Re: child with cronic cough only at home

No, it wouldn't be RLS in a child but repetative movement and possibly the coughing could be Tourette's Syndrome, a neurological disorder where kids develop "tics", actions they repeat for no known reason. It's controllable with medication so mention it to your pediatrician along with the lung problems.
