I have had a chronic coughing spasms which occur at approx 2 hourly intervals throughout the working day for the past 30 years. They last about two minutes and are very violent. I have been to the top consultants and clinics in Manchester and London in the Uk and have had every known test. Maybe there is somebody out there possibly in the USA who has had similar symptoms which have been successfully diagnosed.
I have checked my symptoms against the over 200 causes of coughs on this site to no avail. Any Ideas.

  • I have had a cronic cough for 20 years. Also have had dozens of tests done and have seen every kind of doctor from an alergist to gastroenterologist and nobody seems to be able to help me either. I had throat surgery about 20 years ago, because I had a non cancerous cyst. It seems that about 3 years after the surgery the cough began. The surgery has left me with one of my vocal cords paralyzed. I am also hopping that somebody out there has a remedy for this cough too.
