I would get checked out, that is how I started and it got a LOT worse after 7 months well we were looking into causes. It got to the point it was waking me up 4-5 times a night choking because I was coughing so much.
There is part of asthma/reactive airways that is called cough-variant asthma and coughing is sometimes the only symptom.
There are other things that can cause it as well, like acid reflux (with or without symptoms), lingering cough after respiratory infections and sinus problems; coughing due to post nasal drip.
