Hello,I am Dr Ken and I will be helping you today.Were any investigations obtained to look for the cause? Do you have any diagnosed medical condition?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

No I done think it is serious enough to go to the GP in these times when they are overlooked

Expert:  Ken replied 1 year ago.
Coughing after having food indicates that the epiglottis {flap which closes air way when you swallow} is not working optimally. This needs to be evaluated. The cause can be varied - Inflammation, infection, some mass, neurological cause, diabetes.If you were my close friend or relative - I would get you evaluated {ENT is preferred} along with few investigations like blood tests/ scopy would give us more answers.Wish you well.Best

I prefer to stay with Homeopathy with which I have had great help with more serious problems other the years, sadly there in no homeo. anywhere near me now. the man who greatly helped me is dead.

Henry,

I will opt out so that some other expert can help you better.
