Pressure point for gagging???
Sometime ago, either here or over on TN, someone posted a list of ways to use pressure points to control pain and things. One of the things that was listed was a pressure point to stop the gag reflex.
Since I've been sick, a couple weeks ago, I cough and just about puke. My gag reflex is always loaded with a hair trigger. Anyone remember this or know what it is??
Keep your minds out of the gutter. I'm serious, here.
Any help in this matter would be greatly appreciated.

Sort of. Like, when you have a headache, you can rub the area between your thumb and forefinger and the headache will miraculously go away. Try it, it works. This was the same type of thing, but I can't remember it and I can't find it on Google. Only thing I can find is some stuff you spray in the throat called "Deep Throat".....I wonder why. Not exactly WHAT I was looking for.

A tourniquet? Oh wait, those are to stop nose bleeds.

MM, when I cough and almost puke, I pick up the phone and call the doctor.

That's what Kathy says.
Seriously, I know my throat is still swollen, pretty bad, so it doesn't take much to get me gagging.

I know that some dentists use either accupressure or accupuntcure on the ear to help with pain and gagging during dental procedures.
The lower lobe is suppose to help pain and the upper is for gagging.

Thanks, I'll try the upper ear next episode I have. Well see if that works.

Hey if giving yourself "OOMAKS" works then have fun.
