Neither: Thiis is a reflex that occurs occasionally after surgery due to irritation of the larynx. It causes "roaring disease"in horses when they eat a plant that contains an enzyme that destroys vitamin b1. It is beause of an irritability of the recurrent laryngeal nerve that innervates the cords. Get rid of all sugar "junk" and try taking b1. See a nutritionist for details and look it up in wikipedia.
