Medical Questions? Ask a Doctor Online!
Hello! My name is***** to JustAnswer. I'm reviewing your question now, and will post back with your reply momentarily.
Do you have any fever ?
Chest pain ?
Any known allergies ?
Have you seen an ENT doctor as well?
Please clarify was PE ruled out on scanning ?
Thanks for the information
I think your current symptom of coughing is related to a sinus problem. Sinus problem can give such coughing and also a post nasal discharge. Sinus allergy or a sinus infection are most likely reason for such symptoms. In my view you will be better served if you see a qualified ENT specialist to assess your sinuses. A CT Scan of the para nasal sinus will be required as well. The feeling of choking which you experience is due to pooling of secretions from the sinuses over the vocal cord/airways. I think you will feel better if the sinus issue is addressed properly. So make an appointment with an ENT doctor. In the meanwhile you can take some anti histamine like Cetrizine,Nasocort drops and Sudafed to help improve your symptoms. A PPI like Omeprazole will also help in reducing the acid secretion in your stomach which can further worsen the cough due to regurgitation of acid upward toward the airways

If done Please leave a POSITIVE (3 – 5 stars, preferably 5) rating by clicking on the stars above, until you do I am not compensated for my time. You can continue to ask follow-up questions even after the POSITIVE rating
You are welcome
The hindrance or limitation is that we cant examine a person physically on this forum. A normal X-ray and CT scan of chest mainly rules out a lung pathology so the other reason for such symptom should be searched for. Sinus problems are the common culprit. As you haven't seen any specialist of the field so I suggested you to start with an ENT .
