Dry cough while drinking or eating
I have been suffering from dry cough for over two weeks now that mainly happens when I am drinking water or eating a meal. The coughing goes on for at least a minute or comes in parts as I continue to eat. I was suffering from intercostal muscle pain for past two months which has gotten much better now. And for a few days have a swollen lymph node in the neck on the right side which has no pain whatsoever and now the throat is also getting itchy and swollen. I do not have any fever or other issues swallowing or breathing. Can someone please help me figure out what this is? Are these issues related?

Hi good morning, Dry cough is mostly due to some kind of throat irritation, which may be due to various causes like allergies, reflux etc. However cough particularly during eating or drinking can be due to accidental entry of food or water in wind pipe. I will require to talk with you in details to find out the cause of your problem and suggest you the proper treatment. Please consider booking online consultation for the same. Thanks.
