Coughing every time i eat

Common Questions and Answers about Coughing every time i eat


Avatar n tn Every time I eat or drink anything I begin coughing and am unable to stop for about 20 to 30 minutes. I do cough and sniff a lot of the rest of the time which I guess is from post nasal drip. I take claritin for allergies all year. I do not have any respiratory symptoms like heartburn. I am terribly embarassed to eat around other people which is impossible to avoid. I have very mild asthma and my pulmonologist sent me for a swallow test.
Avatar n tn I am over the flu, but ever since I had the flu..every time I eat anything..I cough from the first bite to the last bite. When I am not eating I do not cough, and I stop coughing after I am done eating..(I never had this problem in my life). I am in Florida and I know we are starting with the pollen season..I do have sinus problems..Sinus medicine keeps the sinus problem under control. I never had this coughing problem when I eat with my sinus problems. I Appreciate any advise you can tell me.
Avatar n tn I havent had tonsills for 49yrs. I have told every doc I've seen and tryed everything over the whole time with no results. I still have a peak flow of 750. I wish the docs would figure this out.
1620623 tn?1298933897 I have started to cough constantly for the past month - (although I have always had a cough sometimes worse at times but now it seems serious).I have tried using steroid nose spray along with a saline nose spray in the hope that it is just a post nasal drip. I have also been taking a codeine syrup to relax the cough - none of these have worked and am now in the process of blood tests and throat swabs to eliminate any bacteria or infections etc.
Avatar f tn that seems to be getting some better, but every time I eat...I sort of get a cough...that I dont have any other time...and get this feeling I'm gonna throw up. Sometimes, I do, and then I feel fine and the cough disapears again. I dont eat too much or too often(2 meals a day-every 12 hours) and the more I eat seems to make it worse. I'm confused as to what is going on???
Avatar n tn Hello- I am a 57 year old woman who does not drink soda, has one cup of coffee a day, exercises, never drinks liquor and never smoked, don't eat fatty foods (watch what I eat) and have some work related stress but not to extremes. My weight is normal. For about a year, I have had a continual problem with coughing and clearing my throat that is so bad, that I sometimes cannot speak at public functions (part of my job.) Sometimes I cant even clear my throat no matter how hard I try.
Avatar n tn I've gone through antibotics, steriods, four bottles of cough syrup and nothing helps. I take a nexium every morning and I am taken one at supper time now to. Sometimes it seems to get bettter and I don't cough much and then it hits real hard and that's all I do. What do you think my problem is?? My doctor is going on that it is GERD. Shouldn't I have some tests or something to prove that this is the problem? This is going on the third month with no inprovement. I'm really getting tired of it.
Avatar n tn at first i thought i had food allergies but i am thinking that it is something else now. after each meal no matter what i eat i get to coughing so much that sometimes i vomit or start choking myself. it gets very scary and it is hard to breath while this is going on, somedays it lasts like 10-15 minutes and others it last hours.
Avatar n tn I gave him my Nasonex 1 buff in each nostril and he stop coughing in about 5 mins. It's mirracle to me. However, I just learn this home remedies last week and I want to share with you to try and see if it works. I tried it on me 3 nights ago and I did not have post nasal drop last 2 nights and no day neezing. For aldult: 2 red radish crushed + 1or 2 teaspoon honey + half yellow lemon. Stir up and eat.
Avatar n tn It doesn't matter what I eat. And I often clear my throat throughout the day. I got my gallbladder out 2 yrs ago, no effect (not sure if there would be). I have had an upper endoscopy and a barium swallow which none showed any abnormalities. I have been taking Ranitidine (300mg) for over a year and now they added Aciphex 20mg..... no relief. Symptoms are still there. What could be wrong?
Avatar m tn I feel a constant tightness in my throat and every time I swallow, I have coughing fits.Throughout the day I will have to clear my throat and i always have clear mucus to clear. It's made it to the point where I don't looking forward to meals anymore b/c I know what to expect. I'm a big foodie and eating out in public is not enjoyable at this point. I have gone for a Barium swallow x-ray to test for GERD and acid reflux- results came back fine.
Avatar n tn It only lasts a few minutes, but my main issue is that every time I get this cough I have severe itching on the right side of my chest and the same side of my upper back (as far as location, it almost feels that if you drilled a hole straight through the itch on my chest that you would touch the itch on my back). Each time I cough it itches even more. The itching is so severe that I scratch the spot on my chest and the spot on my back until it is raw.
Avatar n tn I too get irritated by coughing/choking every time I try to eat something. Unfortunately my cough varies sometimes it is a dry cough, sometimes a chesty cough sometimes I bark like a seal and phlegm sticks at the back of my throat. I have had this for over 12 months now, I have had x-ray on my throat and lung area and told all is well. So where do I go from here. My coughing can also attack me even when I am not eating and I cough so hard that it is now hurting my chest.
Avatar m tn - Constant coughing (most when I am sitting, when it's hot outside, or when the air is wet, but other times as well; no link to excercise), every day - Short, stabbing pains in my upper chest, an inch or two below the clavicule (both sides), my left armpit my left shin bone (when running), my shoulders (especially when leaning on them), and occasionally my upper or lower back; something, usually more than one something, hurts every day - Drawn-out, aching pains in my left calf muscle (when sit
Avatar m tn Last night, when my son cough so much. And I was so deperate; I gave him my Nasonex 1 buff in each nostril and he stop coughing in about 5 mins. It's mirracle to me. However, I just learn this home remedies last week and I want to share with you to try and see if it works. I tried it on me 3 nights ago and I did not have post nasal drop last 2 nights and no day neezing. For aldult: 2 red radish crushed + 1or 2 teaspoon honey + half yellow lemon. Stir up and eat.
634733 tn?1316629592 Aspiration does not happen every time you eat...because you always eat different things. Take notice to what you eat and if it makes you cough or not. You can have aspiration with drinking lemonade or soup but eat a soft pretzel and be fine. that is because the consistency is different. Start making a food journal and if you experience the coughing/runny nose/water eyes/unable to catch your breathe...after certain foods then you possibly could have aspiration.
Avatar n tn My son who is now 3 yrs old, gives me really hard time in feeding him. I have tried every possible measure like involving him in the kitchen to taking him out to dine outside, even having small get together/picnic with his age group kids but nothing has altered his eating habit. He was born hypoglycemic and was in NICU for 4 days. I couldn't breast him, he was on bottles. When he was 6-7 months, we started introducing him different Indian food(we are from india).
Avatar n tn It's been over a year now, and it feels like it's getting worse. The only time I have relief is when I go to sleep at night. Upon wakening, it begins immediately when I get up. I've been tested for acid reflux/gerd and don't have either. I saw an ENT who looked at my sinuses through a light, and said he couldn't see anything but redness in my throat from the constant throat clearing. He told me to come back for a scan of my sinuses if my acid reflux test was negative.
Avatar f tn I haven't been real consistent with my meds. It seems like every time I try, my reflux seems worse. I don't know if it is really the meds or if I try it when I'm desperate and the reflux is bad anyway. I didn't know that I might have too little acid and that could be my problem. Doc didn't check for that. He based his diagnosis on how my throat looked. I didn't even know that I had acid reflux until I started having horrible choking attacks where I literally couldn't breath.
1620115 tn?1386435009 im tired of wasting my time in a doctors office for nothing exspecially when because the days when i have to think about going to the doctors are the days when i start feeling the most, i have ben told by many therapists doctors and psychologists that i have a sensitive mind so obviously anything thats bad for anyone can be 10 times worse for me in thought, im tired of my stomach hurting it hurts mostly obve my belly button below my chest all the time to some degree, i like drinking alc but eve
Avatar n tn HI, I have for the last few months I've had a problem of coughing when I eat, I do not cough at any other time except at night. Somehow food irritates my chest & causes me to cough. It also causes phlegm to be produced & my nose to run, though I do not feel congested at any other time, not even at night. During the night I do get a tickle that makes me cough.
Avatar n tn ) It doesn't seem to matter what I eat, and it happens pretty much after every meal. I have never been diagnosed with any kind of respiratory problem like asthma or anything like that, nor do I have any food allergies, but I was wondering if maybe I should tell my doctor about this problem and if maybe it is a fixable thing? Does anyone else have a similar problem?
Avatar n tn i have had the same problem and find when i eat high fatty foods or dairy i cough up flem. I try to eat smaller meals with a reducing the fat and dairy intake. I also try to stay away from anything with artificial sweetener as well because i think it adds to it.
Avatar n tn I inhaled deeply causing my abdomen to rise then slowly releasing the breath I fell asleep and woke up several times and no coughing spells so every time i was semi-awake i did the exercises and to my surprise its been about 4 to five hours and since i started breathing exercises not one coughing spell.
209384 tn?1231171906 Have taken too many pain pills of various kinds to count and am also on Tussionex, cough syrup plus hydrocodone every 8 hours. Understand why I have this horrible yeast infection, but have NO IDEA why I still ave all these other infections!! Figure I should have probably been in the hospital all this time, but with a little one at home and nobody to take care of him impossible. Will try to keep you updated, but basically all I can do is cough now and shake, I am so weak.
390388 tn?1279639813 Hmmm, OK, I don't have any food or air born allergies. I also don't have a cold and haven't for a long time. I do have this cough though that sometimes starts with a tickle or just pops out of no where that is so violent that it causes me to get sick. This has lasted for a few months; but, now is getting bad because it's been causing me to get sick now for the last couple of weeks. PRIOR History: My lower back has been verry sore for months and still is.
Avatar f tn The coughing is not my problem, however. My problem is that for the past week and a half every time I eat, I cough and vomit up everything I eat. When I cough I gasp for breath and my stomach seems to have involuntary spasms and I gag and a lot of times I vomit. This doesn't seem normal, any help?
Avatar f tn In the last month it got worse and I went to my doctor. I can't eat. I have lost twenty pounds. I force myself to eat some applesauce or a banana. Sometimes I can get down some bread. I drink gatorade. That is pretty much it. If it seems I am feeling good, I try to eat a better meal, but then get diarrhea the next day (sorry if TMI). I am nauseous each morning and dry heave. On the mornings I do vomit, it is mostly spit and what little drink I have had in the morning, not even bile.
