Hi, I saw this while researching my problem, and I registered because I just HAD to post!
I'll say to everyone, I feel your pain, and how! About two weeks ago, I got sick, and it's the first time I had these coughing fits. It feels like you are choking, and sometimes even coughing violently doesn't help. It happens maybe 4-5 times a day, and when I saw some of the other posts people post here, I knew I wasn't alone with this problem.
