My husband is a 35 year old who has FUO since May4th, 2006. He developed a dry cough 7 weeks ago. It seems to be caused by an irritation in his lower throat. He has had an "extensive work-up" and even traveled to Boston from our home in Maine yesterday for a "second opinion" and it was a disappointing trip. Does anyone have any idea what could be causing his illness? Especially this strange and persistent cough? (he is a non-smoker)
