes up and they can't talk or breath?
