Problem happens after I clear my throat a lot, I do feel like I'm choking when I try to sleep and my body wants to swallow. No coughing. A clicking on the left side of my throat when swallowing. No drugs
Neurologist: Sumanth Amperayani, Board Certified MD replied 4 months ago

Hi...I understand your concern. I think that the problem is happening because of excessive throat clearing, the posterior wall of the pharynx is becoming dry and getting irritated. This is the reason why you are unable to swallow well and getting choking sensation please. I do not think this is a neurological issue. I inquired about the symptoms because some neurological problems can present like this.

The best way out is -

1. Have sips of water frequently.

2. warm salt water gargling thrice a day.

3. Avoid excessive clearing of throat.

4. Avoid having spicy food and junk food please.
