Welcome to HCM

Feeling of swallowing sensation and electric shock like sensation before sleep can occur due to anxiety disorder or some other condition like B12 deficiency, thyroid abnormality etc. Most likely such symptoms occur due to anxiety. As per my opinion consult a psychiatrist for expert opinion and also try relaxation exercises like Breathing Exercises, Muscle Relaxation Exercises. Get your B12 and thyroid hormone levels checked to rule out these conditions.
