Have Medical Questions? Ask a Doctor Online!
HI, Thanks for your question. My name is***** and I am here to help you today. I will be happy to help you with your follow-up questions also. I need few details.
When exactly you quited smoking?
Do you have any symp***** *****ke nasal obstruction, nasal discharge, headache?
Do you cough more when you are in bed?
Kimberly thanks a lot for your input. Your reply is surely going to help me to provide a good answer. Yes some people do cough more after quiting smoking because the small hair cells in our respiratory tract start healing after cessation of smoking. In this process of healing irritation is caused and that result in cough. But that cough is supposed to last no more than one month. So in my opinion that is not your cause. In my opinion as per your description, the cause in your case can be acid reflux from your stomach. The difficulty in swallowing and coughing more in morning also indicate towards that. I will address your question in two aspects; what you can do yourself and what your doctor can do for you. As far as what you can do yourself is concerned in such situations OTC cap Omeprazole 40mg once daily in morning, before breakfast for two weeks can provide excellent relief. In addition to that few steps like sleeping with head end of the bed elevated slightly by a pillow, avoidance of smoking, drinking and spicy foods can help you a lot. Make sure that you don't sleep just after your meals, give a break of two hours at least. If symptoms persist then definitely your gastro doc will further assess you but hopefully you will feel better soon. I hope this helps you.

Kimberly thank you so much for providing these details. The most common cause of eye twitching is stress, fatigue and excessive use of caffeine and alcohol. The other causes can be eye problems like eye inflammation, brain disorders etc. Sometime calcium and other mineral deficiencies can do this also. As per your symptoms, i am of the opinion that eye or bran disorder is not likely in your case. So first suggestion is to relax.. Do breathing exercises to reduce your stress. Avoid alcohol, caffeine and tea. Take diet rich in calcium like milk, yogurt, cheese etc. You should also take any over the counter multivitamin tablet. Lastly if the problem persist, see an eye doctor or even your primary. But first step is not to stress yourself.
