me. I do this too sometimes. it feels like a ball in my throat and it chokes me and then it will pass--but sometimes takes a while

I don't know what it might be and I would suggest you talk to your doctor about it. May be that you are not producing enough saliva, but I'm not an MD and you really do need the opinion of your PCP.#next_pages_container { width: 5px; hight: 5px; position: absolute; top: -100px; left: -100px; z-index: 2147483647 !important; }

may be acid reflux, it caues more than people know. You start w/burning throat. Then the mac truck on you're chest. Then I laid down one night my stomach felt torched. Every tiny spot that can be considered my back was in unbearable pain, felt like forever. Then I'd have my head in the trash can. This happened a few times a month but w/out the burning. Then I had serious pain under the left rib, then the right. Dr discussed it w/other drs but they had no clue. When the right side started it came with the heartburn pain so I told the dr it was heartburn. If you start feeling bloated after a little food or drink, thats a non emptying stomach. Get to the dr right away or you get where you can't eat or expel anything. I got it from depression etc. We have the same chemicals in our stomach as our brain. Thats where the saying a gut feeling came from. So my stomach is a total mess. Sometimes I start to choke and I'm not even eating or drinking. It's very werid.
