what is chronic gagging symptom of?

Gagging: Chronic gagging is due to a hypersensitivity on the pharynx. You could try to anesthetize the area to stop the feedback loop of feeling like there is something there. You can try viscous lidocaine. Your doctor can write for it. It is 2% solution. If this does not work you can try gabapentin. You will need a prescription for this and a doctor's visit. Good luck. Feel better.
