while i wish i had information on the hows or whys of such a choking feeling--it does sound to me similar to symptoms in a mild panic attack, i can only relay a time that i still see as particularly odd. i was depressed, and became uncontrollably upset over a movie (of course this was just the catalyst) (Babe, of all the things...the duck looking in the window as his friend is being eaten...). i began having what i now know was a panic attack, with the salient symptom being that i could not speak. i could hardly breath. i felt the words and the letters, viseral, in my throat, but was unable to relay them. i felt as if i were to throw up, and was certain that if i spoke somehow the words themselves would trigger this.

i'd love to know the physiological mechanisms that contribute to such things. i assume that it has something to do with the CNS feeling that it is under attack and retaliating (closing the airway to keep germs out?), but if anyone has more specific information, i'd be interested.
