if it helps, I went to Doctor Bastian a few years ago, he checked everything. If you got an insurance or something it might be worth a check. You can also mail him
What does he feel?
I took nasal sprays, anti alergic medication, proton pump inhibitors. The best one that worked is amitryptiline and now I don't take it anymore.
I had also barium swallows CT scans,endoscopies and ph test with impedance, all OK
I attach you an article from Bastian where you can read yourself and see if it matches. Some of them have videos where it's better explained
Does he feel a tight throat?
if so it could be this
It sometimes makes you feel like mucus in the throat and you do a barking cough to get it out. Again, he has a video. Maybe your kid might be able to relate if it matches his symptoms.
Again, I don't pretend to hype this doctor. But from my experience he was knowledgeable althought couln't help me that much since I have a diverticulum that could be causing the left over symptoms.
Also a CT scan might rule out anything dangerous
EDIT: Forgot something. I tried a corticosteroid that made all symptoms go away, but somehow they returned after one month or so. I think it could be worth a try if you get a doctor to prescribe it to you. It's called Trigot Depot and worked absolutely amazing in 2012 for me. Since I have a diverticulum this nbmight be the reaosn they eventually returned. But if everything is clean on his side, it might be worth a try
Again, talk to your doctor about
everything, but I wouldn't be surprised if his damage is self perpetuing. he coughs, hurts the zone and the tissues around and then keeps coughing, in a vicious cycle
