Is there anyone here who finds that mere eating functions as a trigger, causing coughing and shortness of breath? I don't mean reflux or food allergy, but just eating anything. What kinds of experiences do you have with it? Have any idea how usual it is?
My asthma began with massive coughing right after or even during eating - at any time of the day and with any food. Now, as I have medication, I still suffer this annoying thing, more or less every time I eat. When I'm otherwise well, I cough just a little during the meal/right after it, (if the meal is real small in duration and amount, like one fruit, then it usually doesn't happen). And if I'm bad, I may cough and cough - untill I take some reliever. Yesterday I had a bad day, and at one time I didn't dare to take even a little cookie though I was hungry.. I mean I wanted to avoid going even worse..
Is this familiar to anyone here? My doctor hadn't heared of this kind of a trigger before
