If you aspirate a small amount of liquid it may cause your vocal cords to lock shut ...you may not be able to swallow or move air either if this is what is occurring ..

I don't like that you have lost 12 pounds so quickly
I think that this would be reason to have your symptoms checked into more throughly ..
I would recommend That you see An ENT specialist and have a barium swallow study to more carefully check your swallowing coordination and check throat structures
I see ...condsidering what you have told me I would suggest a second opinion per ENT ...I'm concerned as to the weight loss for one ..
I think a probable obstacle is that your throat sensation description is atypical ...not crystal clear at all just based on your description...
You warrant a good thorough evaluation I think however ...
I can't see blaming anxiety although that can account for many range of symptoms ..that is true...
