Tickle In Throat Feeling...Can It Be Controlled?

I often get that feeling during the most embarrassing times; on the bus, at the mall, durring dinner...not often, but it happens. Anyone know why? And what initiates it?

I get this too sometimes - most often it wakes me up from sleeping and I'll get into a real coughing fit. Does anybody know if this is caused from GERD?

I have the same thing along with coughing fits. I think mine is caused by prescription meds. (The cough is for sure).

I feel something abrasive/ticklish irritating my throat. This results in my trying to clear my throat repeatedly, (a reflex), with no success. A coughing fit follows. I have to sit up in bed when I start coughing, and my eyes tear up.

I too have wondered if it's possible for the acid to cause this unpleasant irritation.

Re: Tickle In Throat Feeling...Can It Be Controlled?

I have suffered with GERD for several years. I used to get coughing fits every night. Then finally a doc told me that this could be caused by my reflux. At the time, I was taking Nexium so he told me to take it in the evening instead of the morning and to my surprise, no more coughing fits in the middle of the night. This really worked for me. It's worth a try.
