In brief: Strangulation fear
The question you are asking relates to a phobia of strangulation.
It is considered a phobia. Phobias can sometimes best explore in a mental state of induced focused relaxation and attention called hypnosis. If done by an experienced and certfied professional your fear may be explored and actually disappear. There are many kind of hypnosis but regression hypnosis may be one option.

In brief: Medical or emotional
If you have chronically had a hypersensitive gag reflex, it may not be so urgent to be evaluated.
A neurological review by your md would be warranted to rule out serious illnesses that may present in this manner. If there is of course a history of choking on food or of trauma inflicted to the neck, consider psychiatric evaluation as to possible post-traumatic stress disorder. Treatment would work.
