Hi Jenna, I don't want your post to go unanswered, have you read this thread:

Perhaps you could see your GP again?

Hope the coughing stops soon.

Maybe film an episode and play it to doctor...could be whooping cough. Check out whooping cough vit c protocol and dose up as it really helps manage symptoms

I wonder if you might be experiencing gastro oesophageal reflux - acid from the back of the throat can come up, and hit your vocal cords, which can make them spasm so you can't breathe. Getting better by being sick would fit in with it. It would be more likely if you also have any trouble with heartburn (pain in the middle of your chest), or tend to be sick easily, or ever taste sick at the back of your throat.
