Coughing For Years

Vaiwinchester Says:

I had been having this dry severe cough for years and meeting doctors after doctors still couldn't reach to cure. One has said that I have sensitive nose and has given me budenase spray. One other have diagnosed me with lung infection after an x-ray while the public hospital I have been following through appointments have diagnosed me with gerd and laryngitis and thus giving me pantoprazole which I have been taking for 3 years and to no curing as well. I need this coughing to stop. Could you help me please?

I am very sorry about what you're going through, Vaiwinchester. That has to be so very annoying.

Have you been tested for allergies? They can cause a dry cough like that, according to NIH studies. Are you on any other medications? Some of them can cause a dry cough as side effects.

Have you tried seeing an ENT or gastroenterologist? It might be time for some second opinions.

Yeah it was the ENT specialist of the public hospital had diagnosed me with gerd and giving me pantoprazole at every appointments. They did a scope through my throat and it was swollen due to gerd so they prescribed me with the meds. Aside from coughing, I have breathing difficulties as well sometimes.

Nope I haven't been tested for allergies. Are there any other possibilities as well? I went for Mantoux test and they confirmed that it is not tb.
