Saliva/mucos choking during sleep
I get lot if saliva excretion while sleeping as I feel my mouth n wind pipe dried up & swallow saliva for this reason. Sometimes this causes saliva or mucos entering windpipe in deep sleep & I wake up suddenly due to choking & unable to breathe. Only after standing up & after struggling badly, I am able to breathe normally. This sometimes fears me of choking to death while I am about to sleep. I am allergic to cough. Kindly consult
