DD2 who is 6 choked on a sweet last week whilst at her friends house, she was fine afterwards but since yesterday has been scared to eat incase she chokes, she will take a small piece of food and hold it in her mouth till it is just a watery mess then gets very upset and ends up having to spit it out, its awful to see her getting so upset. I have spoken to her and she just says its really tight in her throat. She seems fine otherwise and is not ill or anything, but she has been worrying about a little boy in her class who has been calling her a name and thats getting to her a bit. I think I will take her to GP tomorrow to see if there is a physical reason but apart from that I wondered if anyone has any experience of this?

I am trying to not make it an issue for her.

No experience of this but quite concerning.I think visiting GP is a very good start.

Poor little mite. Feeling that her throat is tight sounds like anxiety. Hope she feels better soon. flowers
