Help - I'm at my wit's end! I've had a dry, hacking, gut-wrenching cough for about 7 weeks. Three doctors and still no one knows what's causing it (other than "the flu"). No fever. Had laryngitis for about 1 week but now just hoarse all the time. I cough all the time - night or day. I'm physically exhausted from coughing and not sleeping. I am now drinking cough syrup w/codeine on a regular basis, taking meds for reflux, and ambien (still can't sleep). Nothing's helping. Any one out there have any ideas, thoughts, suggestions????
