An 11 year old healty male. The first week of March he had the flu a couple of days later he had bronchitis. The day this happened we took him to the fair, he ate cotton candy, fast food and went to bed. A couple of minutes later he woke up complaining of a headache, dizziness and vomiting. After that he started this uncontrollable strange burst of exhalation of air. They came only seconds apart and lasted for hours. He has been given urine test, blood test, CT scans or his body and brain, Xrays and the doctor has given us a good report. This activity has been lately happening at night. He could be just sitting watching tv and start to involuntary exhale which has started to last for 8 to 10 seconds of more causing him to gasps for air when it is over. I have noticed sometimes during the day when he laughs or has a sudden movement it tries to start. What is this?
