I have had a persistant, non productive, irritating cough for 15 years. It keeps me awake at night (my husband now sleeps in another room) and has led to the termination of my teaching career as I cannot control a class with tears streaming down my face. I cannot answer the phone with confidence, attend concerts or church services - even eating out is a nightmare.
I am on omeprazole and ranitidine but they don't seem to be helping. I have gained a lot of weight and suspect the medication may be involved as I really really eat carefully. Is there anyone else in the same situation?
