my 7 yr. old daughter started with what sounded like she was giggleing under her breath and it has developed into a cough in her chest or throat. At times it is very loud and may sound almost like a croupy cough, but its not coming out like a normal cough( out her mouth) its like when you have a cough and are trying to stop from coughing is the best way I can describe it. It has become disruptive to her class and to her, it iakes her about 2=3 hrs to get to sleep at night because of it. Once she is in a deep sleep it stops and starts up again before she completely wakes up in the morning. Her doctor is just playing guessing games and has put her on everything from cingulair,xophenex,zyrtec,prevacid and now tells me its just a habit to get over it. Please if anyone could help I would appreciate it.
