I am new to this forum; I joined because my Mom has been diagnosed with bronchiectasis. After 15 years of coughing and mucus congestion she was finally diagnosed. She wanted me to ask if any of you experience coughing after eating or drinking. My Mom said she can take just a sip of water or eat one or two bites and start coughing and it takes a long time to get her throat clear afterwards. It does not seem to be a sensitive area of her throat and she does not experience the trouble breathing that another member described here. She has been checked by an ENT doc and they did a swallow test that did not result in any findings. She has also been tested for gerds and acid reflux and does not have either one.
Just wondering if eating or drinking causes things to be worse for anyone else here.
