Waking up feeling like im choking!!

Hi i know this might sound like a weird one.. but last night i was alseep when i suddenly woke up and felt like i was choking and almost like i couldnt swallow.
My heart was pounding and i felt really shaky.
I managed to calm myself down and was drifting back into sleep when i felt like i was falling then again felt like i couldnt swallow.
Its really kicked of my anxiety today :/

Does anyone else experience this - im worried it could be some sort of sleep disorder!

Lou

How weird. I just logged in to say the same thing, apart from I was fine this morning but after eating breakfast my throat feels like its closing up and like i am being strangled. Swallowing is difficult. What is this?

I guess so, but I was not feeling anxious at all....perhaps I was without knowing that.
