My husband's cough will not go away!
My husband has had an annoying cough since the beginning of November. He had been trying to treat it with cough syrup and OTC meds, but I convinced him to finally see an internal doc at the beginning of Jan. He thought that maybe it was allergies and gave my DH an inhaler and an antibiotic (just in case). Both of these did nothing. His lungs were clear and his head has been clear with this cough. It is just a nagging cough.
Now, it sounds like he has a head cold and he is coughing up a lung again. His chest isn't congested, just his head. His chest is hurting from the cough.
I had mentioned reflux and he asked the internal doc about this and was told he would have other symptoms if it were reflux. Is this true?
P.S. He did hear a news report the other day that a virus is going around that gives you a cough for weeks. His cough has been for almost 12 weeks! HELP!
