My mom developed a cough about 2 years ago. It's a really wracking cough that is debilitating. It's horrendous to listen to and there is nothing we can do to help her. We do not smoke.
She brings up clear flegm has had chest xrays, blood tests, spirometry, echocardiogram. She has seen 3 different specialists who have diagnosed anything from post nasal drip to acid reflux to haven't got a clue. She's presently prescribed omeprazole 20mg and Spiriva inhaler. The doctors have seen her coughing but cannot come to a definitive diagnosis. She has had a couple if courses of prednisolone (30mg x 5 days) and always feels better afterwards but it never lasts.
My mother is 85 years old and feels that no one believes her!!
Anyone else suffered like this or found a cure?
Many thanks for reading
