I started with a very bad cough for no reason in 2014. I had this for 8 months. The GP told me it was acid reflux and gave me PPI tablets (of course he did!)
I didn't take them as I've heard awful things about them. Anyway, for some reason, can't remember why, I decided to go gluten free and like magic my cough disappeared!
It didn't come back until April this year when it came back with a vengeance. I had problems breathing in not out and I know it's not my asthma. My cough has steadily got worse. I finally gave in to PPI's as I needed to breathe! Lol.
I was on them for 3 months and they made no difference. I came off them with no difference to cough or breathing so I'm fairly sure it's not reflux.
What I'm asking you lovely people is could the cough and the breathing issue be attributed to Hashimoto's? My Endo says no but I'm not sure.
The cough comes and goes and does not correlate with acid type food or drink.
Thank you for reading and sorry the post is so long!
