Tickle in chest when breathing in, but no cough. Treated for allergies, asthma, and GERD, but symptoms are random. Chest Xray clear. Anxiety related?

Possibly. Glad your exams seem tto rule out major issues. Still, you want to relieve this. Before medication for anxiety, try CBT therapy to evaluate it. Combo w/ meds works better than meds alone if they're even needed. Best wishes!
