What are the causes of chronic laryngitis and choking sensation in throat.?

Most likely reflux

Pharynx
Most likely cause is acid reflux even if there is no heartburn. Only 1/3 of people with reflux have heartburn. Consider avoiding caffeine, alcohol, acidic or spicy foods, smoking, eating less than 4 hrs before sleep, sleeping with the the head higher than the heart, and antacids. Could also be throat tumor so consider ENT evaluation if symptoms present longer then 2-3 weeks

After 22hrs of not eating, I keep feeling this choking sensation in my throat and my ears feel heavy. What is this?

Time to see Dr

It 'might' be tonsil or uvula enlargement, but cannot say via Internet, and is a serious issue, so should be seen, likely at an Urgent Care as is holiday weekend, to be sure do not need sent to ER or inpatient for care.

She is draining viscous mucous down her throat. She may need antibiotics. Warm moist air will help (Netty pot, hot shower, etc). Avoid antihistimines. If continues, see your doctor. Don't want to develop pneumonia!

Is there a difference between stress-related chest/ arm discomfort and exercise-related chest heaviness and a choking sensation in the throat?

Hard to tell

Chest
Stress can mimic cardiac symptoms. If your experiencing them related to exertion I would be more concerned about heart related issues. Either way chest pain needs to be taken seriously. Please get it checked ASAP.

Hello.

Hello. I can't diagnose your condition. But your description makes me wonder about a possible peritonsilar abcess. I know you are concerned by the cost of an Emergency Room. However, if this is a peritonsilar abcess it could be life threatening.

I ve had a choking sensation most days the past week with a gravely voice.Dr said my airway is open and my larynx and vocal cordes were not swollen. He thought it was acid reflux so I ve been taking the medication he prescribed, not eating 2 hrs before be

Acid reflux vs drip

Reflux and post-nasal drainage can both cause symptoms like you mention. It can take quite a while for the drainage due to reflux to improve: up to three months in some cases. Mucinex can also help the gravelly voice: you can take up to 1200 mg twice a day. It helps by thinning the secretions and making them seem like saliva. We swallow lots of that each day anyway .
