" I've had that problem but since being on therapy (Advair), I've been okay. But before, drinking anything really cold or eating ice cream would have me coughing and wheezing terribly. "

" Yes I cough every time I have a mocha frap. It never fails. I can eat ice cream, but the iced frappacinos make me cough for about 15 min. I know a few people who become bronchospastic after cold drinks. "

" Ice cream & ice drinks make me cough. I have problems outside when the temps are below 25 degrees. I use a mask or scarf but it is like the air is extremely thin & I cough. "

" Hi guys,

cold air causes bronchospasms. one of the first things we learn is NOT to give ice water to asthmatics/COPD'ers, as it causes bronchospasm. So, if you start having an acute attack, DO NOT drink anything cold! :) "

" Happens to me all the time...yeah, like Marah, I thought it was just me too until I started reading these boards. It's unfortunate because I used to love icey cold drinks. Wahhh! "
