Are you by chance takign abilify? It can cause terrible problems with swallowing.
Hi, its called Globus hystericus:
i get all those symptoms a lot to, its terrible, i get and get a big blanket around myself, drink some calming tea, and i calm down pretty fast, it took me a long time to figure that out, try it, i used to sit there shaking for like 30 or 40 minits it was terrible but it happens now i dont feel so afraid, its just something that is caused by anxiety and will go away after some time of relaxing...
I used to think I was the only one who had this crazy symptom, but there seems to be a bunch of us out there. those seconds with the throat closed, trying to swallow seem to take FOREVOR sometimes. I actually get this most every night. I know that if I tough it out it eventally goes away and I manage to drift off to sleep, but sometimes, if it is too exhausting, I will take a xanax, which usually stops it. I have tried many herbal sleep aids, but none have gotten me past this...though there are still others I have not tried such as Allteril...I know how terrifying this is, but it helps to know it ALWAYS goes away eventally, and it can't actually hurt you..so hang in there:)
