For a while now I have been experiencing night time choking. It happens once every few weeks or so. I will be awoken from my sleep unable to breathe like there is a blockage in my throat and I will cough strongly until I can breathe again. It only takes a few seconds. Last night was my worst experience yet and I coughed up a small amount of liquid also.
I also have a persistant sore throat and cough. I have been to the GP about this previously and it was identified I had a throat infection, which I was given antibiotics for and it cleared up. However I still have an underlying sore throat and cough.
Ive only recently looked up the symptoms and the internet has revealed acid reflux, gert and hiatal hernia as possibilities. I don't have any other symptoms, no heartburn, no chest pains, no vomiting or trouble swallowing or eating.
I also do weightlifting and because of this I was worried whether a hiatal hernia is causing this. Obviously this is worrying me.
I have booked an appointment at the GP but can't get in until the 29th Dec. I'm not sure what I need to say to him to ensure I get the right tests and referals. I don't want to just be prescribed antacids or meds because of my worries about potential hernia.
Can anyone offer any advice please?
