What is causing my coughing.

I have acid reflux which is controlled by medication and diet. I have no gallbladder. I do have asthma and although they say I have no allergies I believe they are wrong. I am constantly coughing. When I get upset or hot, I start coughing. I don't know what is causing me to cough. I can be sitting and watching TV and start coughing for no reason. Any suggestions?

Hi bearssp,

Here are some common causes of coughing that you may find helpful to look through. A chronic dry cough can be a sign of mild asthma as well as allergies, among other things. Have you spoken with your doctor about what you are experiencing?

Best wishes,
Atti

R U taking BP meds. some of them can cause coughing. I had that problem which was almost 100% resolved by changing meds. Also if you live in a very dry climate, such as Arizona........I find it helps to make sure I drink enough water.

But the best resource is your primary care doctor.
