I wonder whether anybody could give me any information about what I'm going through?
While I am eating, I become breathless, my face and tongue go very numb, I find it unpleasant to continue eating, and I start to cough. Sometimes the cough makes me sick. Eventually, mucus starts coming out of my lungs, and, if I'm lucky, the problem seems to clear up after maybe half an hour or an hour.
This started 2 years ago. I went to a doctor (in Japan), and he did tests and said it was cough variant asthma. He also tested for allergies, and found none. He gave me ventolin which didn't seem to provide any relief, but the problem seemed eventually to fade. But now we are expecting a baby, it has come back with a vengeance, and has made morning sickness much worse. I've lost a kilo and a half in a month.
The attacks are also triggered by cigarette smoke, perfume and mould, though I can't figure why food should provoke them. They are worse with stress.
Can anybody give me any idea what to do about this?
