Is it normal for a teething baby to choke/gag on drool?

My 7 mo ds has gagged twice in the last 2 days, it's a gagging cough followed by a loud intake of breath & watery eyes. The intake of breath is almost whooping cough like, but he's vaxed and he has no other symptoms (and these aren't coughing "fits" it just sounds like he's choking). We pat him on the back & when he catches his breath he goes back to gnawing on his fists, etc...

Has anyone else's lo done this? It freaks me out.
