Coughing every time i eat or drink

Common Questions and Answers about Coughing every time i eat or drink


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 started having a chronic cough about 1993. I've been to every kind of doctor there is and had many tests. I did have reflux and had the fundoplication surgery for it. That was 10 years ago. I still have "mild" reflux. As long as I don't talk or eat dry food or scratchy food I don't cough as badly BUT, sometimes it just comes out of the blue. I've had all the different antihistamines, stomach medicines, antibiotics, steroids and so on that you can name.
1620623 tn?1298933897 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. I also noticed that since moving to our current apartment less than a year ago, the cough has got worse. There is a damp smell in the bedroom as the neighbour's bathroom is on the same wall - could the damp/mill-dew be the cause of the cough??? What other causes could there be??
Avatar n tn Make sure with full stomach because the acid from redish and lemon might hurt your stomach. Try 2-3x per week. Do not eat or drink dairy before or after take this at least 1hour.This is Mexican home remedies help nasal allergy and itching. For children older then 2 years, you can cut it in 1/3 the amount and about 2 times per week. I will try this for my son. I let him tasted the ingredient and he did like it so I will try on him tonight.
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 with this you could put low fat milk, or goat milk like I use, or soy or rice milk, you've got a lot of options... Then put some fruit in berries maybe strawberries and blueberries, a banana, and a little honey...make a fruit smoothie with the nutrition powder, tastes really good... usually, if a person's appetite is effected, they can usually drink better then they can eat...
Avatar n tn and one should take care to heal the body after all of that...and not stress it further...(I know, I'm obnoxious) docs say a drink or even two for men (spaced out) per day is okay, but more then that is pushing it, and this is for the general population, not even considering people who've just undergone chemical therapy as I said...for women less because women can't metabolize it as well as most men...
Avatar n tn Have you ever had allergy testing to see if you are allergic to something you are eating or drinking?
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 m tn and about 175 pounds, no history of unusual health problems other than a cyst in my sinus cavity, and I don't smoke or do drugs, and drink alcohol rarely; last time was about four months ago. Recently I've been trying to eat healthier - mostly fish, chicken, nuts, vegetables, fruit and a little grain here and there, though on occasion I cheat and drink some hot chocolate, or buy a chocolate croissant (pastry), but that's once or twice a week, tops.
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 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.

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 m tn I can't remember him being particular depressed during that time? He was doing his regular coughing from allergies. When I read about his liver more after his sudden death, I was shocked about what he was going through. It just completely overwhelemed me with guilt. My Vet reassured me and so have many on here there was nothing much I could had done for Jack. I hope maybe you will find your Pom and your Shepherd checks out OK?
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 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.
Avatar n tn At the time of the diagnoses I had no idea what Barrets was - the photos just looked horrific and I was told that I should come back for follow-up Gastroscopy in 3 months time and one day have to fix the tummy valve. I don't think about it every day. I just avoid the "triggers" and don't eat big meals at don't eat late at night and drink my meds (although I have to admit that I am not very good in remembering to take them).
Avatar n tn Do you clear your throat a lot during the day? I do and everytime I eat or drink something I experience also a lot of mucus in the throat which makes me clear my throat again. But the funny thing is, that I never have to cough.
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 email me at ***@**** please i have been having the same issues for 5 weeks and have blacked out three times and just this morning had a small seizure in front of my kids when i came to i felt my body still shaking as soon as i start coughing for a short period of time and or laugh hard it sends me into a coughing fit and i black out hospital has said my vitals are fine and send me on my way they dont go any further than that one hospital said it could be my uvula that is long causing me to
Avatar f tn 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. I feel on the verge of passing out the coughing vomiting are so bad.
Avatar m tn He also asked if I have lost any weight lately. At that time i didn't think I had so i told him i was pretty stable, but when I got home later on i weighed myself and I think i may be half a stone lighter than I was 2-3 months ago..... I haven't gone on any diets or exercise regime. He has prescribed me lansoprazole capsules which are a proton pump inhibitor. He also suggested that I try these for a month and if they don't help he'll refer me to an ENT specialist.
Avatar m tn Some of us have worked as vet techs or animal shelters. I did not say it was a death sentence. I said it is serious because it is an immune disease which makes him highly vulnerable to other illnesses and that the long term prognosis is not good. With intense management a cat can live up to 8-10 years, but that is not typical. Some cats with FeLV do succumb quickly, others do not. Both are the extremes with the majority being somewhere in between with about a 2 to 3 year life expectancy.
Avatar n tn I had a cold when I went to San Francisco this July and now im getting runny nose, sneezing, eye infection and ear infection every 2 week. I went to many doctor and they told me its a seasonal flu or a allergy. I tried all the medicine but it didnt help, it only keeps the flu down but it doesnt heal me.
Avatar n tn I too, answer the phone at work and my voice will go out. Whenever I eat I start coughing especially sweets!!! I feel like my life is gone!! I have an appt. w/ ENT in 2 days, hope it helps!
984284 tn?1249066235 I am worried, and have no idea how I can be so sick, I am active, eat extreamly well for a nineteen year old, don't do drugs I barley drink, ever, and I am a constant hand washer. The mysteries of life, Oh what I would give to crack this one I HATE BEING SICK T_T I was told out mind can creat issues, and I am worried this is possibe for me too.
Avatar m tn It causes me to have spasm coughing and if I cannot control this to 3 or 4 coughs my windpipe closes over making it hard to breath in or out. The last one about 2 years ago stopped me breathing in and out completely for 10 to 15 seconds and I thought I had bought it. The spasm cough causes it all and when it goes away (usually 4 to 5 days) things are relatively normal although a normal cough stays with me for weeks after.
