.Please help anyone.
This use to happen only at night, I would wake up coughing and choking. Its started during the day now and is terrible, especially when I am out. I feel a sharp stabbing pain in the back of my throat and start coughing and my eyes start watering and I have to swallow swallow swallow, and my nose runs. I can't do anything else at that moment.

I don't have a cough otherwise or a blocked nose, or allergies.
I have to wait two weeks before I can get into my doctors.

This has been going on for about a year, I thought it was sinus but have been treated for that and still it happens.

Anyone have any ideas,I would be greatful for some feedback.

.I have exactly the same symptoms in addition to some other problems. I have had two PH tests that showed severe gastric reflux, even though I rarely have heartburn. Reflux can cause a hoarse voice, coughing and choking.
