I'm hoping someone can tell me what they might think is wrong with me because this has been bugging me for around half a year now.
People keep thinking I'm doing it on purpose because it sounds like I am but I'm not. They say it sounds like I try to cough up a hairball. :confused:
But when it happens, I feel like trying to cough, sort of, but the cough will not come out, so instead, I just happen (I think it's a reflex or something) to breathe out extremely heavily and quickly and semi-cough at the same time. Sort of like taking a deep breath really fast but mixed in with a cough. It's hard to explain.. really.. yeah. It happens at ranodm times, but I realize it mostly happens when I get near food. Any food.
Another info: I have had 'attacks' of this where I just start doing this so severely for a short period of time it hurts my throat. I can't stop it either, it's like, uncontrollable. The first time it happened was in the middle of class. Talk about awkward and embarassing. Actually, I've had these about 3-4 times and all were during school times where no food is present.
I am so stumped and my mom thinks I've been just eating too much junk food. Honestly, I have cut down on the junk food. I can go for days without eating it. Not even candy. So she won't take me to a doctor because she won't believe me. It's really starting to annoy me.
