For more than a month or two i have a prob of coughing continuously when i have ma lunch or dinner and wen im going to bed
i won be able to eat properly. I hav to sip water every time.
This not oly happens wen i hav food but often i get this cough.
Is it associated with any phlegm production?
Im not sure. I get dry cough. And it also happens wen i hav dry throat or wen i do continuous workouts.
Where are you currently based?

Is there any acidity/burning sensation that you experience?
yeah always i hav a sensation of burning sensation
In the middle of your chest or upper abdomen?
The cough is related to gastroesophageal reflux
and i also feel lik theres a lump or somethin in ma throat.
The following measures will help
Eat small, frequent meals
dont eat late at night
Avoid spicy or oily food
But its a prescription drug
You would need to consult your physician for the same
I cant prescribe it to you in this forum
sure doc. Il consult a physician. But why is it i hav this burning sensation always.
Its again due to the reflux
actually a valve guards the lower end of the food pipe
when something goes wrong with the valve
food goes into the esophagus
this causes the burning sensation
as acid is mixed with this food
is it lik acidity is formed
acid is present in the stomach
the pain is killing doc
this gets mixed with the food
or ENO in 1 glass water
It will go away
And stop taking stress
Stress also contributes to this
If you see a doctor today
