Hi all !!! Not been on here for a while.
I have a problem that I’m hoping someone can help me with !
I have had a dry, tickly cough for well over a year now. As my cough reflex doesn’t work very well, I end up almost choking and gagging when I can’t cough properly. It is also badly affecting my sleep !
I have been to my GP, seen four different doctors at my surgery, but am no nearer finding a treatment.
(I think they are just putting it down as “another MS” thing and not bothering to look any further ! )
I’ve had a chest x-ray, no problem there.
I’ve had a lung function test, also no problem.
I’ve been given an inhaler, Corsodyl spray, antibiotics and Omeprazole gastric capsules,
None of which has helped. Neither has sucking Strepsils like they’re going out of fashion !
I want to push for further investigation but unless I can be sure this has nothing to do with my MS, I fear I will be banging my head on the proverbial wall !!
Does anyone here have this problem ?
Have you found a treatment that works ?
Any help or advice would be very, very much appreciated !
Thank you (in advance !)
