I had a cold almost four months ago and have had this phlegmy cough ever since, the phlegm is light green. The doctor breifly listened to my chest and said it was fine, he suggests acid reflux?? I have not had any other acid reflux symptoms, I am of normal weight and eat healthily, I have even cut out dairy products to try and shift this cough. Is it likely to be a serious condition given that my doctor didn't hear anything on my chest? I have symptoms of a bunged up nose sometimes but other than that I'm not running a fever and have no other cold symptoms, just the phlegmy cough and sometimes I feel breathless and tired with it when its at its worst. I have never suffered a cough for more than a week before this and I have never smoked, I recently had positive tests for ANA and Rheumatoid factor due to abnormal lymph node swelling and constant illness and am, currently under invetigation for auto-immune conditions. Any help will be greatly appreciated - thanks
