Been choking on saliva, have blockage. What is wrong?

For a few weeks I ve been having problems with choking on my own saliva . It will be randomly throughout the day and recently while I m asleep. I literally wake up choking. I m lucky to even force myself to inhale just to cough because it s one of those silent chokes where I literally can t get any air in. Like a blockage. And it really hurts my chest . What could this be?
