Hi I'm 23 years old and I've been experiences these random episodes of coughs. It starts with an itchy sensation in my upper chest, then my eyes start to water and my nose starts running, as I am coughing uncontrollably.It usually last about a minute or two, but when I am done my face and eyes are red from the strain of coughing. Its so embarrassing because it happens at random times, and I often be in public or in class so I have to quickly excuse myself. It feels like I have to sneeze but sometimes I can't even get out the sneeze. It horrible! I've been dealing with this on and off for years, it comes and goes. I don't have any allergies, and I am not on any medication. I want to know what might be triggering these attacks and what can I do to stop it.
sounds like you're allergic to something. allergies can come on at any time, at any age. even if you have never experienced them in your lifetime, they can start at any given time. check with an allergist or maybe even an ENT (ears, nose, throat specialist). good luck!
