Re: Coughing for almost a year

I suspect that the cold started it, but something else is perpetuating it.

First, I would see an allergist. Skin scratch testing can find out whether you are allergic to the cats or anything else.

Second, get the heartburn under control through medication, weight loss and/or dietary changes. Acid reflux disease can cause a cough, believe it or not.

And hang in there!
