I have written about this before - it happened when my gma was about to die and I saw her chocking.  but it  happened again this morning at work.  not the extreme but I panicked bigtime. 
has anyone had this happen?  feels like dust is in your throat but you can't clear it for a minute.  when I google it, it says could be a symptom of GERD.  which I have been told I could have and take meds for sometimes.  i'm not good about taking everyday cause i'm not sure I need them.  like some kind of spasm. 
if anyone has any info or experience with this, please let me know.  I hate this feeling.  I have been eating bad lately.  lots of tomatoes and chocolate which is bad for acid reflux.  I just don't get the common reflux feeling much at all which is why i'm not convinced I have it.  but I do get a lot of the drainage down my throat even when allergies aren't bad. 
this feeling makes me feel awful though.  thank goodness it doesn't happen much but I have to carry water with me all the time because of my fear of it. 
I had an apt with another gastro dr on Friday but had to reschedule for another month because of a party at work.  ugh  I've never  had any tests to confirm a diagnosis.  I don't want the invasive scope.  I am doing to a new doc cause last doc wouldn't do any other tests.

Sounds like possible spasm or LPR. The upper scope really isn't bad at all. With the sedation I never remember it at all. It only takes about 10 to15 minutes to do also. It's a very good test to have done.

Take care,
