It must go up or down

I have this kind of choking thing that sometimes happens when I eat. It's not a Heimlich maneuver type thing. I can breathe.

I can feel it sort of hanging there like my valve that goes through my diaphragm is in spasm. If I drink water it will either go down or come up. I thought that was a coping strategy until I almost aspirated.
Coping strategies. I've become more aware of how I feel the night before. I take GasX, tums etc. I've been to the radiologist drank the liquid barium, ate a barium soaked cracker, and we saw nothing wrong.
Question - am I missing anything? - I take Benazepril HCl which I recently read can cause your windpipe to close down. I don't think that's the same thing.
PS -- I have the idea that exercise is helping me.
