Choking ....Near death experience

I Had one of these this morning, woke up feeling great, actually better than usual, so decided to treat mysel to Steak and Eggs for breakfast.

Literally my first mouthful of egg seemed to stick in my throat, so I went to reach for water when I realised I couldn't breath, I drank some water (I've since learned this is the WRONG thing to do) but it didn't help! I then found myself a complete mess, all I could do was continuously gasp for a breath that just wasn't coming.

I started to feel light headed, and I felt very aware that if couldn't get some air in soon I would pass out, and probably die! Luckily for me, my wife came into the room hit me on the back a few times, there was no sudden relief, or anything noticably coughed up, but I was gradually able to get some air. Whether or not it was the thumping, or if it naturally moved, but either way it was later than I'd preferred...but I am not going to complain.

For what it's worth, I think the culprit was.... You know when you fry an egg, and some of the white turns into a thin plastic like membrane? Well, a bit of that.

I literally thought that was my lot. It's one of those situations than probably doesn't seem as scary to read, as it does when you are experiencing it, but I am pretty shaken and well aware of my mortality.

The silly thing is, I am aware of how to do Heimlich on yourself, but the panic just overrode any rational thought.

Just had dinner, and chewed each tiny mouthful about 400 times.

Anyone else had a close shave with choking? Scariest experience of my life.

    Ffs glad all’s well mate, that’s probably one of life’s gems I haven’t had the pleasure of yet, I’d be a mess after that tbh.

    Bad do that, 
     
    Only ever had one similar, as a kid. Choked on a boiled sweet. Remember thinking it was game over,  but luckily my father ran out, turned me upside down and wacked me on back. If he had been out, reckon I be dead.

    Happened to me twice as a 4 year old, remember once in the car a hard mint sweet I’d stole from my mums bag, and when she realised I was choking on it she stopped the car wacked me on the back and it came up to my relief.

    The second time was on the night my dad died coincidentally, I had this balloon that needed blowing up and I kept blowing and sucking the air back in, I think out of nervousness as I wondered if my dad was going to survive, eventually the balloon ended up down the back of my throat and I was ****ting bricks for about 30-40 seconds, all my family were occupied with police and paramedics as my dad had just had an epileptic fit and heart attack in his sleep and died.

    Fortunately for me and given the circumstances where no one could help me I managed somehow to get my hand in my throat and just get a pinch of the balloon and pull it out of my throat. Not sure a wack on the back would have helped with a plastic balloon stuck down my throat, but thankfully I pulled through.

    Had a few near moments as an adult but nothing water hasn’t managed to push through.

    If you love something let it go,if it comes back to you it's yours,if it doesn't it never was.

    About a month ago.  Nothing as severe as that but I took 2 paracetamols for a head ache and decided to neck them both at once.  They got stuck for a while (probably seconds in reality) and I eventually managed to wash them down with water.

    What freaked me out most was, I had my kids for the weekend but only my 7 year old as my eldest was out at football.  He was upstairs playing and all I could think of was him on his own in the house if anything happened.
     
    Like I say, not severe and over with quickly but the thought of my lad finding me on his own really disturbed me for a while.

    Haven't choked but got a crayon stuck up my nose and had to go to hospital to have it removed. 
     
    As you couldn't resolve your issue you need to change your username from Dr Z to Mr Z.
     
    Glad you're okay mate.

    My son choked on a grape when he was just under 3 years old, and not just for a short time, he wasn't breathing properly for about 15mins, he must have been breathing ever so slightly through a tiny gap, he went blue in the face and lips and everything, we thought we'd lost him. Somehow it managed to dislodge and he came round, but it was the most traumatic experience of my life, and it messed me up for weeks.

    This thread makes me think I should really teach the missus how to deal with a child that's choking. I do first aid every year for work but to my knowledge she's never done it.
     
    Children choking is a real fear of mine. Someone I knew was pushing their toddler in a pram and gave him a lolly to suck on. I think he must have bit his tongue as he let out one of those yells they do where all the breath leaves them. Obviously what follows is a huge breath, which sucked the lolly back deep into his throat. He died as a result.
     
    Glad you are alright though mate. It's definitely worth chewing!

    LOL, Thanks folks. to be honest though it wasn't like I didn't chew it properly, It was a tiny bit of fried egg! 
     
    That story is awful Brett   One of my earliest memories as a kid was swallowing a 2p, All I remember is my Nan hanging me upside down and hitting my back till it came out. 
     
    Certainly makes you aware of your mortality though, for all the dangerous things we do, I don't think any of us expect to die from something like that, but I suspect many people must do?  I am pretty sure that if I had been in the house alone I would have croaked (although I've read its possible that when you pass out, the airway can relax and resolve the problem sometimes).

    ^^^ The airway thing is true, but I wouldn't like to rely on it!
     
    I think most choking deaths are probably vomiting when unconsious TBH.

    Happend to me about 10 years or so ago at the cinema. Was watching a movie and eating a packet of minstrils, when one got stuck in my throat. There was no pain, could just feel a strange cold sensation in my throat. It was then I realised I couldn’t breath in or out. Like you say, panic kicks in and I jumped up trying my hardest to bend over and cough it out. The fear of death kicked in pretty quick too!
    I eventually coughed it out and all was ok.
    I’ve caught my kids in the past doing silly things like throwing sweets in the air and trying to catch them in their mouth, to which I’ve went mental and warned them about how stupid it is and how fast and easy it is to choke on your food.

    Glad you're still with us Dr Z. I had this myself a few years ago. It resulted in me developing a pretty serious gag reflex for months where I really struggled to eat certain foods.

    I eventually resorted to a living off shakes and smoothies for a while until I got my confidence back but I'm now very careful about what I eat.
