does anyone ever find themselves having coughing fits? it’s usually after I take a sip of water and it’s almost like it’s not going down. I’ll drink the water and feels like I can’t catch my breath, then I’ll cough and it won’t start until my throat is basically sore 😭 it’s been happening for months and it’s usually when I eat but now it’s happening with plain water. suggestions?
Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome (POTS)
I get that. And it almost feels like it’s just stuck there
exactly!!! other times, I’ll have a stabbing feeling in my chest. I know some people have said that it’s acid reflux but it feels differently than that. have you found out what yours is?
It might be worth asking your doctor about having a swallowing study done to rule out any motility issues in your esophagus. I hope you get answers and some relief soon 💙
Yes, but I have trouble swallowing for a couple different reasons so I'm constantly having liquids going down the wrong tube lol
