unexplained coughing & vomiting

My child coughs non-stop while eating. We have had him tested for dysphagia and reflux. He has been doing it for the past two years. He also vomits quite often after meals. Sometimes he vomits if he runs, or jumps around to much and usually always after you tickle him, even if its been several hours since he has eaten. He is 3 years old now. I have no idea what the problem is. I am still thinking some form of dysphagia, should be have further testing?

Re: unexplained coughing & vomiting

Does your son get out of breath while playing or pant heavy? My son also coughed alot then would vomit after non-stop coughing, wether he had eaten or not... Doctors told me it was asthma. I would take him back in and have them do some more tests. Making an appointment with an Ear, nose and throat doctor would be a good idea. They cover alot of areas.
hope tht helps out your little one.

Re: unexplained coughing & vomiting

Thank you for your reply. Is there testing that can be done for asthma? We saw an ENT for tubes (twice). He's the one who ordered the testing for reflux. Maybe we should try that route again and mention asthma. THANKS AGAIN!
