Throats in dreams are frequent metaphors for communication. A slit throat in a dream symbolizes someone you feel has been silenced or ignored in waking life; they can’t talk. If someone is strangling you in a dream, it reflects your feelings that someone is trying to "choke" your efforts to be heard or understood in waking life. To strangle someone in a dream reflects your anger toward them and a desire either to quiet, stifle or make them "choke" on their words.
If your throat is blocked in a dream, you cannot fully remove the object (such as gum or string), and you awaken out of breath, call a doctor of sleep medicine immediately! The dream reflects your difficulty breathing at night and is a common dream of sleep apnea sufferers. Sleep apnea is a serious sleep disorder that can kill. It is 100% curable, but you need to see a sleep specialist. To find one in your area, click on the “find a sleep doc” link below.
