do any other autistics get phlegmy after eating anything? like need to start coughing to clear your throat? I feel like I do this much much more than anyone else.

        @Voidgoat do you have any idea why???? Do you have any other comorbidities that explain it??

        • Voidgoat

          @SunInAugust No clue. I mean I feel like I almost always have phlegm in my mouth but certain foods and drinks (including water) make me just cough after ingesting them 🤷🏻

        @Binbin saaammmeeee! I feel like it happens to me more than it does other people i eat with. Its not just that my nose runs if its spicy- it happens with a lot of foods.

      Omg ... I thought it was just me ... I absolutely didn't know this was a thing !!! I don't have allergies but my sinuses are always draining and as with you after eating sometimes drinking it is more excessive

        @Vyp3rG0d riigghhtt??? I couldn't find anything on the internet about it I dont understand it

          @SunInAugust i think alot of the reason why so much is still unknown is cause they don't know what to look for or what to ask and we don't yet know what isn't as it "should be" and if/when we do we don't know how to elaborate it and if we somehow do all that will we actually do it and how much time has passed deducing our way through this analytical labyrinth

      Sorry, but what is phlegmy exactly?

      • SunInAugust

        366d

        @Redvelninja like the saliva in your throat when you have to clear your throat to properly breath or speak

        • Redvelninja

          @SunInAugust oh. Then yes sometimes happens with me. Not sure what that has to do with having asd, but it probably most likely has to do with being dehydrated.

      absolutely. So much is left to learn. I'm constantly amazing by the subtle things I thought were quirks that are actually "symptoms". Or in the least, differences

      I absolutely feel this!! I'm 36 & ever since I can remember, dairy, sugar & things with lots of preservatives will all cause sinus drainage for me. I also had sickly, disgusting tonsils til I was 17; then I finally got them removed. It's cut down on (but not eliminated) the almost yearly strep throat, but it didn't do anything for the amount of phlegm/sinus drainage I get from eating & drinking. Also, my body suddenly decided it was lactose intolerant at 35, last year. 😑

      This usually happens to me when I eat hotter foods (temperature wise, not necessarily spicy). It's not in my mouth but in my throat or chest. I've never known why.
