Hi Kim, I hope you are well.

My anxiety comes with symptoms of difficulty swallowing food because of tightness in throat, nausea, gagging and spaced out.

I was wondering if you had any advice to the gagging specifically?

I replied to Jills post explaining my situation but also came across your posts about gagging.

Hi Jill can totally relate to your issue. I have the same problem recently went and got Hypnotherapy as I had tried everything else to get rid of the dry reaching. I suffer from PTSD from a bad truck accident still suffer from dry reaching have periods where I can go months without any attacks then “bang” it’s back. Am about to Google plum stone throat to find out what it’s about how did you go with it ? Thanks Trev
