She may have a post nasal drip that irritates the vocal cords causing spasm (choking feeling)The fact that she battles to swallow needs further examination, did they do a gastroscopy yet to look at the esophagus? Reflux can also cause spasm of the vocal cords, and damage to the esophagus with narrowing. She may also need to see if anything she eats or drinks (e.g. milk) worsens the symptoms. I think she needs to see a gastroenterologist first.
