Intense cough causing vertigo and seizure like symptoms
I have a chronic cough from being ashtmatic and a smoker.  Obviously I need to quit smoking.  I'm a 33yr old male about 50lb overweight (6'4, 250).  However, my recent concern is that I get 1-2 week long cough attacks like twice a year, and during these attacks, I am getting increased episodes of vertigo and shakes.  In other words, I'll have a violent cough and I'll get extremely light headed and an 'out of body' type feeling and I can feel my hands shaking back and forth, like Mohammed Ali with his Parkinsons.  This lasts about 5-20 seconds.  I'm going to try and see a doctor soon but has anyone heard of this?

I have the same symptoms.  I'm also getting a sharp pain behind my left eye when this happens.  But the head rush, followed by slight numb hands, then the out of body experience, then my body shakes/rocks, then the headache kicks in which stays on for awhile as the other symptoms disappear until another coughing episode.
