I have a chronic cough, sometimes dry, sometimes with clear mucus sputum. I have had 2 rounds of antibiotics, Leviquin and Atelox (sp), a clear chest x-ray and a negative CT scan of lungs with contrast within two weeks. No fever. It also happens at night. I have an endoscopy scheduled to check for reflux and condition of my espophagus which is "irritated" as shown in a barium swallow x-ray. I have had my Quinapril medication changed also, but the cough was around in a less severe form before taking that blood pressure medication. I do not present with wheezing, but do present "crackle" sounds in lower areas of lungs upon examination, but the doctor says that is due to old scarring or just lungs not completely inflating and is not concerned as the CT scan with contrast was negative. I do not smoke and am not around second-hand smoke. Any suggestions?Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
