That sounds odd. Do you think he might have something blocking his throat? I would get it checked out but maybe just because I have never heard of anything like that in one so young.

I had no idea you were Fostermum's dd CP even though I know you live in the same area!

If I were you, I would ring up the GP and explain the situation and ask them what they think you should do. I usually find they are willing to see you even though you are not sure it is an emergency, and I feel better about going because I think "Well they knew what I was going about". Usually they see babies because you can never be sure what is the matter with them.

Loss of voice and choking/gagging can be a sign of an upper respiratory infection, such as bronchiolitis, or tonsillitis . Worth getting checked even though most are viral and can be treated only symptomatically as they can suddenly become quite unwell with it and dehydrate especially worrying if it is hot too.
