Your throat may still be sensitive, from the whooping cough.  It can sometimes take up to 6 month for that sensitivity and cough caused by laughing to clear-up completely.Over time, you should experience gradual improvement.  If you don't, you should see your doctor and not wait 6 months.

I had that same problem for many years and I was just recently diagnosed with a rare incurable lung disease. I have never smoked. So the next time you go to the doctor ask for a CT scan of your lungs. Normal people do not cough when they laugh.

hmmm well i noticed that's been happening to me now but then again i've gained a lot of weight after having my baby and i have failed to lose it. i've actually known of "normal" people who do that..and most of them are over weight..maybe that's it?i'm actually supposed to get a chest ct scan but i've been putting it off for a few wks since i've had like 3-4 mris and ct scans already. from time to time i feel a  very cold sensation inside my chest feels like theres a pool of ice. i guess i'll stop putting it off and get it huh. what disease is this? is it chronic but treatable?
