Unproductive cough (I guess that is what you'd call it)...looking for people experiencing the same...and how you deal with it... I seem to have the urge to choke every time I eat. I really need to cough but I can't. Not sure if that even makes sense to somebody who hasn't experienced it. I can't get any "umph" behind it. I'm not really afraid of choking. It's just the feeling that is so frustrating. Does anybody else have this problem? If so, have you found a way to get any relief?
