Christmas 2011 I woke up with the most horrible feeling that I was choking to death. My throat was on fire and it seems like my food was choking me, I could not breath, I panicked and try to shake my husband but he had a few drinks and was fast sleep. I literally jumped out of bed and it seemed to help because I started to get air. The burning pain did not go away for about two hours and I was afraid to get in bed again so I sat down all night. Since that happened I have come in contact with a great number of people who had this problem. What I want to know is, what do you do in an emergency? if you stop breathing you can damage your brain, so is it any way to get someone near to get some air in you until 911 arrives? Please help.
