I have had a chronic, non-productive cough for over 3 years; with recent feeling of lump in the throat. I had allergy tests, exam by Ear/nose/throat dr., upper endoscopy, 24 hr ph monitoring; barrium swallow; with nothing definite on what this is.... volume reflux? laryngeal sensory neuropathy? It happens most often while awake, rarely while asleep; however, I will cough if I'm sleeping on my right side, but not on the left. Gastro dr. is not convinced I have acid reflux, but something is triggering the cough reflex. Peppermint oil seems to calm it down. I am not overweight, get alot of regular exercise, never eat foods that would make reflux worse. Have no 'typical' acid reflux symptoms... no heartburn or other gastric disturbances.Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
