    Acid Reflux?????
    JNLRMRZ posted:
    I have had a severe cough with severe phlem for a year now, and sometimes it is accompanied by a fever. I have visited eight doctors and the emergency room over the past year to see what this is and what can be done about it. Some suggested asthma, COPD, chronic broncitis, sleep apnea etc, but none have ever said exactly what it is, except an upper respiratory infection. But today I had the stupidest answer of all......acid reflux. I know what acid reflux is, and it has nothing to do with the lungs. I have given up. Does anyone know how I can find a cure for this or even what it might be?
