I don't know, anxiety or something more?

Wasn't one with allergy as I live in dry climate of New Mexico, but that has changed. I now get sneezing, post nasal drip and this choking to point of gagging so much to point of vomiting. Here's a couple of things I did. First, went to see allergist but then went to ear, nose, throat specialist who determined that my throat was developing scar tissue from acid reflux. A procedure to done to open throat via a balloon. It was helpful in my swallowing and adjusted diet to avoid acid reflux. Hopefully some of this information is helpful. Good luck.

Marjou, I have Barrett's Esophagus. Also, I have a severely deviated septum. My nose swells to the point my doctor has to prescribe Prednisone so alleviate the swelling so I can hopefully breathe. When I go to bed, I have post nasal drip, sleep apnea together. I go to sleep for a minute, choke and wake up. I had a sleep test done and did not breathe 125 times during the night. Anyway, because of my nose problem, I cannot wear the mask at night (the CPAP). Some nights I stay up the whole night as I just know what is going to happen. Since I need back surgery (rod, plate, screws, fusion) and take pain meds, I cannot take anything for my nerves. I feel like I am in a Catch 22. ANY SUGGESTIONS, ANYONE?

@marjou I have the same problem live in SOCAL I found that the expectorant guaifenesin
in so many cough meds. helps a lot I take it at night . Lemon water cuts phlegm also .
