Whenever I eat I think about each bite and I'm pretty sure I tighten my throat when I swallow so I feel the food going down which makes me think it's stuck there. I get this helpless feeling I'm going to choke and just watch around me as people cannot get the food out of my throat and I die...does anyone have this or know someone that does???
When my anxiety was at a high I just never ate while I was out or moving in particular in fear of choking. This made me lose far too much weight. I've choked a lot and get scared when other people do :(
i know anxiety can cause a dry throat and tightening i used to be scared of eating because i couldnt swallow and it just wouldnt go down it was scary or it would tighten while swollowing making it stuck in my throat, well the feeling of it stuck there. just try breathe while eating, distract yourself with something that interests you or visualize you eating and it being fine, it helped for me x
