Hello friends.. Im having cough with phlegm only in morning hours after waking up. I have read a post about GERD,if excess acid is produced and irritate the lung, even then cough may occur to remove excess mucous. Also that i have asthma could it be triggered. Im on medication though fever and cold subsided cough continues. So i thought i would share this to know more

This type of reflux is known as LPR, you can find a lot of info about it here:

But I think you should do more tests to confirm it, there can be other conditions that have these symptoms.

Hello and welcome.  Your Dr. can establish the diagnosis and work with you to develop a plan of care, so please do make an appointment.

Hi Docpad,
Welcome to the forum!  Please listen to Kitt and make an appointment.  If you have an asthma/allergy doctor, that would probably be a great option, as he/she will be knowledgeable regarding your lung symptoms as well as the possiblity that reflux can be exacerbating your symptoms.
If you have asthma, you know that lung symptoms can continue long after a cold or allergy exposure.  Yes, acid reflux can make things even worse.  Morning phlegm and lung mucous is common with lung and throat irritation. 
Please make an appointment, and let us know what you find out.
Very best wishes,
Denise turn
