    Acid reflux cough? What does it sound like? Worried about daughter ...

    My daughter who is in her early 20s has had a cough since early Oct, itís now mid Jan. She takes a deep breath in and coughs out with force. Then seconds later, does the same thing. Itís can get more often, and is much worse when she lays down. They thought she had asthma and was on two steroid puffers (Bree and an orange one) as well as nasonex as she had a sinus infection and still gets this cough... She was very sick two years ago in feb. took forever for her to feel better. She does saline nasal rinses...today had a chest X-ray, bloodwork and Hpylori test. She is in school and does get very stressed about the homework.
    Canít seem to find anything online that resembles her cough. She has been back to the dr 8 times... this time a different dr who wants her taking the pills (starts with r) for acid reflux.

    Any information about reflux and a cough would be greatly appreciated! Thanks so much

    No one really knows why acid re-flux sometimes causes a cough; but they do know that when acid results in mucus in the esophagus, it can cause a cough which irritates the larynx. Gerd is extreme acid re-flux and Gerd is especially prominent when laying down, which results in more coughing.

    Medications to help break down the acid will help. I would listen to the doctors and try whatever they are suggesting.

    I hope she is feeling better and has gotten over that cough. I have the same thing going on. I thought that my cough that has been going on for a month was long but she has suffered a whole lot longer. Please let me know if she has found relief and what helped her out. All the best.
