Severe Coughing after eating or drinking

Thank you for the information now here's my story:
Five years ago, I had a bad chest cold, the doctor's office was over booked by two hours and I coughed till I was blue.
After that I developed slight asthema, I also went for dental work, which I overmedicated on baby asprin, Advil, etc., and wound up having an endoscopy done which resulted in a little reflux and small herina, after being on Previdcid went away.  In 12/09 I started to break out in those massive hives closing my throat and into the ER twice, I went to an allergist the day before the last ER visit and he told me to take OTC meds; which I said would not work, he didn't listen and now he will pay my ER visit.  Now I am coughing after eating or drinking.  It feels like a dry cough from down deep in my belly when I do cough.  I do feel some nasal congestion at times but sometimes do cough up little globs of green, then stop coughing.  I don't trust doctors because they don't listen to me; they want to 'blanket cover' everyone under the same symptom.  I was seeing a pulmonary, he was giving me shots of steriods, inhaler, Advir; but when I was breaking out in hives, went to see him and he then saw the 'relation' between my hives and coughing.  I am still coughing after eating & drinking and now am unemployed, looking for work.   The ER gave me an Epi pin and the GP gave me a box of steriods, incase I get those massive hives again... But all of this does not explain for fix what is wrong with me.  I don't know who to trust.  I also am hypothyroid and in reading... may  be the cause of some of my problems, but again,  when an Endocronologist tells you "I've never heard of a swollen tongue in my 19 years of teaching", you darn wonder what kinds of people are out there they call themselves doctors!

Have you ever had allergy testing to see if you are allergic to something you are eating or drinking?

As a speech therapist working mainly with people with dysphagia, or swallowing disorders, I suggest speaking with your GP or an ENT and getting a swallow study. you may have abnormalities in your swallow causing material to not fully clear and trickle down into your windpipe later. GERD can cause swallowing difficulties in a number of ways. If not dealt with, dysphagia can result in aspiration pneumonia or a number of other health problems. I've met people with this problem who have suffered for many years without treatment because they simple thought "that's the way I am." There are many ways to combat this problem, including diet changes, positioning, exercises, & e-stim. I hope you are able to find relief.
