Im sorry to hear about your situation. Well if bugs have been crawling down into your throat and you have woken up choking that means that they could have tried to get into your windpipe. Now the best solution here is to actually get a physical examination done to start with, this will allow the doctor to listen to your chest and see if there are any signs of an infection in the chest. In addition if needed he can run afew tests including a CBC and if needed a chest xray to see if there is any infection. It is unlikely that a bug actually got into the lungs as the body would repel such as situation and if it got into your stomach it would immediately die in the stomach acid. But this can cause a reaction which can lead to inflammation in the lungs which would cause pain, coughing, shortness of breath and pain which worsens on breathing.
So in short your should see your doctor and get the following tests done ASAP,
1) physical examination
3) Chest Xray
4) EKG (to rule out heart conditions which would be unrelated to the bugs but should be excluded)
5) if needed an endoscopy can be done if the pain persists for more than one to two weeks.
In the meantime i would suggest you start using OTC prilosec and a antihistamine which may help here like claritin but DO see your doctor ASAP.
