PLEASE HELP! I have had this problem for a couple of years now. I start coughing, constantly, when I laugh hard, or after I eat...maybe a little too much. It's not so much a 'dry' cough, because I do feel 'something' in my throat. My cough will continue until I gag and throw up sometimes. I do not smoke, and only drink occasionally. I will also start coughing when I smell certain things, like BBQ sauce, Ketsup, anything with a strong vinegary aroma. I have had colds in the past, and sinus issues, but they have always been resolved with antibiotics and decongestants. Could I possibly have asthma? I do not get winded or short of breath, unless I'm doing strenuous excercise, and I do not have tightness in my chest. What tests can be done to determine what exactly I DO have? I do not have health insurance, so I can't afford to do alot of 'process of elimination' tests that will end in a questimate diagnosis.
Any and all information that you can provide to me would be greatly appreciated!!!
