It all stemed from when i had a major eperleptic fit in my sleep and i almost died. I had to spend three weeks in hospital. I think because this happend in my sleep im always abit frightend of going to sleep anyway. Night times are a diffucult time for me now. So is the sensastion in my mouth and throat realy nothing for me to worry about?.
I was just recently diagnosed with Epilepsy. I am 28 years old, and have had 2 major seizures.
The throat closing for me, was one of my "warning" signals that a seizure was coming. Followed by a TINGLING my my mouth.
Not to scare you, but I always thought, "OMG I am gonna have a seizure"...whenever I would get this "throaty" feeling. It's so hard to describe...its as if my throat dries up and it "catches" off of something in my throat and makes me TRY to swallow, and sometimes I can't.
My doctor says, since I am on medication it's hard to say whether it's an "aura" or anxiety or a combination of both. He thinks its globus hystericus. He says to me, "If a seizure is going to happen, it will happen meds or not"
If your doctor says you are fine, chances are, that you ARE fine.
I just have to learn to convince myself that too.
