Have suffered with asthma for several years but I also seem to suffer with hypersensitive upper airways. Sometimes just swallowing my saliva if it goes down wrong way, i seem to develop a stridor and unable to get air in. The feeling of panic is awful, I am unable to use my ventolin at that time as can't seem to get a decent breathe in! It maybe only lasts a minute before it starts to settle! But I am starting to feel worried! Does anyone else have this problem?
