Dear XXXXXXX
First, I need to admit that this is not something usual.
There is no need to panic, just come down, and write me about it.
The most important thing to do is to find is there any organic cause of your symptoms. Or it is caused by anxiety. I never underestimate patient’s symptoms but there is easy way to find out are you seriously ill or you just think you are.
Your blood and lung tests can show it. Also, if ativan helps, then this is psychogenic disease, no offense.
Organic causes can be lung disorders( pneumonia, inflammation) or esophageal and stomach disorders.
So, do lung X-ray, gastroscopy and lung tests.Drink lot of water, lie with your upper body elevated. If nothing is found on these tests then just be calm, you won’t choke, it is impossible to choke on own saliva! And just don’t be so negative, and don’t even think of suicide etc.
If I show you what real disease is, then you wouldn’t be so pessimistic...
Hope I have answered your query. If you have any further questions, I will be happy to help.
