Anxiety may be one cause, COVID 19, a cardiac condition and respiratory infections should be excluded. If you are dizzy, vomiting or air hungry, please see acute care. GERD is one condition which may lead to aspiration, nausea and cough. Reduce stress, avoid excessive caffeine and monitor your breathing and temperature. Watch for signs of difficulty swallowing.
