For the past several days I get this weird feeling is like something is in the back of my throat. And it makes me Gag reflex. Its scaring the crap outta me. Does anyone know what this might be.

Welcome to HealingWell.  You may have the following so please do check in with your Dr.  This lump in the throat sensation (also known as globus pharyngeus or hystericus), is a common complaint that many patients have when presenting to their physician.
The sensation is more pronounced when swallowing and may even interfere somewhat with swallowing whether it be solids or liquids. Often, a person may feel compelled to swallow a second or third time to make sure things get down. The lump itself is described to be roughly the size of a golf ball or as small as a vitamin pill and is precisely located in the middle of the neck right above the sternum and below the Adam's Apple.
