Coughing while eating

I've had what I believe is mild bronchitis for 6 months...not really shortness of breath, but wheezing while breathing. My cough is non-productive, but is really exacerbated while eating. I cough alot then, and it 'feels' like something's going down the windpipe but without choking. Otherwise, I feel good, enough energy, and pretty good for 54 years. I've had acute bronchitis 7 years ago, and this feels like a mild form of that. Any 'cough' experts out there?

Re: Coughing while eating

Check out acid reflux. Sounds more like that then a lung problem. The acid may be backing up and going into lung and making you cough. It is often confused for asthma because the symptoms are the same. You could try and over the counter medication for reflux and see if that helps or go to either an ENT Dr. or gastro Dr.
