I used to have laryngospasm, first were growing in frequency then stabilized and finally disappeared, I guess because the increasing weakness and fatigue of the muscles of the larynx, similar to what happens to the cramps.
Why Do I Wake Up Gasping for Air?
The best way to pass them are to remain calm but it is very difficult. Once an old lady otolaryngologist told me that an old remedy was to put the head inside the refrigerator, changing temperature and humidity immediately relax the muscles of the larinje.
Believe me and works. I've had these for years. I'm only 37 yrs old.
I also choke easily on my saliva. I'm only have waking spasms when I am asleep, but NOT hooked up to my air machine. That leads me to believe that ataxia is involved. I will start some deep cervical flexor exercises right away.
Nice to see your comment. Last night I thought I was done for, it was bad and still this next day I feel like I haven't been able to 'clear' that part of my throat that triggers the spasm.
For 2 years ago I started noticing that I was experincing the "went down the wrong pipe" all the time. It could be saliva, a drink or even gasping apple would cause choking.
