im freaking out so bad right now I feel like my throat is closed. It just feels full or filled with mucus or something. Would I know if I had an allergic reaction to something? Or was poisoned? I heard throat symptoms can mean something else is going on in the body. And I'm really scared that's the case with me. Plus I've been feeling sharp pains in my neck sometimes todsy

GERD maybe? That can cause excess mucus production, which leads to the feeling of mucus in the throat. Anxiety also causes a sensation of a lump in the throat which may or may not be a factor here.

Also post nasal. I’ve had the feeling of fullness in my throat or like there isn’t enough room for the air to go down

Yes, post nasal drip as well. Knew I was forgetting something. PND may be caused by GERD as well, but is also part of allergies and other harmless junk.
