I have had a cough for two years. It starts of as a sharp pain in my throat then I have to cough to get it to go away. Sometimes it gets bad enough that I throw up after a big coughing fit. I have been told it is asthma but inhalers don't seem to work at relieving it.
Any help would be appreciated

  • Have you been testedd for acid-reflux? Where acids from your stomach back up and can affect your lungs? Try taking Nexium or on of those acid-reducing OTC meds and see if it helps.
