  • Hi. My mother-in-law had a cough for a couple of years and they did all the tests etc. and couldn't find out what was wrong with her, she drang gallons of cough medicine over the years and made her way through a mountain of lozengers. By chance she found out she had a hernia and apparently, when she had it repaired the cough went, just like that. It's worth checking it out.

  • Thank you all for the comments.Recent visit to the ENT specialist resulted in great improvement to the cough.He asked to take medication for Acid Reflex and change diet to reduce the same. The cough has almost gone.
