If it happens with different kinds of foods, it's likely to be just swallowing wrong. If it's always a certain kind of food, you might want to inquire about
allergies or just try taking a Benadryl at meal time. I've got allergies on the brain right now, since mine have gone haywire, so please take my thoughts with a grain of salt, and see your doctor if you're having real concerns for your health. I don't want to stir up your or anyone else's health anxiety with my own.
That choking feeling is one of the most terrifying triggers for anxiety, at least for me. But I try to tell myself that I've never choked shut, I'm always still breathing, and in my case, I have meds on hand to help me if I really get into trouble.
