Has anyone ever heard of post viral syndrome? I have had a cough for 6 months that begins with more than a tickle, almost like an electric buzz in the back of my throat then a gag which I try to get rid of by coughing and clearing my throat. It is kind of a panic like situation and usually makes me bring up clear mucous, sometimes even some stomach contents.
I've been to the doctor a number of times, twice to the ER for this. Have been referred to a neurologist to rule out any malformations that may be interferring with the gag reflex and fortunately that was fine. Recently saw an Ear/Nose/Throat doctor who said he believes this is Post Viral Syndrome with either a sinus component or an allergic component. Had a CAT scan of the sinuses today. Any news I could find on it on the internet say it's involves chronic fatigue. As a severe fibro sufferer, I always have that. There is some info on Post Viral Cough and some of that sounds familiar.
At this point I'm fit to be tied with it all. I have pulled a muscle off the iliac crest on one side of my pelvis from all my wretching. I just want it to end!!! It's impossible to try to work like this!!!!
