Chronic Cough Syndrome

I have for the past Year Chronic Cough syndrome which is being investigated. I have been prescribed so many different tablets, Inhalers and the moment I have Nasel spray called Avamys which is not really helping, but have to use this for 3 Months. I have had Bronchoscopy, MRI scan, ChesyXray, Allergy tests and blood test. All came back clear All this coughing that I through the day and night has affected my quality of life. I have not had a good night's sleep for a very long time. This is really getting me down but I do have to stay focused. If I could collect the amount sweets that I have been offered, I could collect a very large sweet jar. I would be very much be interested if anyone else out there has this problem. I have tried Herbal remedies and Accuputure which helps for a day then it all comes back. Any advice would be much appreciated. Thankyou in Advance.

I have the same thing. My Oncologist put me on prednisone to see if that helps. So far it has gotten better but not totally gone.


I have had bronchitis and the flu since 22 Feb I’m sure flu has probably cleared up as I don’t have any fever now. But can’t get rid of this bronchitis and relentless cough that sound like I’m coughing up one or both lungs. I have seen a pulmonologist last week and I did fine on my pulmonary function test but my pulse ox when the nurse tested it was 88. I have been keeping up with my pulse ox since I got sick. My o2 has been running 89-91. I also have a place on my left lower lobe that everyone thinks it’s benign and fungal. It’s been there since last year and has gone from a 3mm to a 5 mm in a yrs time. My Dr is talking about doing a lung wash if I’m not better next week. In the mean time I’m struggling for air. Any suggestions or thoughts
