Ticklish feeling in my chest?

I have just had a "bout" with something. For many years I have had symptoms of mild asthma and every time I get a cold it goes directly to my chest and I need antibiotics to help it. This time I was put on antibiotics, steriods and inhalers. The pulmicort made me very DEPRESSED. I hated that feeling. As soon as I went off the pulmicort that feeling of depression went away. Now I'm left with a ticklish feeling that feels like it's on the right side of the inside of my chest. I still have a croupy sounding cough but not nearly as bad as I did a couple of weeks ago. My doctor wanted me off my inhalers and I'm also off the antibiotic. Is this ticklish feeling part of asthma? I do have acid reflux and take Aciphex for it. Sometimes after I eat even if I'm sitting up taking a nap, I will reflux and get choked. It scares me when this happens. It seems to happen after acidy drinks like orange juice, soda pop, etc. I thought that perhaps that was keeping things irritated in my chest and causing the ticklish feeling. I guess it could even be allergies or something. Any light you can shed on this will be greatly appreciated. Thanks!!!!

Re: Ticklish feeling in my chest?

I have a ticklish itchy feeling in my right lung,throat and ear. I had wheezing and trouble breathing. Still trying to figure out whats causing it. One doctor said broncitus one said allergies with asthma symptoms and I am even thinking possable chemical exposure from work. The day before my attack something was burning my nose and throat for about a 1/2 hour at work and I do work with some chemicals. They gave me antibiotics and cough medicine first time at doc second time a shot of steriods ,albutral and zyrtec. The steriod seemed to help alot. I still am having some wheezing on inhalation though. But the itchy tickly feeling is very bothersome. If you find out any info let me know.
