I experience a typical probem - that of starting of abrupt coughing as and when I laugh heartily(deep breadth). Same thing happens if I exhert by running or any type of aerobic excercises. After exherting, I start coughing. I cough every time I inhale breadth. It settles down after some time. Another typical thing is that I cough immeditely after having a meal. Some cough also comes out at that time. In the past, during medical tests, my lung capacity has been detected as a bit less than normal. This test I must say was not reliable. But the docter had formed an opinion that I am a smoker, though I am a non-smoker, have no tobacco habits and am only an occasional drinker. I am generally a healthy person.

I am not getting a firm and convincing opinion on this condition, though I have no major problem due to this.

  • This may be a stretch but have someone check your brain activity. Could be a seizure or ticks or I could be very wrong don't want to scare you. I would check it out. A CAT scan should do it.

  • Thanks to all concerned for their suggestions. I would like to share some further information on this problem. I had in past(@ 8-10yrs back) got a proper lung function test done, which initially indicated loss of lung power, but subsequently established lungs performing even better than a normal healthy person. Secondly I have consulted a Homeopathic doctor on the above problems. He has diagnosed as follows - 1. For the coughing problem he opines that it is EXERTIONAL ASTHEMA, which causes slight shortness of breadth whenever I would exhert and settle down once I take a few minutes rest. This as per him is an allergic condition which will gradually develop into Asthema. 2. For the cough after meals, this doctor, as well as an Allopathic Physician are of the opinion that this is a condition called Gastro Esophageal Reflux Disease(GERD), which is basically caused due to stress and is generally prevelent in Sr. Corporate Executives. They have strongly recommended courses for about one and a half months I have been doing for past some time. For the past about couple of months I have been having coughing problem, which refuses to get resolved. In fact for past one year, I have been having throat infection and coughing problems on and off. So ultimately I decided to go for Homeopathic treatment in an attempt to get a permanent solution. This treatment has been going on for past @ one and a half months, but with no visible results.Hope above information will give a better understanding of the problem.I earnestly request all for your opinions considering the above.Thanks & With Warm Regds.Paras

  • Have you ever been tested for, or have you investigated food allergies??? They are of course individual to each person, but I know when I don't eat wheat for long periods of time, I breath better upon exertion, my heartburn disappears and ears don't get congested

  • Hi there!This may sound strange, but are you arouind an area that has persistent or undiscovered black mold? I was living in a house that had a leaky pipe in the wall. I began getting the constant coughing, can't take a deep breath, etc. Well come to find out (once the water began to leak under the wall) that I had been breathing mold for quite a long time and it developed into asthma. After a few months of treatment, I was able to stop medcations for it.. Something to look in to...Yvette
