Hi. I have a chronic cough that is getting progressively worse and interfering with my life. Here are the triggers: food touching both sides of the back of my tongue, talking, singing, whispering, turning my head to the side and up, anxiety, Symptoms- cough until I gag, sometimes wet sometimes dry, and when I cough really hard I feel a burning in my chest and wrists and I get an instant headache on both sides of my head. Food gets stuck in my throat and I have trouble swallowing sometimes. And sometimes when I cough it feels like I am coughing up into my nose. Bizarre isn t it? I am on meds for high blood pressure and reactive airway disease. I don t have acid reflux. Barium swallow was normal. I am 55 years old and in great physical condition otherwise. :) I was thinking glossopharyngeal or another nerve. Good luck with this one!
