Good morning, and I am glad that night is over,  Started with the choking cough, goes on and on until I am on the verge of being sick.  I have been feeling sick for about a week and the reflux symptoms for me have become worse.  I can feel the cough coming up as I am typing this, I try and 'breath' it down.! Spent hours researching, as i could lie down, I am sure one day i am just going to choke on my own phlegm. Something has triggered this, my diet hasn't changed, but I am under a bit of pressure at work.  Can stress make the symptoms worse.  Does anyone else get the sick in your stomach feeling?. I feel really grim this morning, totally fed up....

Sending you love and comfort as I have been going through a living nightmare for two years. Tomorrow I am scheduled hiatel hurnia and fundoplication surgery here in the US. I wish you all the best, miamia

    Good Morning    I got to the point which i coughed so hard and so often even during the day and it was quite imbarrasing.  People thinkin what is wrong with her, to the point of wanting and have vomited cupping my hand.   We were on a cruise waiting for my surgery date and it was awful i had wads of tissue to cover my mouth when it started....Thank God I am 4 months post op and all that left immediately after surgery....I have my life back and am sooo glad it was worth all that came with it...it is a slow recovery in the way of eating atleast for me it was.  Exactly 3 months into it that it took to eat all foods again.Good Luck and give it time.....stress to me did add to it, as it does stir up the acid in the stomach which in turn i believe brought on the coughing....God Bless

      I cough and it feels like there is hair in my throat so I keep coughing until I start gaging and sometimes having to throw up. This happens at work I get embarrased too. Then lately my food feels like it gets stuck in my throat and chest. I've been burping a lot since this has happened and that's not normal for me.
