I have suddenly developed a really annoying cough. I am fairly certain it is from my GERD as it has been flaring up. It's a mostly dry, choking cough, but occasionally I get a little mucus.
When I take a deep breath, it makes me cough. If I breathe very shallow, I don't cough as much. My throat is sore from all this.
Any ideas on home things I can do to ease this cough? My other GERD symptoms right now are food backing up somewhat, some stomach gas, and that full feeling when you haven't eaten much. None of these are too bad, but the cough is super annoying.
I hate going to the doctor. They usually just want to do a bunch of painful tests...then they tell me I have GERD. Well, duh!!! I don't smoke and I'm 49 so I doubt I have lung cancer or anything.
Thanks for any help!
