Do you have diabetes or swallowing difficulty?  Are you eating too much or too fast?  Are you chewing enough?

Acid reflux most likely. The acid causes excess gas, which bloats you and presses against your lungs. I've had a few situations like this.

Me, I take Prevacid in the morning and I keep my meals smaller.
