I know this affects the Ataxia patient but I find myself coughing more and more when eating and especially when drinking liquids and I’m NOT talking about alcohol which I don’t drink but very rarely. Sometimes, when eating, the food goes down but tickles my throat and I cough on and off for a good ten minutes. I don’t cough for a long time when drinking liquids but I do have to cough. Incidentally, this includes plain water. Annoying? You bet it is!
Also, I find that my nose gets stuffed especially during the nighttime sleeping hours. Any of this sound familiar?
