This has never happened to me before - and it is very disconcerting. Recently I've been waking several times a night from a sound sleep with the feeling I am choking on a lump in my throat. I'll take a drink of water and then massage the front of my throat, that makes it better for long enough that I can fall back asleep. Eating actually makes it feel better than drinking, though. Doesn't really happen during the day that I notice. It doesn't hurt at all.
I have been using a vaporizer, and drinking lots of water, neither which seems to be helping. Has anyone else ever had this happen?
