Why was I unable to breathe?

It’s currently 4am EST and I’m awake and freaked out because about 15 minutes ago I was asleep then I suddenly couldn’t breathe. It felt like my throat closed and I weezed twice before stopping and breathe through my nose. Suddenly my throat opened back up and I can now breathe normally except the back and bottom of my throat burns like I just threw up. I didn’t throw up but it sure does burn like it. I was thinking maybe I accidentally swallowed a bug and it bit the back of throat making me not be able to breathe but that wouldn’t explain the stomach acid taste and burn. My throat was closed for all of about 5 seconds. this has never happened before and I’m kind of afraid to go back to sleep. Can someone tell me what just happened to me and how to make sure it never happens again?

    Sounds like acid reflux. That has happened to me.
