Thank you for your detailed response!
Given the onset of coughing after eating and the greater severity of the condition in the evening, it is possible that this sensation is due to gastroesophageal reflux. You may want to try to avoid spicy foods, alcohol, coffee and fatty foods (such as fast food) that can contribute to acid reflux
In terms of medications, you could try Zantac (or Ranitidine) 150 mg twice a day, morning and evening, 30 minutes to an hour before meals. You may want to try this medication for one to two weeks, as it is available over the counter in pharmacies
If the symptoms persist or worsen, I suggest that you consult your doctor
I remain available if you have any other questions.
