Does anyone else get really congested after eating bread or dairy? It’s really those only 2 foods that bother me (at least that I’ve noticed). It drives Fiance up the wall because I start coughing like crazy trying to loosen it all up. Has anything helped you with it?

I do get a bit phlegmy (sp?) after drinking dairy. I think it’s pretty common, in school we were told not to have dairy before choir practice.

@BoiledPNut: Dairy can increase mucus (hence why singers are advised not to have dairy before performing).
If you are getting very congested to the point of breathing difficulty it might be good to see an allergist. You could be having some sort of allergic reaction.
