I have Parkinsons Disease and have had it for about 4 yrs. About a year ago I developed a persistent Chronic dry gagging cough, that has made my ribs hurt at times and its worse when I eat. Usually I am able to sleep at night but then I take alot of medicine so that usually isn't the problem. The minute my feet hit the floor it starts and tonight I can't sleep. I've seen an ENT, an allergist and was in the hospital due to a parkinson related problem but the cough really wasn't addressed. The did do a modified barium swallow which showed nothing. I am on medication for reflux for which I have not really had any symptoms. I had some vomiting last Sunday but I don't think it was related to the cough. I do cough until I almost vomit at times. My voice gets raspy a good bit Now I am scheduled to see a gastroenterologist in Nov. Has anybody got any clues as to what this problem can be. I've lost over 20 lbs and really didnt have that much to loose. I'm down to 104 lbs but I just dont want to eat.
Can anybody help? Ive had no fever, no stomach pain, but my back does hurt sometimes. I need help, Im awfully tired.
