I had trouble swallowing in the middle of the night last night. Is it common?

I was laying awake at 1 AM last night and when saliva was generating in my mouth, for some reason for 2 straight minutes I had difficulty swallowing. It was almost like I tried to swallow but just couldn't. What is this? Is it very common?

    The more you think of the problem, the more the problem grows

    As an experiment, dont swallow for a moment, then concentrate on how unnatural it is.  It really is a weird feeling.  The fact that your whole throat has to move.  You can suddenly become unable to swallow even though its an automatic function

    This also goes for blinking and breathing

    • Really? Wow ok. Thanks.

      Was just concerned it might be throat cancer.
