Although my throat spasms have now stopped I have started to have problems with my larynx.

Mucous seems to be trapped underneath it and collects at night. I wake up with a swollen larynx but no pain. Now my lymph nodes in my neck and the back of my head have swelled.

I also wake up every morning feeling unrefreshed, groggy and depressed.

I am still unable to swallow food.

Surely this can't be GERD?

Yes it can be GERD. When stomach acid goes where it doesn't belong that tissue gets very irritated. especially in the upper throat.

With your nodes swelling I would get into your doctor and have it checked as you may also have some type of infection going on.

Take care,
