Sounds possibly like seizures, but I've never heard of seizures being brought on by coughing. I've heard of them brought on by hyperventilating, though. Do you hyperventilate when you cough? Have you had an EEG? If not, I suggest you see another doctor.

The coughing itself maybe a partial seizure. If you look on the epilepsy ontario site it mentions many symptoms of partial seizures including a choking sensation, etc. What's further convincing is the fact that you are jerking afterwards. Good luck!
