Home Remedies For Choking Feeling
I sometimes wake up because of choking feeling and I cough to return to normal. What is the cause of this?
Post nasal drip: This is most likely a post nasal drip. When youlie down all the mucous from your nose drains into your throat. When there is too much, it makes you choke on it to clear it. Try taking loratidine or certrizine before bed.
Reflux: Gastric reflux can result in the sensation of choking or shortness of breath or the sensation of "heart burn" if it is continuous it may be more severe. Life style changes like stopping smoking, stopping alcohol, stopping caffeine may help. I would suggest seeing your physician, you may need to have an egd - a scope to see what the problem is.
"choking" when runs: Do you feel short of breath or wheeze when you run? Do the symptoms occur with any kind of vigorous exercise? Do they occur more frequently in cooler times of the year? Any history of asthma? May have exercise-/cold- induced asthma: airways tighten up & breathing is more difficult; may wheeze. See fp for pulmonary function testing & exam. Tx may be as simple as inhaler before running.
Possible reflux: During running and other physical activities, our GI tract slows down to shunt blood to our working muscles. When this happens, digestion slows way down. This increases the likelihood of having reflux and you'll get a sour taste in the back of the throat. Try running only after you wait an hour after eating or drinking a large quantity of fluid.
No: Oral thrush is a yeast infection of the mouth. Sometimes it is accompanied by thrush in the esophagus, which causes trouble swallowing. If you have trouble breathing, then that's not caused by thrush. I am assuming that you have been diagnosed with oral thrush by a physician, because that is usually a sign of a serious immune deficiency, unless you're using inhaled steroids.
VCD vs. Asthma: Exercise-induced asthma is more common than vocal cord dysfunction but both would have to be considered. Asthma tends to come on during cold/dry weather or may be triggered by allergens such as pollen, grasses or weeds. Vcd may have similar causes. Generally, asthma creates more breathing problems while exhaling, but vcd occurs while inhaling. See your primary care or sports med physican for help.See 2 more doctor answers

The: The only situations I have heard of anyone choking from mucous is in an elderly person that lived alone and was not able to clear their airway by coughing, however this is very rare. What medication are you allergic to? If you have a bronchitis or pneumonia you may need antibiotics, there are many to choose from if allergies are a concern. Drinking water will help thin the mucous secretions along with a daily anti-histamine. I suggest you go back to your doctor for alternative treatment options. Best of luck.
Suddenly?: Sudden nasal congestion can be from a viral infection. If you have been developing choking in your sleep for a while with some nasal congestion and now your nose is completely blocked you may have nasal allergies and post nasal drip. Depending on the duration of your symptoms either see your primary or an allergist.

Yes need scope: It is the presence of reflux more than the symptoms that increase the risk of developing barrett's esophagus. Barrett's esophagus is associated with an increased risk of esophageal cancer and needs surveillance. So with symptoms like you have you should see a G.I. Doctor and have and egd upper-scoop.See 2 more doctor answers
