Does this coincide when you eat anything? What are doing when you have these coughing fits? Have you tried any acid reflux medications?

Sherry brought up a good question about it possibly happening after you eat. That could definitely be a sign of reflux.  If you are feeling well, that should rule out bronchitis.  What about allergies, are you coughing up any phlegm? Do you have any drainage in your throat?  Back to the reflux scenario, do you have any trouble going to sleep at night because of this? Have you been to see a doctor abut this yet?
 
I am not a medical professional, but these are the only things that come to mind from what you have described.  I would definitely make plans to see your doctor.  Please keep us posted.
 
Take care!

Usually its just happens out of the blue... I just start coughing and it stops...

I havent been eating like i usually do, it feels like when I take a few bites that im full also

and yes I have Drainage and I cough up some phlem from time to time...

I am also a smoker if that helps but I quit smoking like a day or so when it started to get worse

Jay,

That's hard for me to take a guess at.  Please be sure and make an appointment to see your doctor.  By the way, welcome to HealingWell.  Let us know what you find out.

Take care!

Get it checked out by a doctor. I've had a cough linger for months because a cold flared up my Asthma. Also, smoking can cause COPD and I think chronic cough is a symptom of COPD.

When I have severe post nasal drip, it causes my stomach to feel terrible and I usually can't eat much either. And the severe post nasal drip can make me cough quite a bit too. I also know that some viral infections can linger for weeks and cause post nasal drip, coughing, sneezing, etc. that seems like it won't go away. And secondary infections in the sinuses and lungs can result in lingering symptoms also.

Let us know what the doctor says. Good luck & take care,
