My wife has been coughing for 14 years. It's on and off. When it starts it stays for 2-3 months. After that she will be 100% normal. Pattern is not repeatable. We dont know when it is going to start again. It can start in 3 months, 6 months or even 1 year again. Whatever medications you take, it is going to stay for 2-3 months. Definitely it is not seasonal. Other than this issue she is healthy. Eats Vegetarian+Eggs (No meat, fish). Not overweight.
Following tests didnt show anything positive:
Tests done: Chest Xray, PFT, Endoscopy, ENT with camera, Vocal card check, Capsule insertion for acid reflux check, biopsy of stomach lining for H Pilori, CT Scan, Yearly check ups and Blood tests all comes normal.
Observations: Lungs stay clear. No post nasal. No acidity.
Symptoms: Cough with clear mucus. Mostly in morning and before or during eating. No cough in night. So sleep is not affected.
I appreciate your input, if anyone of you have any insight or experienced in your family or friends.
Tried Chinese Herbal, Homeo and Accupuncture alternatively.
