In brief: Reflex
Coughing increases your intra abdominal pressure, decreases the pressure in the chest when you breath in.
Sometimes this induces reflux acid to come up into the esophagus. You may induce a gag reflex like this or from thick mucus. That types of spasms can be a part of a particular illness called pertussis that you could get checked for.
