My chronic cough is going on 5 yrs. Started with cold. Many doctors and test. It is much better but not gone. They assume acid reflux. However I don't see symptoms. I'm thin, not a big eater, and healthy eater.
I've been sleeping upright for 4 yrs. Never lye down. Never eat large or within 3 -4 hours before bed. Stand after eating.
We have ruled out lung issues, Allergies, Asthma, esophagus problems, drainage. Changed BP meds.
I did have esiniophilic bronchitis and cured, cough improved but still heavy 20 min after eating and at random times in the day. Went on high PH diet, gave up coffee, reduced acid, citris, and spicy, tried gluten free.
PH manomitry is next.
As I read this forum it seems many are in the same place I'm in. It cost so much to go through this I begin to wonder if the medical industry wants to cure us. If they could only feel what distruction this does to our lives. I'm an annoying person to work around, go to a restaurant, funerals are a nightmare for me. My fiance' puts up with me, but will he continue??
ShesOK - What he has to explain to people who think I'm choking in resturants.
