Fear of Choking

by Lindsay

I have these strange fear of choking that comes and goes. It all started a few months ago when I had an allergic reaction to Sudafed PE and my throat closed shut, and I was unable to breathe.

Well ever since that incident, I'm terrified so small objects that I can choke on. Such as..food, rock, staples, q-tips, almost anything that I can fit in my mouth.

I'm scared all the time and constantly feel like I'm choking, even when I know I'm not. I suffer from severe panic attacks because of this. I'm going to the doctor this week to get on medication, but I don't want to alywaus depend on medicine to make me feel better.

Has anyone else experienced this?
