Why do I cough when I finish eating? Why is it hard to breath when I lay down? Why does my hand get stiff? Why do I hear ringing in my ears?

In brief: Not related

The hand and ear symptoms are not related to the cough and breathing.
Start with the cough after eating and ask your primary care doc (pediatrician, family doc, etc). You may have gastroesophageal reflux. That would also cause breathing problems. Difficulty breathing could also be asthma, anxiety, etc. Start with one thing at a time, the most important one first.
