Reflux?: Based on the limited history I would start to wonder about acid reflux causing a spasming of your voice box (laryngospasm). This caused a stress response leading to the other symptoms. If this continues and becomes more frequent see your MD to help you sort it out. Good luck! https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gastroesophageal_reflux_disease
