Hi guys, it's me Angel!

How are you doing? I've been feeling alot better after 2 weeks of finishing medication. No more heartburn, shortness of breath, indigestion! Ive been following threads here and learning from so much from them.
So after almost two months, the cough is still there, like my throat's itching and i cough often. Sometimes, my ribcage or back hurts whenever I cough, sometimes not. I dont know if it is still related to gerd, but I have been cleared by my pulmonologist just last month, she says my lungs are ok. I also have been maintaining my diet, avoid triggers (though sometimes I cant avoid meals with preservatives).
One thing I think is allergy? Or stil it's GERD?
I also have lots of muscle, back, arms pain BEFORE, but a lot better now, just in the middle, couple of inches from the spine. Sometimes i dont know if it's just anxiety or what, i feel pain like heartburn on my chest but mostly pain like heartburn but happening on my back. It really is my main problem from the beginning! I wonder if it's common on gerd to have cough and mild muscle/back pain, but no heartburn or stomach issues!
The pain is not really painful! I cant explain but it is really a discomfort.

Hi Angel
You might have Vagus Nerve damage, that makes your throat very sensitive and the smallest tickle will make you cough. I have both LPR and vagus nerve damage. My cough was unbearable and for over 30 years it went misdiagnosed so nothing helped. Two years ago I finally found a doctor that diagnosed me correctly and  saved me.  I am on  amitriptyline (Elavil) that helps with the nerve damage. Check out the voice institute of ny. It has some valuble information that will help, and of course ask your doctor of the possibility of the nerve damage, but don't be suprised if they tell you no, only because they do not know anything about it.
Good Luck
Toni

Thanks Toni for the info! Atleast I might give an idea to my doctor, and I hope he knows about it and consider it! Ive been dealing with this for the past couple of months and so tired!
Hope you have a great day ahead of you!
