About 2 years ago I got the random fear of choking on my food. Every time I would chew a piece of food I would get a sudden panic that I will choke on it when I am in the process of swallowing it. I have never choked on my food I just get the panic that I will.
I have had severe social anxiety before this started. It was anxiety of people etc so nothing related to food. Although, I have read eating problems can arise for people who've experienced social anxiety.
My problem has gotten so bad that I cannot eat out of my house. I can eat absolutely fine in my own house but at families, friends or public I cannot - the anxiety is too much. I have to eat in another room when at families houses.
I know it is a psychological problem as I can eat food normally. I need advice on what I can do to try and slowly overcome this?
I need some urgent advice I can start putting into practice as this summer I am going on holiday with friends. Of course, I will have to eat with my friends in the summer. Please help someone!
Thanks for reading
