In brief: Chilling' out

For some folks, cold can make their airways spasm and narrow ("bronchospasm").
This is like the reaction that people with asthma have. If this happens all the time (and you really like eating or drinking cold things), consider using an inhaler.

In brief: Reactive airways?

I agree with dr. Yep; please see your doctor for examination and possibly some lung function testing.
Your doctor can then determine the diagnosis and work with you to find the best treatment regimen for you.
